Details emerge on Egyptian wife who attended husband’s second wedding

Published: Updated:

Motaz Hilal, the groom who recently sparked controversy in Egypt after photos of his first wife showed her attending his wedding to his second wife, said that he and his first wife have four children.

Hilal told the host of Dream television channel's "Kalam Tani" program that he married another woman because he wants to expand his family and have more children since he does not have any siblings.

He also said that his first wife, whom he identified as Umm Marwan, had initially rejected his decision to marry a second woman but he convinced her to change his mind.

He also voiced his appreciation to her and said: “I will never find someone like Umm Marwan in the entire world.”
