Amir and Faryal, who briefly split in 2017, married in a lavish ceremony at the Waldorf Astoria hotel New York in 2013 attended by 1000 guests.  

It comes after Amir recently broke the imposed lockdown restrictions in Manchester to celebrate Eid with his family and friends in his back garden.

The sportsman who lives in a £1.3million mansion in Bolton, took to Instagram earlier this month to share a slew of photographs of the festivities.

Joined by his friends and family, Amir wrote: ‘Eid Mubarak everyone! Spending Eid at home with family.’

The localised lockdown in Manchester was imposed at the end of last month. Current rules state you should not meet people you do not live with inside a private home or garden, except where you have formed a support bubble.

In the photo Amir posted, the former I’m A Celebrity star tagged professional boxer Harry Kingham and another family member who had both brought their children to the celebrations. 

The group of six all wore matching Pathani suits as they posed in the garden.

Another snap showed the boxer posing with his wife Faryal and their children.

Last month, the couple helped their youngest child celebrate his first Eid al-Fitr, just two days after their oldest celebrated her sixth birthday.  

Amid lockdown, they ensured Muhammad enjoyed the traditional religious holiday, celebrated by Muslims worldwide to mark the end of Ramadan.

Taking to Instagram, blogger Faryal shared a snap of herself and Amir cradling their son as they prepared for the event in their back garden. 

The pair were also accompanied by Amir’s proud father Shah and mother Falak for Eid, with the extended group later posing for a photo with Zaviyar in the family living room.
