Stumbled on a random site and the photos below caught my attention – The Walton Sextuplets. Walton sextuplets were born in Wallasey, on the Wirral England on 18 November 1983 and were the world’s first all-female surviving sextuplets, and the world’s fourth known set of surviving sextuplets.
In order of birth, and with their weight at birth the sextuplets are:
- Hannah Jane, 2lbs 1oz
- Lucy Anne, 2lbs 15ozs
- Ruth Michelle, 2lbs 11ozs
- Sarah Louise, 2lbs 5ozs
- Kate Elizabeth, 2lbs 13ozs
- Jennifer Rose, 3lbs 8ozs
Quoted from dailymail.co.uk site below:
The girls were conceived via IVF and their parents – who had been planning to adopt after 12 failed attempts at fertility treatment – took a year off work to care for them full-time.
Mr Walton, 60, described living with seven women for much of his life as an ‘eye-opener’ but revealed he expected everything to change ‘dramatically, with weddings and babies likely to happen soon’.
However, he added: ‘If they all moved out tomorrow it would be dreadful. I love the noise and the shouting and have loved every minute of them growing up.’
