Amir Khan says he found out about Faryal's pregnancy through social media

There seems to be no end to the Amir-Faryal saga.

Here's what you need to know of the latest development:

1) Amir Khan claims Faryal did not tell him about her second pregnancy

Weeks after Faryal Makhdoom announced that she's expecting her second child, Amir Khan posted a [Snapchat video]1] saying he found out about the pregnancy through social media.

"I hear she's just announced that she's pregnant. She didn't tell me, I had to read it on social media," he said.

He also seemed doubtful of Faryal's pregnancy claims: "I don't know if it's true whether she's pregnant or not, but time will tell."

2) Amir has filed for divorce

The first thing Amir addressed in his Snapchat is that he has gone ahead with the divorce regardless of the pregnancy.

"So Faryal and I are not together, I have filed for divorce."

The estranged couple have mutually decided that the divorce proceedings will go ahead as planned. "We both think it's not healthy to be together because it's not healthy for the kids and I don't want my child to see us fighting and filing for custody - but we are officially not together."

3) Amir will support Faryal and help raise their kids together

Amir vowed to help support Faryal throughout and the two plan to work together to raise their children.

"In the meantime, I’m there for Lamaisah. Lamaisah is everything to me," the boxer said of his 3-year-old firstborn. "I'm always going to be there for my kids. We're [him and Faryal] not together, but my kids are everything to me."

He added, "Obviously, if there's another kid I'm going to show my support and be there for Faryal."

It seems like the two have mended their ways as last month, reportedly, Faryal had said she does not need Amir's help in raising the second child: "I don't need his help."

According to The Sun's source, "Faryal doesn’t want anything more from Amir now. They're back on speaking terms, trying to keep everything ­civilised for the sake of their daughter and extended families, but the relationship is finished.

"She has told him she will happily bring up their new child without his support, and the divorce is going ahead. She's a strong woman — and the pregnancy isn't going to change that."
