Gran eager to have baby with 25-year-old husband has spoken to three surrogates

Gran eager to have baby with 25-year-old husband has spoken to three surrogates

Plans are well underway for Quran and Cheryl McGregor to have their first baby.

A grandmother and her husband are planning to have a baby together and they’ve already spoken to three surrogates.

Cheryl McGregor, 62, and her beau Quran McCain, 25, are the viral TikTok couple who made headlines because of their unlikely romance and 37-year age difference.

In fact, Cheryl clapped back at those who think she’s too old to have another baby by stating she has more energy than most young folks.

Speaking from Atlanta, the couple were interviewed by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on This Morning on Tuesday (7 March) where they confirmed their family plans.

“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 is a grandmother and has seven children.

The loved-up pair are not planning to let their ages stop them from starting a family together as they also confirmed they would consider adoption. Regarding pregnancy, 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."

Cheryl is already a mum to seven children from another relationship.

The couple have over three million followers on TikTok and they often face comments from stunned social media users who think their relationship is a joke. This disbelief is also felt from their families who also can’t believe it but Cheryl said you can’t help who you fall in love with.

The couple want a baby.

“It's been a battle with them, us trying to prove to them that it wasn’t a joke,” she shared. “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 couple met over a decade ago in 2012 when they were both employed at the fast food restaurant and ice cream hub Dairy Queen, when Quran was only 15 years old.

They lost contact and reconnected in 2020 which is when their romance blossomed. Quran, who works as a caretaker, saw Cheryl working as a cashier at a convenience store.

They tied the knot in 2021 after Quran popped the question during a TikTok live broadcast which streamed to 20,000 viewers.

The ceremony itself was live-streamed and they’ve lived happily ever after since.
