Amir Khan Looks Forward To Kids, Marriage, The Future

By Nadine Linge, courtesy of The Daily Star

FIGHTER Amir Khan is boxing clever when it comes to his wedding by letting his gorgeous bride-to-be do all the work.

The Bolton star slugger is set to marry gorgeous Faryal Makhdoom next year and is sparing no expense in tying the knot.

The pair, who met through friends, will wed at the swish Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York and American girl Faryal, 20, is very much in charge.

Amir, 25, says: “Faryal is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I’m very happy.

“She is amazing and she helps me and takes a lot of the stress from me if I’ve had a bad day. It’s even better because the family get on with her.

“My wedding is next year and it’s going to be big. A Muslim wedding carries on for a week normally, so it’s going to be non-stop. It’s going to be at the Waldorf Astoria and then we will do two events in England.

“My sister is going to be arranging my part and Faryal is doing all the arranging over there.”

As soon as they are man and wife, kids are on the agenda for the former world light-welterweight champion.

“I will be 26 when I get married,” he explains. “And I want kids early so they can grow up with me.

“I want two kids, a boy and a girl. I really want to be a young dad so I can take them out and play with them.”

In typical confident Amir style, he reckons that he will be a dream husband for Faryal.

But don’t expect them to be an over-the-top, showy couple living Premier League-style lives.

Despite Amir having millions in the bank, this down-to-earth pair will be keeping things “chilled”.

He says: “With me it is different bec­ause of religion and making sure we behave respectably. Footballers’ wives and footballers go way over the top. I’m a quiet, chilled-out guy and I just want to stay happy and stay comfortable.

“I will be a nice, loving and very caring husband and totally different to what I am like in the ring.”

Amir is also planning an incredible wedding gift for his beautiful bride. He reveals: “My missus wants to get involved with make-up and bring out her own brand, which is something I’m going to help with.

“It will be a wicked wedding present to give Faryal her own company.

“She is just a normal girl but she has got like 50,000 followers on Twitter and everyone asks her where she gets her make-up from and how she puts her eyeliner on.

“I said to her, why doesn’t she just bring her own brand out? And hopefully we can emerge with a big brand and she can stand on her own feet.

“At the moment she is qualified and has a degree in political science and journalism law. I don’t really want her to work apart from stuff like having a make-up company that can hopefully keep her busy that way.”

Amir, who says he’s planning to treat 10 pals to a holiday in Spain, Miami or Vegas for his stag do, realises that their relationship will propel Faryal into the public eye but reckons his girl can handle it.

“Being a big name in the UK and people wanting to know about it means it’s going to be a big wedding anyway.

“People will want to see pictures so I think it’s going to be a big day.

“It’s all new to her because no-one knew who she was so she is just keeping calm and chilled. She is on Twitter keeping cool and chatting to people and respecting everyone.”

As an Olympic silver medallist, the recent 2012 Games were very important to Amir, and he was thrilled to be a commentator on the BBC.

He has a boxing gym in Halliwell, Bolton, which works to keep local kids off the streets, and he believes one of the effects of the Olympics will be to encourage more youngsters to get involved with sport.

He says: “It’s exciting to see what is going to happen now after the Olympics because there will be more funding involved.

“I want to see more youngsters getting into sport and more gyms opening up in different areas.

“I built my gym because I thought it would help keep young kids off the street and now I get 400 or 500 kids coming in there a week.

“It teaches kids not to fight on the street and keeps them positive.”

[QUOTE=FlatLine;12536625]not to assume anything but thats a feminist argument which is unrealistic. 99% of woman would jump at the chance of being looked after by their husbands and not have to work.. how many times have you heard women say…
