On December 17, 2013, Magi got married to Salah in his hometown, Nagrig, in Egypt. Although the ceremony was traditional, it was certainly not less than a lavish affair. The whole village of Nagrig was invited to the wedding. Salah visits his hometown every Ramadan. He also shares his wealth with the residents of his hometown. Thus, he wanted every resident of his village to participate in his big day. Many popular celebrities, such as Egyptian singer and actor Hamada Hilal, were on the guest list. Egyptian singers Albasit Hamouda and Sa’ad Al Sughayar performed at the wedding. Magi looked adorable in her white wedding dress. The people of Nagrig blessed the couple, and according to Nagrig traditional customs, they gifted them practical gifts that would help them set up their life after marriage.
Magi and Salah moved to Merseyside, a metropolitan county in North West England, after marriage. In 2014, Magi gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Makka. She was born at the 'Westminster Hospital,' London. Makka was named after the Muslim holy city of Mecca. Magi and Salah decided to alter the spelling of her name to avoid confusion with the 'Mecca Casino,' since gambling is not allowed in Islam.
