18 years ago, the McCaughey family welcomed seven new babies. They were the first septuplets to ever survive childbirth, and today, they’re doing better than ever.
Bobbi McCaughey gave birth to the first set of surviving septuplets 18 years ago.
In 1997, she was big news; her even appeared on the cover of Time magazine.
The couple was thrust into the national spotlight.
Of course, it wasn’t a simple delivery, but the babies were all born healthy.
Today, the large family is still doing well. Bobbi is proud of her family.
Her husband, Kenny, said that they were offered a reality show…
…but they declined, preferring instead to keep their family matters private.
Recently, NBC’s Today caught up with the McCaughey clan.
While they’ve faced some unique challenges, they’ve grown into a great family.
