(Silver Spring, MD) - Courtney and Eric Waldrop, their three older boys and sextuplet babies are coming to TLC with new series SWEET HOME SEXTUPLETS, premiering Tuesday, September 18 at 10/9c. A tight-knit family living on a sheep farm in small town Alabama, parents Courtney and Eric got the surprise of their lives when trying for one more baby yielded sextuplets. In six, one-hour episodes, viewers are invited to join the family just before they give birth, through their high-risk delivery, the babies' admittance to the NICU and adjusting to a new normal after bringing them all home.

"TLC is the number one destination for extraordinary families like the Waldrops, and we're so excited to be sharing their story," says Howard Lee, President and General Manager of TLC. "A first for the network, we began this journey with Courtney and Eric even before the sextuplets arrived, when they already had three boys in their brood. Our viewers get to see exactly what it's like to experience such a life-altering moment in its entirety, going from a family of five all the way through expanding to a family of eleven."

Courtney and Eric were childhood sweethearts with a dream to start a family together. After having their oldest son Saylor and looking to add to their family, a miscarriage tragically revealed that Courtney had a blood clotting disorder which could risk both baby and mother's life, so they turned to fertility medication. The medication was a success when they got pregnant with their now five-year-old twins, Wales and Bridge. But they got the shock of their lives when trying again and discovering that Courtney was expecting six! Now Courtney and Eric have their hands full, not only with their miracle sextuplets but also in continuing to devote love, time and attention to their three older boys.

In the first episode, viewers will meet the Waldrops when Courtney is 25-weeks pregnant and already on strict bedrest while bracing herself and her family for what's to come. Because they live over an hour from the hospital where a team of over 30 staff members are assigned to the Waldrop delivery, anxieties are high to make sure everything goes according to plan. Cameras follow the tail-end of Courtney's pregnancy, including a gender reveal attended by the whole community, the arrival of all six babies and their immediate admittance to the NICU.

But as all parents know, the birth is only the beginning! The season continues with the Waldrops bringing their babies home, managing the medical concerns that come with premature birth especially during flu season, going through about seventy diapers a day and enlisting friends and family to help with round-the-clock care and feedings, all while continuing to care for Saylor, Wales and Bridge. Plus, Courtney and Eric know they need more income long-term and must make major decisions for their future, which includes the possibility of Courtney going back to work as a teacher soon. With so much to keep track of, how will Courtney and Eric manage their soccer-team sized household?
