The Ohio-based McGhee family, who welcomed sextuplets in 2010, posed for an updated version of a photo that went viral six years ago. It has been many years since the world got introduced to the family, and we all want to know, what’s going on with them now?
After giving birth to Columbus’ first set of sextuplets, the McGhee family has a new place to call home. Mia and Rozonno McGhee welcomed their six babies in June. The adorable Ohio-based McGhee sextuplets turn 6 years old – happy birthday to them! Remember their family portrait that went viral in 2010? Four cute little boys and two little girls sleeping on their father… Pretty hard to forget. Well now, 6 years later, they’ve recreated the photo using the same photographer and studio. The results are absolutely adorable! The picture below made it to Facebook and totally melted millions of hearts. In it, we see the father and mother, and their six babies.
The sextuplets – Olivia, Madison, Rozonno Jr., Josiah, Elijah, and Isaac – and their parents are also starring in a new UP show ‘Growing Up McGhee’, which premiered yesterday. It’s about how parents Rozonno and Mia balance their day-to-day life with caring for the sextuplets while juggling the needs of their family carpet and upholstery cleaning business. So cute, what energy mom and dad just need to keep up with these kids!! Wow, I admire them and wish them well. They wondered how they could afford this family. But no matter what happened, love would be their foundation. To express that love, they decided to have this adorable photo taken with little Rozonno Jr., Olivia, Madison, Elijah, Issac, and Josiah. Yet, the family’s luck started to change when that photo went viral. It caught the attention of Oprah Winfrey, who invited them to her show. When they arrived, she gave them $250,000 in Wal-Mart credit and bankrolled Mia and Rozonno’s belated honeymoon in Las Vegas.
That appearance inspired an outpouring of generosity. Soon, total strangers were donating diapers and offering to pay for car seats. Eventually, the McGhees had to turn people away. Things only got better from there. The family ended up getting their own reality show called 6 Little McGhees. It aired on the Oprah Winfrey Network and followed the family as the kids grew up and the parents balanced their obligations.
Throughout the series cameras capture the tender moments, the chaos, the good times and the tantrums as a handful of volunteers join Mia and Ro, including Ro’s mother (also known as Miss Charmyne), to take care of the six growing toddlers, Josiah, Madison, Olivia, Issac, Rozonno Jr. and Elijah. From doctor visits to church services to the children’s second birthday party, every step of the way the McGhees prove that “it takes a village” when it comes to their unique family and that love can overcome any obstacle. But the McGhee household is not always filled with bliss. Conflicts arise as Mia and Ro, who don’t always see eye-to-eye, disagree on running their carpet cleaning business and must learn to take time for themselves to keep the spark in their marriage.
Even better, Rozonno’s business grew, allowing the McGhees to purchase a larger home. He said, “You’d be surprised what sextuplets can do for you — they really motivated me.” Altogether, the kids were able to grow up perfectly happy and healthy. To commemorate how their family had grown over the last six years, the McGhees wanted to do something special. So they recreated their famous photo.
