In a delightful turn of events, a charming TikTok duo, known not only for their 37-year age gap but also their penchant for defying the haters, have announced their intentions to expand their family. Quran McCain, 25, and Cheryl McGregor, 62, tied the knot back in September 2021, and have since been dancing their way into the hearts of millions through quirky lip-syncing videos and glimpses into their unconventional love story.
Like a fine wine, their love only gets better with age, as they navigate the turbulent waters of internet fame and snarky comments about their May-December romance. A year into their marriage, the couple seems unshakable in their commitment, even sharing their dreams of raising children together.
During a recent appearance on the UK breakfast show This Morning, Cheryl and Quran talked about their plans for the future, which included a dose of love and laughter. Cheryl, with the energy of someone half her age, dismissed any naysayers questioning her ability to raise a child, exclaiming, “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.”
Though biology has put a damper on Cheryl’s chances of conceiving, the couple is exploring the world of surrogacy and even considering adoption. It’s a journey they will embark upon with their 4 million TikTok followers in tow.
Of course, love is never without its challenges. The couple’s own families have been hesitant to embrace their unconventional relationship. As Cheryl explained, “It’s been a battle with them, us trying to prove to them that it wasn’t a joke… We can’t help who our hearts fall in love with.”
Despite the obstacles, Quran and Cheryl remain steadfast in their love and determination to live their best lives. “We are just going to keep living our lives because we are happy… this is a happy healthy marriage, we are looking to start our family and that’s all we got,” said Quran.
In unison, Cheryl agreed, “Absolutely, it’s us against the world.”
The two first crossed paths in 2012 while working together at a Dairy Queen, with Quran being just 15 at the time. Their love story didn’t begin until years later, after a chance encounter in 2020 at a convenience store where Cheryl was working. It wasn’t long before Quran got down on one knee and proposed, sealing the deal with a romantic livestreamed event for their 20,000 eager followers.
As the couple embarks on this new chapter, we can only imagine the hilarity and heartwarming moments that await them—and their many TikTok followers.
