Watch ‘Growing Up McGhee’ Tonight On UPtv

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post but all thoughts are my own.

I have two boys and I often feel like my hands are full with just a couple kids. Then I heard about a family with sextuplets who had a television show and I knew I had to tune in because that mom must have some great tips on managing a household!

Once I learned who the family was that is featured on the show I realized that I remembered them from a photo I saw years ago. You may remember the McGhee family, too, from this adorable photograph below:

I remember seeing that image years ago when the babies were first born so I was shocked to realize that six years had passed and they now look like this:

How did that happen!? It seems like they grew up in the blink of an eye! (But then I realize that my kids seemed to as well….)

In the new series “Growing Up McGhee,” Ro and Mia McGhee and their sextuplets return to television as they try their best to balance a hectic life and all that comes with it, including their six different classes and all of the demands of their bustling family business. Life was busy enough taking care of six little babies, but now that their brood can walk, talk and share lots of laughs and mischief, Ro and Mia face brand new challenges and unexpected surprises that are throwing them for a loop. Diaper changes and feeding schedules have been replaced by sassy opinions, homework times six and chore charts. Not only do the kids continue to grow and learn, but the parents do too! With these six, they never know what is going to happen and never before have they felt more outnumbered.

The next episode airs tonight at 9pm EST on UPtv, with future episodes airing every Wednesday evening. I will be tuning in. Will you? Find me on Twitter tonight tweeting about the show as I watch it- my handle is @aliciamarie112 and I’ll be using the hashtag #GrowingUpMcGhee. Look forward to tweeting with you then! :)



  1. What an inspirational family. This looks like a fun show!

  2. I always enjoy watching shows like this. I have 4 kids, and I can’t imagine having any more than that.

  3. Robin Masshole Mommy says

    This sounds like a great show. I am definitely checking it out :)

  4. I have never heard of this family, but it looks like a fun family! I don’t have this channel anymore, I hope that it comes out on Netflix at some point.

  5. I TOTALLY remember them, 6 already?! I guess they need to replace the kate + 8 crew, so cute! I’ll check out the show!

  6. I’ve heard so much about this show lately. Sounds like something I’d be interested in watching. I’ll have to make sure to watch it too!

  7. I remember that photo! It doesn’t seem like that much time has passed. I have my hands full with just two sometimes. I couldn’t imagine having that many! It sounds like a great show :)

    I remember when these babies were born. Now they are walking, talking & being typical kids lol can’t wait to see what they get into this season.

  9. I watched this for the first time tonight. I really enjoyed it, it’s both cute and funny.

  10. Oh shoot. I meant to DVR this. It looks like such a great show. I love stories of fun families like this.

  11. I raised triplets and another boy a bit over a year older, and having 4 kids in diapers at once was no easy task, I don’t know how this family can do it all! But it’s cool that they are starting to have shows like this on aired television.

  12. They are so cute, but I’m sure managing six children is an Olympic event. Can’t wait to check out those adorable kids.

  13. Ann Bacciaglia says

    This is a fantastic show. I love watching the kids as they grow up. I can not imagine having that many kids all the same age.

  14. Amy Desrosiers says

    I think it is so cool that they had that many newborns at one time. I think I would go crazy but it certainly makes for some eventful moments.

  15. This is such a fun one to watch. I find it all so fascinating!

  16. I love watching shows about families with multiples. This show is especially enjoyable because the family is so sweet!
