Man, 24, Who Married Grandma-of-17 Reveals They Want Their First Baby Together
| Last updated
The age gap couple who became TikTok sensations have announced that they want a baby together through surrogacy.
Quran had been at a fast-food restaurant managed by Cheryl’s son Chris, however, romantic feelings didn't blossom until much later.
Since marrying in autumn last year, the couple - who have a 37-year age gap - are now looking to start a family.
Quran said: “We got married in September 2021, and it’s been a few months since we are ready to start a family.
“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 the baby would know I have half black and half white parents 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.”
Cheryl said: “We understand that I may not be there for as long as Quran is but I have faith in him.
“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.”
