World’s First Surviving Septuplets – Look at Them 20 Years Later

The chances of having seven babies from one mother are a rarity. But that actually happened to the McCaughey couple two decades ago. Now, they and their kids want to show you they are fine, they’re healthy, and they survived. Hailing from Des Moines, Iowa, Bobbi and Kenny McCaughey did not think they would have seven children when they decided to add one more baby to their family. Back then, it was just them and little Mikayla Marie. Though they knew know that something called multiple births occur whenever an egg splits in two or more embryos, or when more than a single egg becomes fertilized in the womb, they didn’t know that it will produce seven kids. All the couple wanted was a sibling for their first-born. But they got more than they wanted besides a big family, they also got to meet the US president and TV talk show queen Oprah Winfrey.
