The engagement ring Amir Khan gave to his wife and the latest on their marriage
In January 2012, at the age of 25, Amir Khan, popped the question to his beautiful girlfriend Faryal Makhdoom, 20. Their engagement was made official as Amir gave Faryal a huge diamond engagement ring in front of friends and family at a lavish party.
The party was held in Amir’s home town of Bolton at the Bolton Wanderers' Reebok Stadium with over 1,000 guests.
The engagement ring is made from platinum and features three enormous diamonds. The ring features three large princess cut diamonds with a pave setting on a platinum band which our diamond experts estimate to be around £100,000 in valiue. On the night Faryal also gave Amir a platinum ring encrusted with diamonds.
And whilst the two are still together, after almost 10 years of marriage, they've had their fair share of hurdles.
Amir Khan, now 34 years old, has been accused of cheating more than nine times - but vows he is a “changed man”. In a new fly-on-the-wall TV show, wife Faryal, 29, tells how she wanted the two to work through their problems, as she did not want to give up on the father of their children.
The New Yorker says she has forgiven him but still struggles with being branded a “gold-digger” and a “doormat” by social media trolls. The documentary follows the couple and their children, Lamaisah, six, Alayna, two, and one-year-old Muhammad at their £1.5million home in BBC Three series Meet the Khans: Big in Bolton.
According to The Mirror, allegations of Amir’s cheating include flings while they were engaged and while Faryal was pregnant, and online sex chats with other women.
“My relationship still gets judged for what I’ve been through,” Faryal said. “A lot of people have ups and downs – the only difference is my marriage is quite public. I married a celebrity.”
The couple said they “cherished” spending time together in the pandemic, and apologised for breaching lockdown rules.
“Sadly we ain’t stuck to the rules at times,” Amir said. “It’s been very hard for me, I have struggled because I’m at outgoing person. I love to socialise with people and see my family. I do apologise. We do regret it.”
