A grandma and her toy boy lover have defied the haters and got engaged – despite a 37-year age gap.
Quran McCain, now 24, and his fiancée, Cheryl McGregor, 61, from Rome, Georgia, first met when he was just 15, but insist there was no romantic feelings between them until last year.
Despite him being younger than one of her own kids, they both say their sex life is fantastic and they have great chemistry.
The grandma-of-17 said she said does get upset by the hateful comments posted online where she proudly shares videos of their lives, but does her best to ignore them.
Quran McCain, now 24, and his fiancée, Cheryl McGregor, 61, from Rome, Georgia, first met when he was just 15, but insist there was no romantic feelings between them until last year. The couple are now engaged after a year of dating
The couple post videos on TikTok of them dancing together and open up about their non-conventional relationship. However, with every viral clip comes a slew of nasty trolls criticising Cheryl for her facial wrinkles and looking like her beau’s ‘great-grandmother’
The brave pair even set up an Only Fans account for their saucier content.
Quran said: ‘Even though it is a age gap we never think of it because Cheryl has a very young spirit, soul and heart.
‘I think the biggest misconception is that I’m using her or waiting to be put in the will.’
Cheryl said: ‘It’s different, it’s amazing, he’s very compassionate to me and I think it’s because he’s a younger man.
Quran McCain, 24, who is now engaged to Cheryl McGregor, 61, met when he was just 15 and working at a Dairy Queen where her son was his manager. Cheryl has a child older than her fiancée and she is only six years younger than Quran’s grandmother
‘I couldn’t have that with anybody else, he’s very emotional and that’s something I’ve never dealt with – they were all angry and he’s emotional in a good way because he shows me he really cares.’
His TikTok account, @ttvleolove-3, has a following of over 826,000 and nearly 13 million likes.
The couple first met when they worked at fast food restaurant Dairy Queen in 2012 in Rome, Georgia.
Cheryl’s son Chris was his 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!’ he 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.’
Cashier Cheryl was upset she had posted a video of her dancing on her TikTok and was receiving hate comments, and Quran helped comfort her.
They stayed in touch, and even made some videos of them dancing together which went viral and brought in 1.3 million likes.
The couple got closer and eventually their relationship blossomed into a romantic one.
‘We connected on a spiritual level’ said carer Quran.
‘No matter the situation we just have a certain vibe that connects anytime we are around each other.
‘We went on a date and I told her feel like I’m catching feelings.
‘She said she had too, but just didn’t think we should cross that line because friends don’t always stay friends when they date.’
Despite initially trying to keep things platonic, the non-traditional lovebirds couldn’t deny their feelings any longer and started an intimate relationship.
Cheryl said: ‘There’s just something between him and I that I never thought we would be together like this, he’s just an amazing person.
‘There’s a different type of chemistry with him even though he’s younger, we have a lot of chemistry because of the things we’ve been through and it pulls us closer together.’
Both Quran and Cheryl describe their sex life as ‘amazing’.
Quran said: ‘It gets better and better every time,
‘It’s pretty normal, it’s not out of the ordinary, but to me it’s amazing.
‘She knows what she’s doing – that’s the best part!’
Cheryl is only six years younger than Quran’s grandmother and eight years younger than his grandfather.
Her youngest daughter is three years older than him at 29.
Quran said: ‘Nobody was accepting, everyone thought we were joking or thought it was all games.
‘Some of her seven kids turned on her due to her dating a younger black man.
‘She was very hurt. It hurt her because she raised them to not be like that..’
But Quran insists his family were accepting as they could see how happy they were together.
Grandmother-of-17 Cheryl McGregor, 61, admits she’s had lots of hateful comments online about her realtionship, and said that it makes her cry because the abuse ‘gets so terrible’
Social media was a different story – Cheryl got so much hate on her TikTok account that she was banned from the platform.
Quran said: ‘We had to create her two more accounts just to keep dancing,
‘Every day some comes for her appearance, they call her ‘zombie’, ‘the walking dead’ or ‘crypt killer’.
‘Hateful things like ‘why did you dig her up’ or ‘take her back to the nursing home’, the hate on that app is unreal.’
Thousands of commenters refer to Cheryl as his ‘grandma’ or say that their unusual relationship is illegal, constantly reminding them of the 37-year age gap.
Cheryl said: ‘Sometimes it makes me cry because it gets so terrible.
‘It also has an impact on my life, I have been building myself up for a long time and being on TikTok its destroyed all that and I’m constantly trying to pull that self esteem back up and it’s very very hard.’
Quran said: ‘Some of the things they said would really bother Cheryl but now she has me, I’ll go to war for her, that’s my queen.
‘Together we have over 700,000 accounts blocked just from the hate.
‘To get past it I tell her she is beautiful every day and make sure she knows that the hate they are throwing are problems they are battling within themselves.
‘Never take the words they type to heart because they would never say it in person.’
The pair continue ignore the hate and post videos online of them swaying to popular R&B or rap tunes and racking up hundreds of thousands of views each time.
Last week they even set up an OnlyFans account, where they post NSFW photos and videos.
‘There’s a lot of creeps.’ said Cheryl.
‘I guess some things are better left not said!’
Quran added: ‘People really love her feet and it’s so weird!’
Despite all the hate, the happy couple try to remain positive and say that their legions of fans help keep them together.
They got engaged on July 31 and hope to get married very soon.
Quran said: ‘Keep doing you, do what makes you happy.
‘At the end of day everyone’s gonna judge you for something so you might as well do what you feel is right and never let someone take your peace.’
Cheryl said: ‘Don’t look for love because it will find you, because I wasn’t looking for love and it found me and it’s amazing.’
