The first-ever surviving set of African-American sextuplets are all grown-up. They graduated from high school in Birmingham, Alabama recently.


The Harris sextuplets, Kiera Christine, Kaylynne Antoinett, Kaleb Reddrick, Kobe Byshari, Kieran Anthony, and Kyle Jacob, completed their senior year at Center Point High School in the United States on June 2.

Their proud dad, Chris Harris, took to Facebook to share an adorable photo of the sextuplets wearing their graduation gown.

Harris and his ex-wife Diamond welcomed the sextuplets on July 7, 2002, as reported by Simple Most. Prior to them, the two had one son named Dewayne.


Harris and Diamond just wanted to give Dewayne a sibling or two to play with. In any case, fertility treatments prompted what they thought was a pregnancy with five children. During delivery, the 6th kid was an astonishment.

The sextuplets became a national sensation as they grew up. They were in a Discovery Health documentary. They also appeared on "The Oprah Show" in 2007.

The Birmingham family received a new house via the television show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" in 2009. However, they have always had to stretch things financially.


Chris is a teacher, and Diamond was initially a nurse until she quit her job to care for her sextuplets. After finishing their senior year, the sextuplets are all headed off to higher learning.

All six children are proceeding with their education in Alabama.

As reported by Today, in spite of the fact that the most intense cheers came from their doting parents, the two of them concede they've been feeling somewhat unhappy.

"The morning of the ceremony, I sat in bed looking at their baby pictures and felt depressed," Diamond said in an interview with TODAY Parents. "It's going to be too quiet."


On the splendid side, they'll likely be popping in to do laundry. All six children are proceeding with their education in Alabama.

"These kids have been my life for almost 18 years. They have been my reason," Chris told TODAY Parents. "I keep reminding myself it's just going to be different, but everything will be OK."

As reported by Daily Mail, Harris and Diamond called it quits in 2012. The former couple, however, manages everything well.
