Cheryl McGregor, 61 have finally tied the knot with her young lover, Quran McCain, 24 from Rome, Georgia in holy matrimony.
Naija News understands that Quran McCain, 24, Cheryl McGregor, 61, engagement went viral after a video of them dancing together surfaced on social media.
The couple got married on September 3, streaming their wedding on TikTok for their followers to watch.
Cheryl, a grandma-of-17, has children who are older than Quran. Yet, Quran says the age difference doesn’t get to him “because Cheryl has a very young spirit, soul and heart”.
Cheryl also admitted she does get upset by the hateful comments posted online where she proudly shares videos of their lives but does her best to ignore them.
The couple first met when they worked at the fast-food restaurant Dairy Queen in 2012 in Rome, Georgia.
Cheryl’s son Chris was Quran’s manager, and she would visit his workplace to check on him or get a meal, but Quran was only 15 at the time so there was no romantic involvement.
“We didn’t think much of each other – she drove a baby blue Carrera and that’s the only reason I noticed her!” Quran said. He eventually left his job and the pair lost contact, until November 4 last year, when Quran went to the convenience store where Cheryl was working as a cashier.
Quran said: “I used to see her every day, she would always be so happy, but today she was sad and I asked her what was wrong and she was crying.”
