Who Is Imran Khans New Wife Everything You Need To Know About Reham Khan
Cricket legend Imran Khan reportedly tied the knot over the weekend to a BBC weather girl.
The news has been met by a mixed response in Pakistan – reportedly because the conservative Islamic country has questioned the fact she is divorced and has at times worn immodest clothes.
Others love the fact she is a talented broadcast journalist and think there’s no better woman for Imran, who is now a politician.
But what else is known about the intelligent beauty who has divided a country?
Has Imran Khan secretly married Reham?
Name Reham Khan
Nationality Bristish Pakistani
Profession Broadcast journalist
Birth place The Sahara
The beginnings of her careers
Reham could have had a very different career path as her first degree was in education and she even started a post graduate in sociology before finding her chosen career – journalism.
Reham started her first job while still studying for her post graduate diploma in Journalism.
She was working as a presenter and producer for Legal TV- a job she would drive two hours to after classes.
After a year she moved to Worcestershire, which is when she started working for Sunshine Radio Hereford and Worcester.
This was a multiple faceted role which saw her reading the news and sport in the morning and presenting on TV in the evening.
She then moved to the BBC where she worked as a weather girl and as a presenter on news show South Today.

Moving to Pakistan
She currently works at AAJ TV – a 24 hour Pakistani news television channel.
Her career in Pakistan began in January 2013 – she started by covering the historical 2013 Pakistani General Elections which helped cement her place on the map.
Speaking about her career choice, she said: “From a family of doctors and solicitors I decided not to follow the herd but follow my heart instead.”
Political reporting in Pakistan
When she is not working she loves singing and dancing. She is also a big fan of chocolate.
She said: “I am obsessed and am always trying new products as well as coming up with decadent dessert ideas.”
Reham is also very fond of travelling – saying: “I was born in the middle of the Sahara desert while my parents were there and that”s probably why I have a bedouin spirit!”
