Amir Khan and Faryal Makhdoom have welcomed their second daughter
Amir Khan and Faryal Makhdoom have welcomed their second daughter.
The boxer announced the news on Instagram today saying "welcome to the world."
Baby Alayna Khan weighed 8lbs 3oz. She is the second daughter to the couple after three-year-old Lamaisah.
Amir shared a photo of his newborn wearing a leopard print baby grow and a hat.
Earlier this year, rumours were rife surrounding Amir and Faryal's split after it was hinted that the boxer had asked a model to visit him in San Francisco around Valentine's Day.
Sometime after, the mum shared an image of herself, Amir, and Lamaisah with the caption 'Family.'
Amir had also previously stated that he and Faryal was filing for divorce late last year.
On Snapchat, he said:
"So me and Faryal are not together. I have filed for a divorce.
"I hear she has just announced she is pregnant. She didn't tell me. I had to read it on social media."
Amir told Aquila Style how important fatherhood was to him after the birth of his first child.
"Being a father is a fantastic feeling. I’m loving everything about it; it’s the start of a new journey for me.
"My family also keep my feet firmly on the ground and always show me moral support. They’re always there for me no matter what happens; I’m grateful and blessed to have such a loving and caring family."
The new dad's Instagram post has already received over 50,000 likes.
