Gran-Of-17 Gets Married To 24-Year-Old Man And They're Ready To Have Baby Together
| Last updated
A grandmother to 17 is ready to expand her family even further by welcoming a new baby with her 24-year-old husband.
Cheryl, 61, tied the knot with her husband Quran McCain in 2021 after first meeting him at a Dairy Queen shop in Rome, Georgia, in 2012, when he was working for Cheryl's son, Chris. Take a look at the loved up pair below:
Quran was just 15 at the time, but it wasn't until 2020 that the pair reconnected and hit it off, dating for about a year before Quran popped the question.
Following a wedding that was live-streamed to more than 20,000 people, Cheryl and Quran are looking to take the next step by having a baby.
The grandmother commented: "He’s always wanted children and I want to be the mother to his child. Of course, because of my age we'll have to get a surrogate or adopt which we're looking into."
Cheryl's seven existing children, who range in age from 29 to 41, have said they will help raise the new baby, The Mirror reports, while her grandchildren have accepted Quran into their lives by dubbing him 'pawpaw'.
The big age gap between the couple has prompted a lot of interest on TikTok, where Quran has racked up two million followers through sharing videos of himself and Cheryl.
Discussing their plans to welcome a new life into the world, Cheryl told Quran's followers the couple are 'going to have a baby this year', with Quran adding: "It's coming, 2022".
The couple are 'still looking' for the best way to have their baby, but they are reported to have already started pram shopping.
TikTok users have shared mixed comments in response to Quran's videos, but the 24-year-old insisted he and Cheryl are serious about one another as he described them as a 'team'.
"She is my wife. Till death do us part, we ain't going nowhere. Forever," he added, before plating a kiss on Cheryl's lips.
Speaking to News 24 following their wedding last year, Cheryl said she has never had a stronger connection with another man.
"We are so in sync, it's like I feel what he feels and vice versa," she said. "He is my soulmate, he genuinely makes me happy, and I make him happy. He is in tune with his emotions, which makes us so much closer, and it's what I love most about him. I said yes [to his proposal] because I felt it in my heart that there was an unbreakable connection."
Though some people are critical of the relationship, other viewers have showed their support for Cheryl and Quran and said the pair would be 'good parents'.
