It looks like Faryal Makhdoom, the wife of British boxer Amir Khan is channelling her energy into future planning amid her ongoing feud with her husband's family. During a recent fundraising concert held at London's Troxy, the WBA star and his wife dished about their plans to add to their family-of-three.
"I would love to adopt," the 30-year-old fighter revealed during the event aimed at raising funds for the orphans throughout South Asia.
"I go to a lot of these places. When I was in Africa, I met so many young African kids and I loved them," Amir continued explaining the reason behind his noble desire. "I wanted to take them back home with me."
However, the professional boxing champion acknowledged that the actual process is much harder. "There's one boy that was really good and I said to my friend Riz, 'I'm going to take him back home'," he recalled adding, "But the process is a lot harder than you think it is."
The couple, who got married in 2013, are proud parents to their two-year-old daughter Lamaisah and have been extensively involved in working for the orphan children across the world. As a part of the initiatives for the Amir Khan foundation, the boxer has even chalked out plans for orphanages in Pakistan after the recent one in Gambia, Africa.
And it seems like his wife, Faryal, too shares the same passions as him. She told The Sun that she and her husband have always considered the idea of adoption.
"That's something we've always thought about," she said about adopting and an orphan. "I would love to. There are so many orphans that need our help and in my religion it's such a big blessing to adopt an orphan."
Incidentally, the adoption plans were revealed after the 25-year-old model once again took a dig at her boxer husband's family amid the long-standing feud. She claimed that she "doesn't give a s**t" about the ongoing row as Amir always comes back to her.
"I don't see some of his friends, I don't see some of his family members. But I'm still here. That makes him realise 'she is the one'. After all the negativity and stuff Amir gets, at the end of the day he comes home to me. So I really don't give a s**t," she said.
