National goalkeeper Khairul Fahmi Che Mat, also known as Apek, has been reported by Kosmo! to marry Nur Eilunie Natasha Nazri, 21, this coming December.

Apek’s father, Che Mat Hussain said the families of the couple were expected to hold the wedding either on Dec 28 or in January.

Mat Hussain was also reported as saying that the reception and akad nikah (solemnisation) would be performed in a simple ceremony on the big day.

Khairul Fahmi admitted to the relationship early last month after he met Nur Eilunie, better known as Leuniey, while filming a commercial for SimplySiti cosmetics.

Nur Eilunie remained tight-lipped about their relationship. She held a press conference on Feb 6 denying that she was in an intimate relationship with Khairul Fahmi.
