Quran McCain, 24, has revealed that he and wife, Cheryl McGregor, 61, are planning their first baby together.
The pair from Rome, Georgia, first met when Quran was just 15, when the pair worked in the fast food chain Dairy Queen.
However, romantic feelings didn't blossom until much later.
The couple, who have a 37-year age gap, have been together since and married in autumn last year – and they think now is the perfect time to start a family.
This is despite the fact that Cheryl already has seven children and 17 grandchildren already.
Quran said: “We got married in September 2021, and it’s been a few months since we are ready to start a family.
“Cheryl is 61 and has seven children and 17 grandchildren already but we feel we deserve children of our own."
The couple have already tried to have children, but don't think it's an option because of Cheryl's age.
They are instead going to try surrogacy or adoption.
Quran added: “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 so he would feel that we are his true parents.
“Both of Cheryl’s daughters had hysterectomies in the last few years otherwise they would have been the best option for being as close to a biological child as possible.”
Cheryl added: “If I am not here he can do it. He's gonna be a great father, he’s a responsible adult.
“We understand that I may not be there for as long as Quran is but I have faith in him.
“I had every bit of faith that he could raise our child and do it very well.
She also said that despite being 'hesitant' at first, their family are now very supportive of their plan to have children.
The revelation comes after Quran slammed trolls this week who call him a 'necrophiliac' for marrying Cheryl.
