Famous Septuplets Graduate From High School And Reveal Their Plans For The Future
The world's first set of septuplets to survive infancy graduated from high school in Iowa on Sunday.
The world's first set of septuplets to survive infancy are now high school graduates.
The McCaughey septuplets — Alexis, Brandon, Joel, Kelsey, Kenny, Natalie and Nathan — graduated from Carlisle High School in Carlisle, Iowa on Sunday.
The siblings grew up together in the public eye since they were born in 1997. At four years old, they met President George W. Bush.
For the first time, they’re parting ways. Kenny is heading into the construction business; the separation is hurting him the most.
“I am going to miss everyone, to see us all go,” he told KCCI.
Brandon is leaving the nest for the military. “My job is the infantry. I am going active duty for that,” he said.
Others are heading out of state for college. “I want to go into musical theater,” said Kelsey.
Nathan said, “I plan to go into computer science.”
Their mother Bobbi, 29 at the time, took a fertility drug after she and her husband had trouble conceiving. Their pregnancy captured worldwide attention, and stirred a debate about her treatments.
But through it all, the siblings stuck together. “[We are] best friends, not brothers and sisters, and blessed that we've gotten to that point,” Alexis said.
Two of the siblings said they will at Hannibal-LaGrange University in Missouri, where their parents were told they would receive a free education, according to KCCI 8.
