Miracle Pogue and Charles Pogue, a married couple with a whopping 61-year age gap want to start a family and don’t care what haters say.
Despite the 61-year age gap, the pair are looking into IVF in the hope of starting a family to ensure Charles, who doesn’t have any children, leaves behind a new generation.
Miracle said: ‘I want him to have another generation. We’re looking to go to an IVF clinic to talk about our options.
‘We went to an IVF clinic before but we really felt the pre-judgment even though they don’t know me and it was quite overwhelming.
‘Now I’m forgetting it as long as they give me my baby. Maybe Charles’s age will stop us from having children but I have an open mind. It may not work.

Miracle Pogue reveals her family were supportive aside her dad who was harder to convince
According to dailymail.co.uk, Miracle says her mother Tamika Phillips, 45, and grandad Joe Brown, 72, were supportive of the relationship from the start after seeing how happy the pensioner made her but her dad Kareem Phillips, 47, was harder to convince.
Miracle said: ‘Charles used to bring in one item of clothing and only wanted me to serve him.
‘One day he waltzed in there and threw a piece of paper down and said “write down your number” like he’s a player. He was my knight in shining armour.
‘We had a good vibe going, he didn’t make me feel weird. It was good conversation, he made me feel comfortable. I knew he was older but I didn’t know his age exactly.
‘When I found out I was in too deep, it was a couple of months in and I already had feelings for him. He was my baby and he wasn’t going anywhere.
‘I found out in conversation when we asked each other our date of birth and he said he was born in 1937.
‘I never even placed his age, we just wanted to see how it went.
‘I don’t care if he’s 100 or 55, I like him for him. I thought he was maybe 60 or 70 because he looks so good. He’s always up and active.
‘My grandad said if I was happy and it’s what I want to do then he’s happy. My dad was like “hell no ma’am, not at all”.
‘It took a lot of time to convince him but I asked him if he wanted to lose his daughter forever.
‘If he didn’t come to my wedding, he would have lost me forever.
‘I told him I needed his support and to walk me down the aisle. Once he got to meet Charles and talk to him, he loved him.’
Charles said: ‘Miracle has got a lot going for her. She’s got her life in order, she’s great.
‘The wedding day was wonderful, it was the best day of my life. There’s no problem with the age difference.
