A woman who found out she was pregnant a week after her boyfriend was brutally stabbed to death, says becoming a mother has given her a 'reason to keep going'. 


Alexandra Lawlor-Khan, 19, from Watford, Hertfordshire, described the moment she found out she was expecting her boyfriend Aqeel Khan's baby as 'extremely emotional.'
The couple's son Ayden Lawlor-Khan was born in May this year - less than a year after his father died following a 3.5-inch stab wound, which pierced his lung and damaged a major artery.

Miss Lawlor-Khan, who changed her surname to honour the man she calls her 'husband', said: 'I was with Aqeel's family when I found out I was pregnant in August 2014 - seven days after he died.
'We all cried.

It was amazing to know we'd have a part of him back, but devastating to think he wouldn't be here to watch his child grow up.

Teenage sweethearts Ms Lawlor-Khan and Mr Khan first met in 2011, after Mr Khan had noticed her around and asked mutual friends to give him her number so he could get to know her better.
The pair were soon inseparable, moving in together after two years.
Ms Lawlor-Khan described Mr Khan as 'the best boyfriend ever.'
'He was always quiet at first, but I knew the real him and what was under his shell,' she said.

'He always bought me little presents and he ran me a bath everyday.
'We spoke about kids all the time. We were only young but we already knew we wanted a family together one day.'
But their dreams for the future were brutally snatched away on August 22, 2014.
Ms Lawlor-Khan, who described Mr Khan as 'the best boyfriend ever', said the pair had spoken about the future and wanted a big family together 
Mr Khan left the couple's home to go to the garage and pick up some spare parts for his car, which he was fixing up following a minor scrape the night before.
Ms Lawlor-Khan chose to stay home to look after their two dogs.
The last words Mr Khan said to her were: 'I'll be back in ten minutes.'
Then, just minutes later, a friend who had come round to drive Mr Khan to the garage burst into the house, urging Ms Lawlor-Khan to come quickly as her boyfriend had been badly hurt.
'I ran after him straight away,' she recalled.

'Just a few minutes from our front door, I found Aqueel lying on the floor, covered in blood.
'He had a pulse but he wasn't moving. It was like there was nothing left.'
Mr Khan died on the pavement outside Westfield Academy in Croxley View, Watford, from a 3.5-inch stab wound, which pierced his lung and damaged a major artery.
An ambulance was called and though doctors fought to save him they could not restart his heart and he was pronounced dead at Watford General Hospital.

Recalling the heartbreaking moment medics told her Mr Khan had not made it, Ms Lawlor-Khan said: 'I just screamed and fell back.

I was in so much shock I didn't even cry.'
Just before Mr Khan died, Ms Lawlor-Khan mentioned her period was late.
'When I told him, he seemed so excited,' she said.

'Although we were young, children were always part of our plan.'
But, in the chaos of his death, she did not take a test - which turned out to be positive - until a week later.
In a remarkable display of strength, she attended the trial in February of the 17-year-old accused of Mr Khan's murder whilst seven months pregnant.

But the youth, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was acquitted at Luton Crown Court.
Speaking after the trial, which Ms Lawlor-Khan described as 'hell,' she said: 'To go through that - losing him and the verdict - was the worst ever.

We lived together, we spent every day together, we had all these plans.
'He left that day and said he would be home in 10 minutes and my life completely changed. I'm on my own.'
Details surrounding Mr Khan's death are unclear but Ms Lawlor-Khan said that a fight had broken out near the couple's home and he had stepped in as peacemaker, trying to protect a friend.
'Aqeel always wanted a little boy,' she said.

'Now he won't get to meet his child - all because that day he was trying to stop anyone getting hurt.
'All through his life, he helped anyone. Even just in the street if someone was in trouble he would go over and help them.
I tell Ayden about his dad every day, and I always show him pictures and videos. I love being a mum. It's given me a reason to keep going.'
