I’m 61 and my husband’s 24 – trolls slam our pregnancy plans but it’s just a matter of time until we have a baby


THEY’RE planning to start a family together – despite their 37-year age gap.

And while Cheryl McCain, 61, and 24-year-old husband Quran’s pregnancy plans have seen them blasted by trolls on social media, the couple haven’t been deterred, and have now revealed they have a surrogate.

“Are y’all still having a baby?” they wrote over one TikTok video.

“She’s too old to have a baby,” was a response from trolls.

But Cheryl wrote in the caption: “We have a surrogate.”

And in another TikTok, Quran revealed that the surrogate had “come off her period”.

“We’re finally about to have our baby,” Cheryl said delightedly.

Quran urged her to calm down, saying: “She’s not ovulating yet.”

To which Cheryl said more calmly: “Our baby is coming soon.”

People were quick to weigh in on the couple’s unique situation, with one writing: “On the real I’m 45 and now a grandma I considered having a baby at 40 but it’s not fair for the child in my opinion.

“I just enjoy my grandkids.”

But someone else wrote: “Why does everyone in the comments have to be rude?

“They are happy and they should do what makes them happy. I’m excited for you guys.”

Quran met Cheryl when he was just 15, when he was working at her son Chris’ fast food restaurant; Dairy Queen in Rome, Georgia, US.

He came into where Cheryl was working as a cashier and they began dating in 2020, with Quran proposing in July 2021.

They eloped to Tennessee in September that year, with only two friends present.
