Although it was just a rumor and Queen Cheryl is alive and well, she recently shared a shocking update that some fans are struggling to digest.

The news first broke in May 2024 when Cheryl held up a collection of sonogram photos. Because Cheryl didn't provide much context, people immediately assumed she was pregnant. However, in June, another video came out with the text overlay reading "surrogacy update." It appears Cheryl and Quran managed to find a surrogate to carry their baby and were able to successfully conceive.

Queen Cheryl and King Quran embarked on their journey to start a family in 2022.

According to The U.S. Sun, Queen Cheryl and King Quran (real names: Cheryl McGregor and Quran McCain) began discussing having a baby in 2022. The unorthodox couple addressed the logistics of this scenario. "We have tried for children but with age, we feel surrogacy or adoption would be a better option," Quran told the outlet in early 2022.

To no one's surprise, the old-fashioned way didn't work, so Queen Cheryl and King Quran began looking for other options.

"We prefer surrogacy. However, we have seen a lot of people embroiled in legal complications far after the child is born," Quran continued to the outlet. He went on to express concern over a surrogate not wanting to give them their baby which is why they considered adoption and in particular a "biracial baby, so he would feel that we are his true parents."

Having a baby at 63 is not unheard of but it probably takes a village. In September 2021 WANE News reported that 62-year-old Kathy Blattner gave birth to a little girl. However, it was not an easy journey. She and her husband used in vitro fertilization but the eggs were donated by her daughter (Kathy's husband is her daughter's stepfather). If Queen Cheryl and King Quran wanted to do something similar, it wouldn't be possible. Quran told The U.S. Sun that both of Cheryl's daughters had hysterectomies.

Fortunately, it seems the unconventional couple has found a solution that works for them. Regardless of public opinion about them having a child, they are both smitten by the idea and can't wait for her arrival.
