BOLTON boxer Amir Khan and his wife are expecting a baby girl.

Fashion fan Faryal Makhdoom announced the gender in an Instagram video, showing designer goodies for the unborn tot including Armani booties and Dolce and Gabbana cardigans.

Faryal wrote: “Proud to announce I’m having a little princess. She’s going to be a fashionista! #MyLittle DesignerBaby shopping for my life”.

In an interview with The Bolton News at the town’s Christmas lights switch-on in November, the 27-year-old boxer told of his desire for a son.

He said: “I want a boy. It’s always good to have a boy.

“Obviously, I’m not going to want him to be a boxer.

“It’s a tough sport, I do a hard sport and I know how hard it is when I’m fighting — how tough boxing is.”

Earlier this week, Faryal hinted at plans for another child when she wrote on Twitter: “I really hope to have a son like my husband one day. Truly an inspiration with the biggest heart ever. May Allah shower his blessings on you” .
