Boxing star Amir Khan and wife Faryal Makhdoom are having their first child.

Amir, 26, who married his stunning bride in June, has announced the news of Faryal‘s pregnancy.

‘It’s still early days but we’re both very excited and can’t wait to be parents,’ he tells The Sun On Sunday.

‘Our families are delighted and we’re blessed to have their support and guidance.’

UK star Amir and American student Faryal, 21, got engaged in January 2012.

They tied the knot twice – first at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Manhattan, New York – then in a second ceremony in Amir’s hometown of Bolton, Lancashire.

‘Mommy in the making😊 thank you everyone for the well wishes. All your comments/duwas have made my day,’ Tweets Faryal.
