When the Furtik quads appeared on The Oprah Show on October 5, 2000, these 10-year-old stars were known for their roles in national commercials and TV shows.
Then, when they were 4 years old, the girls were separated after 16 hours of high-risk surgery. The twins celebrated their good news with Oprah in January 2007.
Thanks to an inspiring upbringing, these young men have come a long way from their humble beginnings. Not only did the Martin brothers succeed—they soared. During an Oprah Show appearance on April 10, 2007, the triplets explained how they finished high school at the top of their class, graduated from law school and pledged to donate $1 million to their alma mater, Jackson State University.
Although the babies were small, their birth was big news—they are the first set of surviving African-American sextuplets in history. The entire family visited The Oprah Show on April 10, 2007.
"It's fun," Zach said during a 2006 Oprah Show appearance. "We go through the same experiences as we grow up, but we experience [them in] different ways."
On October 23, 2008, these world-famous twins discussed their clothing line during their Oprah Show debut.
"We've got really normal parents," Jenna said. "They really instilled the important things—family and friends and service."
Instead of one baby, they conceived five: Brooklyn, Ryan, Jack, Britton and Lila. The quintuplets were on The Oprah Show on December 28, 2010, when they were almost 2 years old.
