Through the years, TLC Network has showcased the stories of a number of families on shows like “19 Kids and Counting” and “Kate Plus 8”, with all the shows dealing with the joys and the challenges of having a large family. But now, the much-loved network is adding another family to their mix in the form of the Waldrop Family.
Premiering this September, the docuseries “Sweet Home Sextuplets” will tell the story of Eric and Courtney, parents of not only 3 young boys, but six new babies. And yes, that was the sound of our heart exploding.
“The boys (Saylor, Wales and Bridge) are excited, but I don’t think they’re quite old enough to understand what’s about to happens,” Eric says in a teaser for the show before the fraternal sextuplets named Blu, Layke, Tag, Rawlings, Rayne, and Rivers were born at just under 30 weeks gestation.
In fact, the babies were actually born last December, and the show has been taping ever since in preparation for their Sept. 18 premiere. The little ones weighed in anywhere from 2 pounds, 4 ounces to 2 pounds 14 ounces, and were delivered by C-section under the careful watch of a team of medical professionals awaiting their arrival.
So, who can’t wait for another family to love?
