Harris family sextuplets of Birmingham, Alabama have graduated from high school. The two girls, Kaylynne and Kiera, and four boys, Kaleb, Kobe, Kieran and Kyle graduated from the Center Point High School in the United States. Social media user, Ferlando Parker Sr., recently celebrated the latest accomplishment of the sextuplets online. He writes: How about offering your congratulations to the Harris sextuplets! They are high school grads! It seems like yesterday that Chris and Diamond Harris welcomed six babies into the world (July 8th, 2002). You may remember what a huge story it was in the Birmingham area, as the family appeared on "Oprah" and other national TV shows. I cannot fathom what it was like for Chris and Diamond to raise six kids (4 boys and 2 girls): They say they used up to 60 diapers a day, took the trash out 5 times a day, and spent over $1200 a week on groceries! Oh, and sleep was pretty much out of the question. Now the kids are proud graduates of Center Point High School, and the kids have their futures planned out: Kobe and Kalynne will be attending Alabama State. Kaleb and Kieran will be attending Alabama A&M. Kiera will head to Lawson State. Kyle will be studying life skills a Center Point High School. I think Chris and Diamond need a nice vacation, don't you? I know the family would love to hear from us, so let's send them our encouragement. Hooray to the graduates! 👏👏👏 Congratulations from all of us at ihangTVs.com LLC.

Dailymail reports that in 2001, the couple really wanted to get pregnant and start a family together.

Diamond's first child from a previous relationship, Dewayne, was five, and the couple from Birmingham, Alabama, had been married over two years, but they were struggling to conceive.

Diamond, a nurse, was prescribed fertility dr*gs by her doctor, who told them not to get their hopes up.

Before long, Diamond was pregnant, and the doctor excitedly told them it was twins.

However, a sonogram showed them they were actually having five children.

On July 8, 2002, Diamond and Chris had welcomed the first-ever surviving set of African American sextuplets.

In 2015, the girls, Kaylynne and Kiera, and the four boys, Kaleb, Kobe, Kieran and Kyle marked their 13th birthday.
