Amir Khan goes the distance on his daughter’s second birthday party
Bolton born British Boxer Amir Khan and his wife Faryal Makhdoom blew away £100k on the second birthday party Lamaisah, who is the only daughter of the couple married in 2013. In an interview with Hello! magazine, the 29-year-old talked about his daughter’s big day and how the preparations were made to make this day a success. Amir’s wife Faryal had a major role to play in this lavish bash as she was the one behind this event and it too her three months to get everything in shape.
“When I walked in, the first thing I said was, ‘Wow!’ My wife did an amazing job,” Khan told the magazine.
“I was busy training when she was planning this, but every day I was getting crazy bills and thinking, ‘What’s this for?’
“Every penny spent on my daughter is worth it, though. After all, all this hard work I do is for her, for my kid.”
Mrs Khan said: “I wanted it to be something really grand. Now I’m not doing anything until she’s 16.”
The party was for 250 guests and included Disney princesses, Peppa Pig and a real-life ballerina.
Faryal added that the arrival of Lamaisah changed their lives to a great extent and had quite an impact on Amir Khan which eventually brought them even closer.
“I’ve never seen this side of him. He comes home early – before he used to be out with his friends. But now he’s just like, ‘My wife, my child and home’.
“I have to say to him, ‘Can you please go out!’ It’s great for him and for us. He’s changed, being a father, and I’ve changed being a mother. My life is all about my kid.”
