*Rozonno and Mia McGhee‘s high-spirited sextuplets made a drive-by appearance Tuesday at a Television Critics Association panel for the family’s new reality series on UP, tentatively titled “The Little McGhees.”
It’s been more than two years since we last saw Josiah, Madison, Olivia, Issac, Rozonno Jr. and Elijah on OWN, when they were known as the “Six Little McGhees.” Their reality series on Oprah Winfrey’s cable channel followed the family’s memorable appearance on her talk show in 2011 – after Mia posted to Facebook a pic of the newborns sleeping on top of and around their daddy, and it went viral.
After three seasons on OWN, Mia and Rozonno still run their family carpet/upholstery cleaning business in Columbus, Ohio while raising their six children, who are now five-years-old.
As UP states: “Diaper changes and feeding schedules have been replaced by sassy opinions and chore charts.”
Members of the TCA saw a glimpse of their sextuplet swagger when they were led onto the stage – all dressed in coordinated shades of browns and tans and brick red – and promptly led off stage before they could break something.
Photographers didn’t even get a chance to take their pictures. All the kids had time to do was wave, shout random words and stomp around excitedly — like all five-year-olds do.
As handlers walked the boisterous bunch stage right and out of the ballroom, those same hello waves were suddenly goodbye waves. One child opted to jump from the stage instead of using the stairs. After his loud thud drew an audible gasp from the room, he shouted, “I’m okay!”
At that moment, another of the boys actually fell down the stairs. He’s fine. Before anyone could inquire about his condition, he and his siblings were shouting, “Bye everybody! We’re the McGhees!” to laughter and applause from the room.
There were no pictures, but we have audio. Listen below:
