The wife of Pakistani-British boxing star Amir Khan, Faryal Khan, gave her first ever radio interview in England recently and announced that the couple is expecting a baby girl. She said, “I’m really excited, it’s amazing. A blessing. I have seen Amir change so much. He’s looking after me and being concerned. I can’t wait for the baby to come along.”

She also told the BBC Asian Network that she was originally drawn to her husband Amir because of how respectful and humble he was. “We met when he was doing a Prada shoot in New York City and I was around at the time. During that time we went for dinner with mutual friends and since then we kept in touch and became really good friends.” She added, “He says he believes in love at first sight but I don’t really believe in that. I really liked him as a person. I couldn’t imagine how humble he was. A respectful guy. It really made me fall in love with him.”

The pregnancy has resulted in Faryal having to put her career plans on hold. She had been working on her masters in political science and journalism with an eye toward becoming a corporate attorney. She also has plans to start her own line of cosmetic products. “I do want to start my own business with a few make-up products. I want to do it for all the Asian girls. Our skin tone is different. It would be nice to do something for them. “I still have my masters left to complete and I always said that I was going to go back. I always wanted to be a corporate lawyer but I can’t go back now I’m pregnant. My first priority is my child.”
