The Harris sextuplets of Birmingham, Alabama have graduated from the Center Point High School in the United States.
The incredible story of the first known surviving set of African-American sextuplets is regaining attention following their recent accomplishment.
The Birmingham family of sextuplets became a national sensation after their parents welcomed them into the world on July 8, 2002.
In April 2007, they even appeared on The Oprah Show.
Diamond and Chris Harris welcomed their babies, two girls, Kaylynne and Kiera, and four boys, Kaleb, Kobe, Kieran and Kyle, after they used fertility drugs to get pregnant.
Dailymail.co.uk 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 drugs 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.
Briefly.coza has sighted the latest photo of the teenagers after social media user Ferlando Parker Sr shared it online.
According to him, the genius sextuplets are proud graduates of Center Point High School and the kids have their futures planned out.
He noted that Kobe and Kaylynne will be attending Alabama State while Kaleb and Kieran will be attending Alabama A&M.
Kiera will head to Lawson State and Kyle will be studying life skills at a Center Point High School.
Just recently, Briefly.co.za reported that a brilliant Ghanaian student identified as Kyle Ayisi has attained a remarkable feat after being accepted to 14 different universities in the United States, including five Ivy League Schools.
Some of the schools include Princeton, Columbia, Yale, Harvard, University of Pennsylvania, University of Chicago, Washington University, Johns Hopkins and Vanderbilt.
