Sextuplets Become Famous NATION Brian and Janine Killian of Peters PhotograPhy Mia McGhee and husband Rozonno are the proud parents of sextuplets. Mia says she was able to identify each child instantly. “They have different cries, skin complexions and different hair types and colors.” I t’s been five months and proud parents Mia and Rozonno McGhee are finally settling in to being first-time parents to six newborn babies. Born June 9 in Columbus, Ohio, their four boys and two girls — Isaac, Josiah, Elijah, Ro-zonno Jr., Madison and Olivia — have become little stars after recently being featured on their own Facebook page. “We’ve been receiving a lot of phone calls from producers who want to do a reality show … I’d rather do a book or let my kids model, something like that,” says Mia McGhee, who celebrates her 30th birthday Nov. 19 and the couple’s 11th wedding anniversary Nov. 18. “But it is very overwhelming. Talk shows con-tacted us … big-name corporations are trying to contact us wanting to help … with products.” McGhee explains that this was her second pregnancy. She previously miscarried twin boys, By melody K. hoffman and on Dec. 8 of last year, she conceived seven babies — they lost baby Naomi at 23 weeks. “It was horrible … we were concerned about the other (babies),” she says. But all six infants are happy and healthy. “The girls are feisty, they want what they want and they’re not going to stop until they get it,” she says of Madison and Olivia. “Josiah, he’s always been the smallest one. He was born at 1.5 pounds and is 9 pounds now. He’s a little fireball. Elijah has a bit of a temper. Rozonno Jr. is laid back and Isaac is a little jealous and nosy; he looks at everything.” The couple receives daily help with feeding, bathing and changing from their church family and friends. The sextuplets sleep two to a crib. With the children being born at Ohio State University, Mia says she hopes they receive scholarships to the same school. “These are my Buckeye babies,” she laughs.// MYJET247.COM 15
