Pakistan’s renowned Cricketing Legend Wasim Akram finally got married with his fiancé Shaniera Thompson in Lahore last week.
Nikah ceremony (which is mandatory for Muslim marriage) took place in Lahore in a small family gathering, where Only close family members were present.
Talking about his marriage, Wasim told media:
”I married Shaniera in Lahore last week in a simple ceremony and this is the start of a new life for me, my wife and for my kids.”
Wasim’s fist wife died in 2009 due to multiple organ failure at 45 years of age. After some years, we heard that he’s going to marry Indian Actress Sushmita Sen , it didn’t just ended there as news of an affair with Humaima Malick also surfaced in Indian media. All this turned out to be a rumor when Wasim announced his engagement with Shaniera, a former public relations consultant.
Last month, he proposed his 30 year old Melbourne based Girlfriend. Shaniera then came to Pakistan earlier this month to meet Wasim Akram’s family.
From Wasim’s first marriage, he had two sons Taimur and Akbar.
Reportedly, the couple will live in Pakistan. For all those, who are wondering about her conversion, yes the woman had converted to Islam before Nikaah ceremony. Regarding this Wasim said:
“She has embraced Islam and is learning our language. She has been close to my sons and they form a very good bond.”
The grand event for this wedding will take place in September or November this year.
