A new reality show for the first sextuplets born in Columbus

Six years since their births turned them into local celebrities, a new reality show about the McGhee sextuplets will debut at 9 p.m. Wednesday on the UP Network. The six children-four boys and two girls-were the first sextuplets born in Columbus and were featured in Columbus Monthly's April "Where Are They Now" cover story.

The healthy, happy children aren't new to TV. They starred in a previous reality show that ran on the OWN Network from 2012 to 2015, along with their parents, Ro and Mia. Their new program-called
Growing Up McGhee-began filming earlier this year, trailing the children around in their Licking County home and their kindergarten classes, and followed their parents as they work at their family business, McGhee Carpet Cleaning.

The show will run Wednesday evenings on the UP Network, which can be found on most cable and satellite providers in Central Ohio.
