It appears that things have finally settled between Faryal Makhdoom and Amir Khan’s family as all of them now seem like a big happy family.
Makhdoom and a fall-out with her husband’s family earlier this year after they disapproved of her western clothing. She later had a very public spat with her husband and after it became apparent that things could only end in a divorce, the two got back together!
According to Makhdoom, Amir’s appearance in I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Outta Here has brought the family together. She usually comes to Khan’s parents’ house to watch the TV show with everyone, including their three-year-old daughter Lamaisah.
“Faryal comes over to the house and we sit down as a family and watch the show together. Of course, it’s been nice for the family to bond again,” Amir’s father, Shah reportedly said. “Like every family we have ups and downs. If someone says they don’t, I think they’re lying. You’ve got to work through it and try to iron everything out and move on.”
“Lamaisah cheering him on and missing him a lot and I think that Amir is missing her a lot too. We keep saying to her, ‘Lamaisah, where’s daddy?’” added Shah. To this, Faryal added, “It’s really funny; I don’t think she knows what it is but she says it. A lot of people don’t realize Amir is a down to earth family man. The family is so proud of him too. We’re all on the edge of our seats watching him because we know he’s so frightened of snakes.”
Meanwhile Amir has already created waves being on the show due to his sexist remarks in which he said that doing house-chores and cooking is a woman’s job.
