‘Miracle Babies’ Who Were The World’s First Set Of Surviving Septuplets Are All Grown Up Now

Conceiving twins, triplets or even quadruplets is a thrilling – if not rare – occurrence. There is undoubtedly a lot of shock uncertainty amid the excitement and joy when a couple finds out they are expecting a multiple birth. But what happens when you find out you’ll soon be welcoming seven babies into the world? It might sound unimaginable, but that’s exactly what young couple Kenny and Bobbi Mccaughey discovered. Although they had only been trying to have one more baby to accompany their first-born daughter, they ended up with the surprise of a lifetime! But just how the McCaughey septuplets survived their precarious first few months of life to make history is truly unforgettable. You won’t want to miss this amazing story of the world’s first surviving septuplets!

The McCaugheys

Septuplets are so rare as to be borderline statistically impossible. Of all known cases, none had resulted in all seven children surviving. The McCaughey septuplets were to be the first to break that rule. The McCaugheys were given an option for “selective reduction” treatment to abort some of the fetuses in order to increase the survival chances of the others, but they declined, saying they would “put it in God’s hands.” The septuplets are now grown, adults.
