We all love to treat our precious little ones, especially when their birthdays come around, but British boxer Amir Khan and his wife Faryal have raised eyebrows this week for shelling out a rather whopping sum on their daughter’s party.
According to an exclusive feature by Hello! magazine, Khan and his wife spent £100,000 on little Lamaisah’s second birthday party.
It seems no expense was spared for the celebrations, with Faryal dedicating three months to planning the special festivities.
Held in Bolton Wanderers Football Club, the party – which hosted 250 guests – featured a carousel as well as a giant cake and a host of beloved characters including Peppa Pig.
In an accompanying interview, Amir praised his wife for the ‘amazing’ job she did on their daughter’s birthday celebrations.
“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,” he said.
Faryal, meanwhile, said she will be waiting for Lamaisah’s 16th birthday before getting the party-planning diary out again.
As you can imagine, social media users have not held back with their opinions on the Khans’ birthday celebrations, with many condemning the proud parents for ‘wasting’ their money.

“The radio tells me Amir Khan spent £100k on his daughter's 2nd birthday party. Surely it's not only me who finds that revolting?” tweeted one person.
Another was a tad more reserved on the subject, however, tweeting: “Boxer Amir Khan spent £100,000 on his daughter’s 2nd birthday party. He can afford it, so is it justified?”
