5 things we know about Khabib’s wife Mrs. Nurmagomedova
Since Khabib Nurmagomedov became one of the most popular martial artists worldwide, won the UFC lightweight title, and beat the MMA superstar Conor McGregor, there is been a lot of rumors and misinformation about Khabib. Specifically about his personal life, religion, and his family.
In this post, we would like to share with you some true facts about Khabib’s wife, Mrs. Patimat Nurmagomedova, which we found from multiple interviews given by Khabib himself as well as his father Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov to the Russian media. You will also find out info about Khabib’s siblings – his brother Magomed and his sister Aminat.
This is Khabib Nurmagomedov’s famous papakha hat. You can buy an awesome papakha wig just like Khabib’s on the picture above on Amazon here and be the star at the bar/party watching fights in this authentic Caucasian papakha made from 100% sheep wool.
1. We don’t know what Mrs. Nurmagomedova looks like.
Pictures of Khabib and his wife with a covered face from the wedding are the only real pictures of them. The rest of the pictures you might have seen on the internet are either fake or they were taken with his fans or friends.
For example, this pretty lady in the picture above is not Nurmagomedov’s wife. Her name is Olga Buzova and she is a popular Russian pop artist and TV host. They took this picture with Khabib at one of the public events in Russia.
The face of Khabib’s wife was never shown to the public and is very strictly protected. Khabib himself never talks or posts pictures of his wife or his kids on social media or elsewhere.
Patimat Nurmagomedova lives with Khabib in Dagestan and she is a full-time stay-at-home mom.
2. Khabib and his wife got married in 2013 at home in Dagestan.
They got married in Kirovaul village near Makhachkala where Nurmagomedov’s live.
It was a huge wedding celebrated by the whole village; according to Khabib’s father, throughout the day to the wedding came almost 4000 people. The wedding venue had a capacity of 1200 people and they had to switch guests 3 times to let everyone in. The cost of such a big wedding was only about 700,000 rubles (a little bit over $10k) and half of it was paid for by family friends.
3. Khabib and his wife have three kids.
As of 2021, Khabib has three kids – a girl (was born in June 2015) and a boy (born in December 2017). His daughter’s name is Fatima Nurmagomedova; a son was named after Khabib’s great-grandfather – Magomed Nurmagomedov.
On August 31, 2019, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov spoke to the Russian media that Khabib and his wife are expecting their third child. Khabib became a father for the third time on December 22, 2019. They named their newborn son Husayn Nurmagomedov after one of his uncles.
4. Khabib’s wife is his distant relative.
Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, Khabib’s father, in one of the interviews with the Russian newspaper Sport-Express, mentioned that Khabib’s wife is his distant relative and she actually had last name Nurmagomedova even before she married Khabib.
A village where Khabib and Patimat grow up (Sildi village) is very small and pretty much everyone out there is somehow relative to one another.
5. Khabib could have more than one wife in the future.
Per Muslim traditions, men are allowed to have up to 4 wives. “The Eagle” has one wife at the moment but according to Abdulmanap, all men in their family get another wife when they are in their 50’s or 60’s. Khabib’s grandfather had 2 wives, Khabib’s father had 2 wives as well.
- Brother – Magomed.
Khabib has an older brother Magomed who is 2 years older than him. Like everyone in the family, Magomed Nurmagomedov wrestled from an early age but he had to stop training in 2009-2010 because of a knee injury. Magomed never competed in MMA.
- Sister – Aminat.
Khabib has a younger sister, Aminat (she is born in 1990). We know very little about her. She teaches English at one of the local schools in Dagestan.
Once again, we don’t really have much information about Khabib’s wife and his personal life because it is very strictly protected but it is what we know as a fact from the words of his close friends and family members.
