An American family got a lot more than they were bargaining for after putting a family photo up on Facebook.
The McGhee family recently had sextuplets and poster a photo of their family on the popular social networking site, Facebook, and before long it had become an internet sensation.
To one powerful American women, it became the opportunity to do some good, as Oprah Winfrey invited the family onto her show, and gave the family $250,000 of Walmart store credit, and bought the couple a long overdue honeymoon to Las Vegas.
Rozonna and Mia, with sextuplets, Isaac, Elijah, Josiah, Rozonno Jr, Madison and Olivia, will be well fed after the remarkable gesture from Oprah Winfrey.
Celine Dion, who was on the show as a guest at the same time as the family also handed them front row tickets to one of her gigs.
The couple, who had struggled financially to deal with the costs of six new born babies, revealed that they can go through 50 nappies and 30 bottles of milk a day.
The sextuplets mark the end of a remarkable turnaround for the couple, who were married as teenagers, and had turned to fertility treatment to have twins, who sadly died just after birth.
The couple quickly became pregnant again, this time with six babies, despite the late nights they are thankful for their babies.
Mia said: ‘It can become overwhelming, but it’s a joy. It’s a joy being a mom now.’
She added, “Most days, maybe two or three people come throughout the morning and then the night to help with baths and help with clean up.
“I stick to a schedule and clean the babies’ bottles as soon as they’re done eating and dispose of their diapers regularly. That keeps the smell down.
“When I was at the airport I actually held one baby and changed another.”
The couple will now be able to afford to feed their children for years to come with Oprah’s kind gift, as well as enjoying their 4 night stay at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, and the tickets courtesy of Celine Dion.
