Back in August, Faryal shared the couple’s exciting news that they were expecting a son in the form of a sweet, boxing themed gender reveal video.

In the footage shared on Instagram, the stunning model and 32-year-old boxing pro stood amongst huge bunches of pink and blue balloons, with the caption of the post reading: ‘**GENDER REVEAL** We’re having Baby no. 3 💗💙💗💙 what will it be?! 👶🏻👧🏽.’

As the video plays, New York-born Faryal can then be heard saying: ‘We’re having our third child, and we’re so excited and nervous at the same time.

‘He or she, what will baby Khan be?’ Donning a huge boxing glove, Amir, who appeared on the 2017 series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!, went on to explain, ‘I’m going to punch the balloon to see what the gender is.’

After walloping the biggest balloon and releasing flurries of blue confetti, Amir and Faryal can be seen embracing in a celebratory hug as he yelled, ‘Oh wow, it’s a boy! It’s a boy!’

Amir and Faryal started dating nine years ago, announcing their engagement back in 2012. They married in May 2013 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York and welcomed their first daughter, Lamaisah, in 2014, before introducing little Alayna in 2018. They briefly split in 2018 before reconciling shortly after.
