Good news about mar­riage com­ing soon: Im­ran Khan

The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

IS­LAM­ABAD: Days after the Bri­tish press broke the news of Pak­istan Tehreek-i-In­saf (PTI) Chair­man Im­ran Khan's al­leged mar­riage to broad­cast jour­nal­ist Re­ham Khan, the for­mer crick­eter hinted that an of­fi­cial an­nounce­ment is in the off­ing. "Mar­riage is not a crime," Im­ran said at a press con­fer­ence in Is­lam­abad after his re­turn from London to­day.

Ear­lier: Wed­ding spec­u­la­tion: ' Im­ran fo­cused on pol­i­tics' "When you have chil­dren from your first mar­riage, they are the first pri­or­ity," he added, ex­plain­ing that it was im­por­tant for him to in­form his sons first. "They are first af­fected by the di­vorce and then they are af­fected by another mar­riage. For 10 years I did not even think about get­ting mar­ried again be­cause I did not want to hurt my chil­dren.

Un­til I spoke to my chil­dren I did not want to make any state­ments about my mar­riage." "I got the chance to meet my chil­dren… I will tell you the good news this week." Im­ran did not an­nounce a name dur­ing the press con­fer­ence.

A re­port pub­lished in Dai­ly­Mail to­day said Im­ran Khan con­firmed last night that he has se­cretly mar­ried for­mer BBC weather girl Re­ham Khan days after his fam­ily said he had de­nied it. The re­port claimed that the 62-year-old politi­cian, who di­vorced Jemima Gold­smith in 2004, has wed 41-year-old di­vorced mother-of-three Re­ham Khan, who is cur­rently work­ing at me­dia news. On New Year's Eve, Mr Khan said ru­mours of mar­riage were 'greatly ex­ag­ger­ated' and his sis­ter Aleema said the fam­ily chal­lenged him 'a few days ago' over the news and he de­nied it. Speak­ing to re­porters at Heathrow air­port last night be­fore board­ing a flight, Khan is re­ported to have said: "I am go­ing to Pak­istan to share good news about my mar­riage with the na­tion. I have noth­ing to hide."
