Amir Khan’s wife has tonight revealed that she is pregnant in a surprise tweet as the troubled couple seek help to save their marriage.
Faryal Makhdoom posted tonight: Alhumdulilah , blessed with baby number 2 in my tummy #excited eating away, can’t stop’.
Her tweet comes after it emerged the couple have turned to an Islamic sharia law expert in a last-ditch attempt to save their troubled marriage.
Pir Shaami posted a picture of him and the Bolton fighter saying Khan had invited him to his house for a Special Dawat (dinner) and to ‘make dua for the forgiveness of his shortcomings’.

In Islam ‘making dua’ means asking Allah for forgiveness by carrying out a set of specific steps.
The spiritual leader said Khan had ‘made a firm intention to abide by the laws of Islam.’
It comes weeks after an astonishing public spat between Faryal and Khan when the boxer announced his marriage split on Twitter and both accused the other of cheating.
Khan also accused his American wife of having an affair with heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua.
The boxer was said to have told him the relationship was unhealthy during the meeting on August 15 but the spiritual leader urged him to be patient and ride it out, The Sun reported.
He said the couple should stop their public bickering and try to resolve their differences.
Faryal, an American model, had asked to meet the spiritual leader alone but he refused to unless she was accompanied by a man.
Amir Khan’s estranged wife has praised Conor McGregor for his devotion to his long-term partner in a sly dig at her own husband
She later tweeted and then deleted: ‘I respect and trust Shaykh Saqib Shaami as much as Amir does.
‘He has not been biased previously and will do justice.
‘I also respect Shaykh Saqib Shaami’s Islamic position of not meeting women to stop spreading false rumours on social media’.
A family friend of the Khans told the newspaper: ‘To Amir he explained what the rights of women are, what his wrongdoings were and why he should seek forgiveness.
‘To Faryal he has said she has equal share to blame for deterioration of relations and that she has been wrong too.’

But despite the meeting the couple’s very public spat showed no signs of abating.
Earlier today Faryal praised Conor McGregor for his devotion to his long-term partner in a sly dig at her own husband.
She posted a tweet that included a quote from the mixed martial arts superstar explaining how he’d been with his girlfriend Dee Devlin for eight years when they used to live on unemployment benefits.
Above the quote, Faryal wrote: ‘Love this. I really respect men who respect their women despite how famous they get.’
In a series of extraordinary tweets earlier this month Khan announced on social he and his wife Faryal were splitting up.
He also accuses her of cheating on him with fellow boxer Anthony Joshua – a claim he later apologised for after admitting there was ‘no truth’ to his claims.
‘BOXING WILL BE OVER’ IF MCGREGOR WINS, SAYS KHAN
Amir Khan fears ‘boxing will be over’ if Conor McGregor defeats Floyd Mayweather tonight.
Khan is wary of the wider consequences should McGregor secure what would be the unlikeliest of wins on his professional boxing debut against the fighter widely regarded as the finest of the modern era.
His concern is that so may of boxing’s followers will thereafter be seduced by MMA, and that McGregor’s and the UFC’s present popularity also serves as ‘a warning’ to the sport he has dedicated his life to.
‘If McGregor wins, boxing is over,’ the 30-year-old said. ‘Disaster, big time.
‘It should be a warning to boxing. There are a lot of titles out there.

‘It gives more people an opportunity for a title. (But in) UFC there is only one champion which makes it harder for them. The way boxing is going is fine. (But) it is a warning that you must step your game up.
‘I can’t see (McGregor) winning though. To have this fight will take whichever sport to a different level.
‘It is going to be a good fight for the first couple of rounds but I see Mayweather getting a stoppage. This could be Mayweather’s chance to finish his career on a high against a big name.
‘He’s fighting a guy who hasn’t had a fight: people are forgetting that. They know his MMA career is good. It will be exciting for a couple of rounds then Mayweather will walk through him.
‘It’s a good fight, it’s a money fight. It’s going to make a lot of money and boxing is a business.’
