Boxer Amir Khan admits that his wife Faryal Makhdoom Khan spent £100,000 on their beloved daughter Lamaisah’s second birthday party.
The celebration consisted of 250 guests which took Mrs Khan three months to organise and featured Disney princesses, Peppa Pig and a real-life ballerina.
The party took place in the home of Khan’s adored Bolton Wanderers football club, and also featured a huge cake and a carousel.
Khan spoke about his daughter’s big day: “When I walked in, the first thing I said was, ‘Wow!’ My wife did an amazing job.
“I was busy training when she was planning this, but every day I was getting crazy bills and thinking, what’s this for?
“Every penny spent on my daughter is worth it, though. After all, all this hard work I do is for her, for my kid.”
Mrs Khan said: “I wanted it to be something really grand. Now I’m not doing anything until she’s 16.”
The 24-year-old also said that she is happier after some adjustment to the UK after the couple’s wedding in 2013.
She said: “I had a rough patch at the beginning when I got married to Amir.
“But as I’ve lived with him, he’s showed me a lot of things I didn’t know about him.
“He is such a good guy, such a kind-hearted person. He’s the type of guy that would give up things for his own happiness to make his wife and child happy.”
She added: “Now we’re at a stage in our marriage where we’re the happiest ever.
“I’ve never seen this side of him. He comes home early – before he used to be out with his friends. But now he’s just like, ‘My wife, my child and home’.
“I have to say to him, ‘Can you please go out!’ It’s great for him and for us. He’s changed, being a father, and I’ve changed being a mother. My life is all about my kid.”
Khan has involved himself in various aid ventures, including giving his time in aid of refugees.
The Bolton-born boxer plans to become a full-time charity worker with the Amir Khan Foundation, when he retires from sport in a few years.
