Comments Off on Amir Khan reveals what makes his marriage to wife Faryal stronger, attributes it to a second home
British boxer Amir Khan has revealed that not only does he have a second home, but it’s made his marriage to Faryal Makhdoom much ‘stronger’.
Khan has been married to Faryal since 2013 and they live in his hometown of Bolton with their three children, Lamaisah, five, Alayna, 23 months, and one-month-old son Muhammad.
While they spend plenty of time together as a family, Amir and Faryal admit they need their space like most other couples. And, with Amir worth an estimated £30 million, they can certainly afford to have a second house to have their separate time away from each other with friends.
Revealing how becoming parents has changed the dynamic of their seven-year marriage, Amir told OK! magazine: ‘It’s made it stronger. You think about each other.’ Faryal added: ‘When you don’t have kids, you think young and act young. But with kids, you do grow up and I think it does definitely make you stronger.
‘Sometimes when you can’t stand each other, you have to think that you have children… [laughs].’ Amir, who appeared in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here in 2017, then made the revelation about their second two-bedroom property, which sits close to their four-bedroom main house.
‘That’s why I’ve got the other house, so I can take a walk there,’ he explained. ‘I swear it’s the best thing ever. I do think having a separate house has also made our relationship stronger, because you’re not in each other’s face all the time.
I still need my own space sometimes, to have my friends over and have a little chill. And Faryal can do the same.’
Amir refuses to sell up in Bolton any time soon as the house holds sentimental value, with the boxer buying the properties shortly after the Olympics 2004.
