American grandmother, Cheryl McGregor, 61, who recently tied the knot with her lover, 24, Quran McCain, has announced that they plan to have a baby through surrogacy.
According to Cheryl McGregor, they decided to have a surrogate pregnancy after attempts to conceive naturally were abortive.
“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 it’s 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”, the husband, Quran McCain said.
Cheryl already had seven children and 17 grandchildren, but she and her husband, 24, said they believe they deserve to have children of their own.
Cheryl’s daughters were originally thought to be carriers of the couple’s baby, but both underwent hysterectomies and were therefore unsuitable.
Cheryl noted that she may not be around for long with her children due to her age, but she trusts her husband to raise them well.
In her words,
“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.”
The couple first went viral after they shared video clips of themselves on TikTok. The 61-year-old grandma from Rome, Georgia, first met Quran McCain in 2012, while they were both working at the American fast-food chain Dairy Queen.
