Meet the first surviving Setuplets, they are over 18 year old now

The world’s first surviving septuplets turn 19
In 1997, the life of the McCaughey family was incredibly changed. Bobbie McCaughey gave birth to seven children — four boys and three girls. News about this miracle spread all over the world because McCaughey’s babies were the first ever surviving septuplets.

Kenny, Kelsey, Natalie, Brandon, Alexis, Nathan and Joel were called the ’Seven From Heaven.’ The upbringing of the septuplets was a great achievement for Bobbie and her husband Kenny, and everyone who has children can understand why. But despite all the difficulties, these kids were surrounded by tender love and care. More photos after cut...

This year the famous McCaughey children celebrated their 19th birthday! They turned into amazing young people who already know what they want to be when they grow up.

Back in 1997 Bobbie and Kenny wanted to have a second child so they turned for help to the IVF Center. After learning that Bobbie was pregnant with seven children following fertility treatment, the couple declined selective reduction to reduce the number of infants. The doctors tried to dissuade them, but the devoutly religious parents stayed true to their decision.

The McCaughey septuplets made history when they were born in 1997. Now they are young adults graduating high school. Several colleges has offered them scholarships.
