The photo we’re talking about is non-other than the McGhee family and their sextuplets. The beautiful Black family’s photo was shared 6 years ago on social media and would not stop.
Husband and wife Mia and Rozonno McGhee said initially, it was a struggle for them to get pregnant, so they turned to fertility drugs in the hopes of being able to conceive a child.
On their first try, Mia became pregnant with twins, but that pregnancy sadly ended in a miscarriage. Not wanting to give up hope, she and Rozonno decided to try again and the next time they got way more than they ever expected.
The photo of the newborns and parents got shared by people all over the world. But when it came across Oprah’s eyes, the couples’ lives were forever changed.
It was one surprise after another for the close-knit family.
Oprah gave the couple a 4-night honeymoon in Vegas complete with tickets to Celine Dion’s show and a $250,000 gift card to Walmart. The couple also left with an extra month supply of diapers, formula and Oprah-branded baby clothes.
Although the children were too young to remember, their parents said it was an experience they will never forget.
“Amazing, simply amazing,” Mia McGhee said. “It was like a dream.”
Siblings Elijah, Issac, Josiah, Madison, Olivia and Rozonno Jr., who turn 6 years old this week, huddled around their mom and dad for the photo, which was shot by Brian and Janine Killian of Peters Photography, the same photographers who took the original image.
The siblings made history on June 9, 2010 as the first set of sextuplets known to be born in Columbus, Ohio.
The new updated photo was commissioned to promote their new reality TV show on the UP network, “Growing Up McGhee,” which premieres tonight.
The show isn’t the family’s first time on the small screen, though. They also had a reality show on the Oprah Winfrey Network, “Six Little McGhees,” which ended in 2014.
Their new series shows how parents Rozonno and Mia McGhee balance taking care of six children while also running their carpet-cleaning business.
