34 Years Ago, The World’s First All-Girl Sextuplets Were Born. Here’s What They Look Like Now

In 1983, the Walton sextuplets, the first surviving set of all-female sextuplets, were born. Parents Janet and Graham Walton faced fertility struggles, undergoing twelve rounds of treatments before Janet became pregnant with six girls.

Janet, with a high-risk pregnancy, carried the sextuplets until the 31st week. Born on November 18, 1983, the baby girls were named Hannah, Ruth, Luci, Kate, Jennie, and Sarah. The Waltons used 10,000 diapers in the girls’ first two years, struggling with limited sleep.

Thirty-four years later, the sextuplets are thriving:

  • Hannah is a schoolteacher with multiple degrees.
  • Kate works in human resources.
  • Luci is a crew member for a major airline.
  • Jennie owns a sweet shop.
  • Ruth is engaged and works at a call center.
  • Sarah works at a medical center and is a mother to Jorgie, the first grandchild.

Janet and Graham are proud of their daughters’ accomplishments and have wise advice for Sarah, who now understands the challenges of motherhood.
