Kenny and Bobbie McCaughey from Iowa had a little daughter named Mikayla when they decided it was time for a new sibling for her. But when they got pregnant, they got the biggest surprise of their lives. The ultrasound showed seven different heartbeats! In 1997, Kenny and Bobbie became the parents of the first set of septuplets to ever survive infancy.
No complete set of septuplets had ever survived before this. They didn’t want to reduce the number of embryos and decided to leave everything in “God’s hands” and had faith that everything would turn out the way it was supposed to. Bobbie delivered all seven babies on November 19th, 1997. And now these siblings are turning 18!
The following video features a clip from the “Where Are They Now?” series. This family was never on a reality show, thankfully, but agreed to be a part of this series since their babies’ birth made the national, and maybe even international, news when it happened. In this video, we learn where these septuplets are now.
It appears this family made a good decision when they had faith that everything would turn out the way it was supposed to. This clip is from “The Today Show” as they interview the parents and all seven siblings as they prepare to enter their senior year of high school.
