World’s First Surviving Septuplets – look at them 20 years later

When they famously came into the world back in 1997, their doctors were worried that they would not be able to survive the first few hours out of the womb. Boy, were they proven wrong: The McCaughey septuplets not only did they make it, but they flourished. They have just celebrated the 20th birthday and are making the transition into young adulthood without skipping a beat.

Kenny Jr., Brandon, Natalie, Kesley, Alexis, Nathan and Joel, are the first septuplets in history to survive their infancy. As they enter their third decade of their lives, leave home and begin to take on adult responsibilities, few people are as pleasantly surprised at how well they have turned out that their parents, Kenny and Bobbi McCaughey.
