Boxer Amir Khan’s wife Faryal Makhdoom says her marriage is stronger than ever, after the birth of their second daughter, Alayna.
She says Alayna a miracle child, after her birth, Amir Khan has totally transformed to a new person. He’s always home, never goes out, loves to play with the girls, I now have to beg him to leave the house.
But their marriage has been chaotic, and has regularly been rocked by reports of Amir being unfaithful, as well as bitter family rows played out in public.
Faryal says when she looks back and remember her marriage few year back, it makes her upset. But through all the ups and downs of the marriage, she never gave up and fought to save her marriage for her children’s sake.
The Olympic silver medalist put his £1.2million home up for sale and moved into a renovated bungalow.
It is understood he is house-hunting in Ascot, Berkshire, and has told pals he feels he needs the fresh start.
“Amir and I are moving to London in six to ten months, we’re just finalising on our new home,” she told.
“We are moving to London as the education is better for kids, it’s a bigger city and it’ll be similar to New York.
“Amir’s boxing related stuff is mostly based there and the commute right now is a killer so it’ll be nice.”
A friend said: “Amir knows he has to grow up, he wants to make his marriage work and knows in order to do that he needs to get out of Bolton where his family are so close.
“His family have been there for his whole career but he’s 32-years-old now and thinks its time to leave the nest.”
