In the quaint town of Rome, Georgia, a couple defied conventions and stood as a testament to love transcending age, race, and societal expectations. Cheryl McGregor, a 62-year-old woman, and her husband, 25-year-old Quran McCain, eagerly awaited the arrival of their first child together, despite the challenges they faced.

In biblical times, some women were able to conceive well into their later years, with Abraham and his wife Sarah being a prime examples. Cheryl, a mother of seven children, sought to follow in their footsteps by having her eighth child through surrogacy with her much younger husband, Quran.

The couple’s story caught the attention of the British talk show This Morning, where Cheryl shared her desire to expand her already large family with her new husband. Although they found it challenging to secure the right surrogate for their baby, the couple faced an even more significant hurdle in gaining the approval of their family and friends.

Cheryl and Quran‘s unconventional relationship, their age difference, and the fact that they were an interracial couple in a southern state with a history of racism attracted criticism and skepticism.

As Cheryl told the Daily Mail, “It’s 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.”

Despite the opposition, Cheryl and Quran remained steadfast in their love and commitment to one another. They gained the support of two of Cheryl’s children, who stood by them through thick and thin. The couple acknowledged that it took time for these children to accept Quran, but they eventually recognized the genuine love and affection between their mother and her young husband.

As they worked to bring their first child together into the world, Cheryl and Quran turned to the media to raise awareness and garner support for their unique situation. They made appearances on national talk shows, while Quran actively engaged with his more than twenty thousand followers on TikTok.

However, the increased media attention began to strain their relationship. But the couple, confident in their love and commitment to one another, believed they could weather any storm that came their way.

“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,” Quran declared.
