    I just want to say “Hey Lady!! They’re ALL ASLEEP AT ONCE. GO TAKE A NAP NOW!!”

  2. Evie says:

    Cute picture but I keep thinking … “Man that’s a lot of pee. Get some diapers on those babies.”

  3. steph says:

    What does he have to be tired from? These look like very young babies and Mom look FANTASTIC!…and they call us the weaker sex!

  4. Megan says:

    6 babies + 0 diapers = accident waiting to happen. Brave Daddy!

  5. Lilian says:

    I’m very impressed the photographer got this shot at all! So sweet!

  6. Melly says:

    Gross. It’s like they had a litter.

  7. Adrienne says:

    Absolutely beautiful~! I want to know how they got them all to sleep at the same time! I can’t even get my two to coordinate for a nap!

  8. Stephanie says:

    Ok, so I love this picture, it’s cute and clever. The questions I have are how in the world did they get six newborns to fall asleep like that, and how in the world were they brave enough to go sans diapers. How long did this picture take to set up? I’m truly amazed by the how complex this picture is.

  9. Selena says:

    I’m surprised they do not have their own show on TLC.

  10. Berni says:

    Thia is adorable, and so creative. Doesn’t belong with all the weirdos we usually see.

  11. amyjodeb says:

    That’s adorable!!!!! Someone give them some free diapers for 5 years! They are going to need it!!!

  12. Jennalee2 says:

    This is fantastic! The only thing that would have made it more adorable is if Mom pretended to be asleep too. I love it.

  13. Laura says:

    seriously, though – how did they get all 6 kids asleep at the same time??? I can’t even do that with 2!!!

  14. stench blossom says:

    thats a lot of babies!! i couldnt even imagine having six babies, or how any woman can physically do it!!! fair play to this woman and her babies daddy! :)

  15. D says:

    Is he asleep or passed out–from the shock of it all? A very sweet pic. Although–why does Dad get to sleep and Mama has to stay awake? Actually–this pic is pretty true to life of how it goes down in most households. Those are the sweetest looking babies though!

  16. GC says:

    Great pic. Not really awkward.

  17. Maddie says:

    Aww, this one is PRECIOUS! LOVE it.

  18. Kri says:

    I wonder if he got peed on!!!

    Very cute photo by the way.

  19. Cindy says:

    Shouldn’t SHE be the one sleeping??? LOL

  20. ? says:

    How are the babies all sleeping? Am I the only one that feels sorry for mom- This is insane! Of course dad is sleeping, moms never get a break!

  21. Amanda J says:

    This is amazing.. so beautiful!

  22. Lynn says:

    This is by far the best picture I have ever seen on here. Beautiful!!! I love it.

  23. Lesli says:

    That is the sweetest picture I have ever seen. I love the way the babies are curled up to their daddy!

  24. Jennifer says:

    I love this picture… I don’t see how it is awkward… it is beautiful!

  25. Amy K says:

    I think it’s cute too. Dad could have used a shirt though

  26. zukimac says:

    Awwww… I love this photo….it’s not awkward…’s beautiful

  27. bucksnut says:

    This is adorable! Love it :)

  28. Rob says:

    Well I guess this is a little bit awkward…but I think its actually a pretty cool pic.

  29. Heidi says:

    I actually think this is pretty cute

  30. Janik says:

    Why are the pictures on this website so small? – Obvious answer here: So the babies look even smaller. But apart from that? … That’s really a weak point of this site.

    • cruelie julie says:

      I agree. I want a close-up of those precious faces!

      However, I can’t say that about every photo on this site….some are just fine being minute!

    • Natty says:

      I agree, Janik! This pic is so cute, I’d like to see a bigger version. On a side note, I think the most awkward thing about this pic is that the babies aren’t wearing diapers! Take that pic quick!!! :)

  31. imma hotmess says:

    It’s actually a really cute pic…but why is he not wearing a shirt?

  32. MamaLiz says:

    This isn’t an awkward photo at all–it’s adorable! Don’t you want to cuddle all six of those babies at once?

  33. Rhonda says:

    I don’t think this is awkward. I think it’s precious!

  34. Kat says:

    Not awkward, beautiful picture. SWEET, SWEET, SWEET!

  35. Janelle says:

    It IS a little awkward, and I can’t imagine how many extra helping hands there are behind the scenes getting all those babies set up, but that is just so cute.

  36. bored@work says:

    He better enjoy that nap. It is the last sleep he will be getting for a long time.

  37. Tami says:

    I think this is cute! The one peaceful moment they may have. Wonder how long it took to set this up.

  38. mbob says:

    twf? are these all their kids? well, nice work though.

  39. Mary says:

    Now see-I think that’s just damn cute! How else are you gonna pose with all six of your babies? LOL

  40. Dee says:

    I think that us quite cute. Not awkward at all.

  41. Mol Wol says:

    Did he have to borrow those babies, or are they all his? I’ve known animals that have had smaller litters than that!

    • zukimac says:

      I saw that couple on TV… those are their babies.

    • kc says:

      They are his. I recently saw this couple interviewed on one of the morning news/talk shows. For parents of sextuplets, they appeared remarkably serene and well-rested.

    • Lava Girl says:

      Actually it is a real family that just had sextuplets in Ohio… I got an email about them last week… he didn’t have to borrow them for the picture… LOLOL :)

  42. Kristen says:

    There is nothing awkward about this picture. It’s adorable. I think my favorite is the baby with the sleep smile against the Dad’s head :)

  43. Aaryn says:

    Ok…so a little weird that Dad is pretending to be asleep…but awe, those babies are cute!

  44. Seneca says:

    I’m a bit of a sap for saying this, but I actually think this portrait is really sweet. Those babies are adorable!

  45. Karin says:

    Holy babies, Batman.

  46. MissEllie in MO says:

    That is absolutely adorable. :)

  47. Ruby says:

    Crazy! But I’ll have to give it to them! Great job—sextuplets….wow. That’s like a whole litter!! Good luck getting any sleep at all!

  48. Cheryl says:

    This is just too cute!

  49. Becky says:


  50. Lori B says:

    Okay, this one isn’t awkward at all. It is soooo cute. ‘Course, he’s sleeping because he suddenly has SIX babies. But still cute.
