Meet The World’s First Surviving Septuplets Who Turned 19

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.

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.

The children were born really tiny, the weight of the smallest kid was 2 lbs 8 oz (1,13 kilos) and the biggest kid was 3 lbs 4 oz (1,5 kilos). The doctors did what they could for the “Seven From Heaven,” and the children survived and grew up healthy. Alexis and Nathan were born with forms of cerebral palsy, but both of them underwent surgery and now they are doing well. Today they are healthy and in school.

Everybody understood how difficult and unusual the situation of the McCaughey family, so many people and charity foundations helped them. The family got a new big house, and the kids had free meals at school and still went on vacations. Apart from everything, Kenny has worked hard, and the children were taught the importance of achieving things on their own.

The older daughter, Mikayla, who was born a year earlier than her siblings, helped her mom to take care for the kids.
