Everyone got to see the softer side to boxer Amir Khan, as he went shopping for baby clothes with wife Faryal Makhdoom to luxury children’s shop, Childsplay Clothing, in Clements Road, Ilford.

The couple were browsing for their three-month-old daughter Lamaisah before Amir flies out to Las Vegas to be ringside for the world title re-match fight between Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana.
