QURAN McCain, 24, and his wife, Cheryl McGregor, 61, from Rome, Georgia, first met when he was just 15.

“We got married in September 2021, and it’s been a few months since we are ready to start a family,” says Quran. “Cheryl is 61 and has seven children and seventeen grandchildren already but we feel we deserve children of our own. “We have tried for children but with age, we feel surrogacy or adoption would be a better option. “We prefer surrogacy. However, we have seen a lot of people embroiled in legal complications far after the child is born.
“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 he 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.”

Quran and Cheryl are prepared for an unconventional parenting style, with Cheryl being much older.
“We understand that I may not be there for as long as Quran is but I have faith in him,” says Cheryl. “If I am not here, he can do it. He’s gonna be a great father, he’s a responsible adult. “I had every bit of faith that he could raise our child and do it very well.
“Our family is also very supportive of our decision to have children, at first they were hesitant for the same reasons.”
“However, now five of my children have come to accept the idea, and my mother-in-law and I make videos together.”
After they first met, the pair lost contact for a while but reconnected on November 4, 2020, when caretaker Quran saw mom-of-seven Cheryl working as a cashier at a convenience store.

Sparks flew between the pair instantly and they started dating and posting videos of themselves on TikTok.
Grandmother of 17, Cheryl and Quran claim that, despite their age difference, their sex life is fantastic and they have great chemistry.
The couple ended up getting married in an intimate wedding live-streamed and viewed by thousands of their TikTok fans in September 2021. Cheryl and Quran get a lot of hate on social media and it has increased a lot more since they were featured in previous news articles.
“People on social media have a lot of hate for us, they say I’m dating my grandmother,” says Quran.
“I am not, she is younger than my grandmother, we are no different from any other couple, love is love.
“We get a lot of hate but it doesn’t phase us. At the end of the day, we still got each other and that’s all that matters.
“No matter what they say or do, it can hurt us. We know the stuff that they say isn’t true and they believe it, we feel sorry for them.
“We’re happy and no matter what they say we’re not going to deflect on that.”
