A 62-year-old grandmother and her husband, 25, revealed they’re planning to have their first child together and have spoken to three surrogates already.
Quran McCain and his wife Cheryl McGregor, both from Rome, Georgia, admitted on This Morning that they would also consider adoption.
Mother-of-seven from another relationship Cheryl, hit back at trolls who say she is too old to take care of baby.
Speaking via video line, from Atlanta, she said: ‘They said I guess just because of my age I can’t take care of a baby, what? I have got more energy than half of these kids that are taking care of babies now and I don’t see it as a problem.
Cheryl said: ‘No I can not have a baby myself but we have done the surrogacy thing where we already had three surrogates and right now we are looking for another one and also maybe adoption.’
The couple, who have over three million followers on TikTok, revealed it’s ‘been a battle’ with their families who think their relationship is a joke.
Cheryl said: ‘Its been a battle with them, us trying to prove to them that it wasn’t a joke. Out of my seven children they were saying he was using me, we weren’t using each other, we can’t help who our hearts fall in love with.
‘So it’s been a battle, out of seven of my children I really have two but one who really stands by us through everything and it took a while to come to that conclusion that they like him.’
The loved up couple will appear on Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over USA which is available to stream on the BBC iPlayer.
The pair first met in 2012 while they were both working in the fast food chain Dairy Queen, when Quran was just 15 years old.
But romantic feelings didn’t blossom until much later. They lost contact but reconnected in 2020 when caretaker Quran saw Cheryl working as a cashier at a convenience store.
Sparks instantly flew between the pair and they started dating. They got married in 2021 after Quran proposed on a live stream to 20,000 people.
Soon after the couple started dating, they began posting videos of themselves on TikTok and they have now become viral sensations on the platform because of their nearly four-decade age difference.
Their intimate wedding was actually live-streamed on the app and viewed by thousands of their fans.
The pair also set up an Only Fans account for their saucier content.
Cheryl and Quran get a lot of hate on social media due to their unconventional relationship – but that doesn’t phase them.
After host Holly Willoughby asked what do they say to the haters who think their relationship is scam.
Quran said: ‘We are just going to keep living our lives because we are happy, we are very much happy, this is a happy healthy marriage, we are looking to start our family and that’s all we got.’
Cheryl added: ‘Absolutely it’s us against the world.’
In a previous interview, Quran explained that Cheryl ‘has a very young spirit, soul and heart.’
‘I think the biggest misconception is that I’m using her or waiting to be put in the will,’ he said.
‘We connected on a spiritual level. No matter the situation we just have a certain vibe that connects anytime we are around each other.’
Cheryl added: ‘It’s different, it’s amazing, he’s very compassionate to me and I think it’s because he’s a younger man.
‘I couldn’t have that with anybody else, he’s very emotional and that’s something I’ve never dealt with – they were all angry and he’s emotional in a good way because he shows me he really cares.
‘There’s just something between him and I that I never thought we would be together like this, he’s just an amazing person.
‘There’s a different type of chemistry with him even though he’s younger, we have a lot of chemistry because of the things we’ve been through and it pulls us closer together.’
As for their sex life, Quran gushed: ‘It gets better and better every time. It’s pretty normal, it’s not out of the ordinary, but to me it’s amazing.
‘She knows what she’s doing – that’s the best part!’
It comes after the pair tried to get pregnant on their own but due to Cheryl’s age, they decided to turn to surrogacy or adoption.
‘We prefer surrogacy, however, we have seen a lot of people embroiled in legal complications far after the child is born,’ Quran previously told Jam Press.
‘We are looking for a nice surrogate who is willing to sign a contract to have nothing to do with the child after its born.
‘We don’t want people trying to have a baby for us for financial gain, we are not that financially inclined ourselves.
‘With adoption, we are looking for a biracial baby so the baby would know, “I have half black and half white parents,” so he [or she] would feel that we are his true parents.
‘Both of Cheryl’s daughters had hysterectomies in the last few years otherwise they would have been the best option for being as close to a biological child as possible.’
