Grandmother, 63, and 26-year-old husband give worrying baby update after announcing first child

Grandmother, 63, and 26-year-old husband give worrying baby update after announcing first child

Cheryl McCain’s husband, Quran, broke down in a video as he gave an update about their baby

Earlier this year, grandmother Cheryl McCain and her 26-year-old husband Quran were delighted to share that they were going to start a family.

Cheryl is 63 and has 18 grandchildren, but it's her relationship with husband Quran that has thrust her into the social media spotlight.

When Quran was 23 years old, after weeks of spending time together, he confessed his feelings and they began dating in April 2021.

The couple went on to tie the knot in September that year before creating joint online accounts to document their lives together - where they have faced significant criticism online.

However, they announced that they were planning to take the next step in becoming parents.

And in May of this year, they announced they had found a surrogate and are expecting a baby of their own, drawing a mixed reaction from people on TikTok.

But the couple remained determined to start their family and have spoken out about the happiness it has brought them.

Cheryl said: "It was an amazing feeling to find out we were going to have a baby. We get to start our own family. I am the happiest now than I have ever been before.

"It will make our family so much happier as we will love the baby unconditionally."

Quran added: "I cried with tears of joy when I found out. This will be my very first child. I have never felt love like this apart from the time I got married to Cheryl."

However, in a recent video, Quran broke down in tears and told followers he had been ‘going through hell’.

He said: “I don’t know how to feel, for the last two weeks I’ve been going through hell. Like, literal hell. All I want is a f***ing family and a healthy baby.

“It started on Father’s Day, woke up to a text at six in the morning saying ‘I don’t wanna do this anymore.’

"I'm stressed, I'm tired. Life has been whopping my a**. I've been there for this surrogate for the whole nine yards and I'm battling things that I can't even battle myself alone."

Quran also explained that the surrogate’s mother has come into the picture and claimed the couple are doing it all for 'likes and views'.

In a follow-up video, the pair claimed that the surrogate has since contacted them and told them she is keeping the baby, however, they said they didn't know much more than that.

Because of this, Quran said they'd 'have to delay the gender reveal', but that they were still 'going through this surrogacy journey together'.

"It's in God's hands, if he wants to deliver us a healthy baby then it'll come healthy." he said.

The American Surrogacy website states there are no federal surrogacy laws in the US, and any surrogacy arrangements ‘will depend on what kinds of processes are allowable in your state’.
