Amir Khan’s wife Faryal Makhdoom defends her daughter’s £75,000 first birthday… after her furious father-in-law slammed her ‘ridiculous, excessive’ spending

  • The couple spent the exorbitant sum so their infant daughter could celebrate her special day with friends and family at the University of Bolton Stadium
  • Faryal has since come under fire, notably from outraged father-in-law Shah, for her ‘excessive spending’
  • But she insists her decision to dig deep was an act of fairness after previously lavishing oldest child Lamaisah, five, with an equally extravagant bash

Faryal Makhdoom has defended here right to spent £75,000 on a rainforest themed party for her youngest child’s first birthday, but insists she will not do it every year. 

The wife of professional boxer Amir Khan spent the exorbitant sum so infant daughter Alayna could celebrate her special day with friends and family at the University of Bolton Stadium.

But after coming under fire, notably from outraged father-in-law Shah, for her ‘excessive spending’, Faryal insists her decision to dig deep was an act of fairness after previously lavishing oldest child Lamaisah, five, with an equally extravagant bash. 

Speaking out: Faryal Makhdoom has defended here right to spent £75,000 on a rainforest themed party for her youngest child’s first birthday, but insists she will not do it every year

‘I did one for my eldest daughter and it was more princessy, but Alayna’s more crazy, she’s an animal lover, so I went for a rainforest theme,’ she explained during an appearance on Tuesday’s edition of Loose Women.  

‘I think it was only fair because I did one for my oldest daughter. I had a big birthday party and so did my brother, and if I didn’t I would say to my father why can’t I have one?

‘I probably wouldn’t do another big one until they get married or they’re 16-years old, but I’ve done my bit and they had a good time.’

Not happy: Amir Khan’s father slammed the ‘excessive’ first birthday party for the couple’s youngest daughter Alanya at the University of Bolton Stadium (pictured)


Only right: Faryal insists her decision to dig deep was an act of fairness after previously lavishing oldest child Lamaisah, five, with an equally extravagant bash

Reasoning: ‘I did one for my eldest daughter and it was more princessy, but Alayna’s more crazy, she’s an animal lover, so I went for a rainforest theme,’ she explained on Tuesday’s Loose Women

Faryal, 27, and sportsman Amir, 32, pulled out all the stops for Alayna as they transformed the extravagant venue into an Amazonian-inspired rainforest, complete with statues of tropical animals, vibrant bushes and a glossy jungle-print dancefloor by designers Enchanted by Syma. 

And New York born Faryal admitted the no expense spared party inevitably drew criticism from those who insisted her spending was highly excessive. 

‘I think we work so hard and every penny we earn is for our children, I just wanted to do a big first birthday,’ she said. ‘I did get some critics. I did get some people saying what about people who can’t afford it. 

Opening up: ‘I think it was only fair because I did one for my oldest daughter. I had a big birthday party and so did my brother, and if I didn’t I would say to my father why can’t I have one?’ she added

Target: New York born Faryal admitted the no expense spared party inevitably drew criticism from those who insisted her spending was highly excessive

‘Because I’m Pakistani, we do have big celebrations, culturally it was something that I would do. It’s just really for your children.’  

‘I wouldn’t do another big birthday every year… they can talk about it, I still look at my first birthday. At least they can both look back to it.’ 

She added: ‘Times have changed, I don’t think it’s the pressure, it’s just that I work really hard and so does my husband, everyone has a budget even people that can’t afford it still save up.’ 

Hitting out: Amir’s parents Shah and Falak had previously slammed their granddaughter’s ‘ridiculous’ £75,000 rainforest birthday party – and said they weren’t invited

Amir’s parents Khan’s parents Shah and Falak had previously slammed their granddaughter’s ‘ridiculous’ £75,000 rainforest birthday party – and said they weren’t invited.  

Reigniting his war of words with the boxer and his wife, Shah blasted the ‘excessive’ party the couple held for their youngest daughter Alayna’s first birthday.

He told MailOnline: ‘We were not invited to the party. Amir’s siblings and his parents were not there, which is very upsetting. But it didn’t bother him or his wife.


Looking every inch the doting father, former unified light-welterweight champion Amir gazed adoringly at his baby girl as they enjoyed a boogie on the dancefloor – but the party hasn’t gone down well with Amirs family who weren’t invited

It’s all about me: At the party, planned by Opulence Events London, guests were greeted to jungle-themed banners on arrival, which read: ‘Alayna’s Jungle’, ‘Do not feed the lions’,’Beware of the alligators’ and ‘Watch out!’. Pictured: Alanya enjoys her party

‘An awful lot of money was spent on the party and I feel it could have been better used. It seems a bit excessive to me. Every parent wants the best for their kids but what Amir has spent is quite ridiculous.

‘We knew the party was happening and are very disappointed at not being invited. This is just part of the campaign by Amir’s wife to separate him from his family and control his life.

‘But everything will blow up again in their marriage, it’s just a matter of time.’
