Who is Amir Khan’s wife?
Khan’s wife Faryal Makhdoom is a model and an Instagram star with 841,000 followeras.
Along with modelling, she has her own line of beauty products called Faryal Makhdoom cosmetics and does YouTube tutorials online.
The 26-year-old was born in Brooklyn, New Year and went to Rutgers University School of Arts and Science where she graduated with a double major in political science and journalism.
Khan and Makhdoom were first introduced by a mutual friend and they have been together for around six or seven years.
They have been married for four years after they tied the knot in 2013 with over 1,000 guests attending their ceremony.
The couple have one child together, daughter Lamisah who was born in 2014.
Are they still together?
Yes, they recently spoke about going through a “rough” patch in 2017 which saw them appear to temporarily split before reuniting.
Speaking on Loose Women about their relationship breakdown, Khan suggested that a “lack of communication” led to problems.
While Makhdoom added that physical separation between the two of them – she was in Britain while he was in the UAE – caused issues between them.
“It was just a misunderstanding. I was in England he was in Dubai, he thought he was a bit cool in Dubai doing some tweets…” she joked.
Khan explained on the ITV show: “Going through the hand injury that I had, not being in the boxing ring, being away from my family, going through a lot of stuff in my life, I think the best place for me is to be in the boxing ring.
“When I was away from that, it took me all over the place. I lost that focus and that structure. Not being in the gym, not training, when you have all that downtime you have all that energy in your body…”
However, the couple are now back together and stronger than ever with Makhdoom pregnant with their second child.
She’s six months pregnant and will be giving birth later this year but she’s admitted that she’s found it harder the second time around.
Makhdoom said: “It’s been okay. This pregnancy was a bit tougher.”
She went on to explain that she needed help getting out of bed if she lay down for too long.
