World’s First Surviving Septuplets Graduate from High School

By: Annie Scaramuzzino

When they were born in 1997, the McCaughey septuplets had no idea how much attention they’d receive.

Fast-forward nearly a decade, and the seven siblings are just like any other teens; graduating from high school and looking towards future plans.

According to the Des Moines Register, Alexis, Brandon, Joel, Kelsey, Kenny, Natalie and Nathan McCaughey graduated from Carlisle High School in Iowa on Sunday (May 22).

The McCaughey family was once the topic of great discussion after Bobbi McCaughey’s fertility treatment resulted in seven babies.

At the time, undergoing fertility treatment was not nearly as common as it is today.

“The pregnancy has captured worldwide attention as both a symbol of the ultimate scientific miracle and a cautionary example of the unwanted consequences of fertility treatments,” the New York Times wrote in 1997.

According to KCCI-TV, the seven sibs have different plans now that they’ve finished high school, with some entering the military and college and others heading straight for the work force.

Congrats to the McCaughey kids on their graduation!
