The Birmingham family of sextuplets became a national sensation after their parents welcomed them into the world on July 8, 2002. In April 2007, they even appeared on The Oprah Show.
Diamond and Chris Harris welcomed their babies, two females, Kaylynne and Kiera, and four boys, Kaleb, Kobe, Kieran and Kyle after they used fertility dru*gs to get pregnant.
Dailymail reports that in 2001, the couple really wanted to get pregnant and start a family together. Diamond's first child from a previous relationship, Dewayne, was five, and the couple from Birmingham, Alabama, had been married over two years, but they were struggling to conceive.
Diamond, a nurse, was prescribed fertility dr*gs by her doctor, who told them not to get their hopes up. Before long, Diamond was pregnant, and the doctor excitedly told them it was twins.
However, a sonogram showed them they were actually having five children. On July 8, 2002, Diamond and Chris had welcomed the first-ever surviving set of African American sextuplets.
In 2015, the girls, Kaylynne and Kiera, and the four boys, Kaleb, Kobe, Kieran and Kyle marked their 13th birthday.
