Congratulations are in order for Amir Khan and his wife Faryal Makhdoom – who have confirmed they are expecting baby number three! The boxer and Faryal, who are already parents to daughters Lamaisah and Alayna, revealed the news in a sweet gender reveal video they posted to Instagram on Wednesday evening – and naturally, the theme of the party was boxing.
In the clip, the 28-year-old said: "Guys, we're having our third child and we're so excited and nervous at the same time. He or she? What will baby Khan be?" Former I'm A Celebrity star Amir, 32, adds: "I’m going to punch the balloon to see what the gender is". Using a giant boxing glove, Amir then wallops a huge balloon which explodes and showers them with… blue confetti! Clearly delighted, Amir shouted: "Oh wow, it's a boy." The couple can then be seen embracing each other after Faryal appears to burst into tears of joy over the news.
