63-year-old grandmother and her 26-year-old husband give major baby update following announcement of first child

Cheryl McCain, 63, and her 26-year-old husband Quran McCain are capturing hearts on social media after sharing exciting news about expecting a baby. Despite facing backlash for their significant age difference, the couple has consistently demonstrated that age is merely a numeric value. They first crossed paths when Quran was just 15, working together at Dairy Queen, though they affirm there were no romantic undertones at the time. Their romantic connection sparked years later, serendipitously meeting again at a gas station.

Followers of Cheryl and Quran have often come to their defense, particularly following their recent announcement about adding a new member to their family. Cheryl, a resident of Rome, Georgia, is not new to motherhood with seven children and 17 grandchildren. Yet, she and Quran, who married, decided to expand their family together. They turned to their TikTok community to share the journey, announcing in May that they had secured a surrogate to have their child.

On July 8, the couple shared a delightful moment from their gender reveal party on TikTok. The event included a playful prank by their friends who initially had them pop a balloon that released both blue and pink confetti, keeping the suspense alive. The real reveal happened outside with the couple igniting smoke cannons that enveloped them in pink smoke, indicating they were expecting a girl. The joy was unmistakable as they embraced, celebrating the news.
