Kenny and Bobbi McCaughey became parents to the first set of surviving septuplets in 1997. The seven children will turn 18 on Nov. 19, according a video posted Wednesday by the "Today" show.

"Today" show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie spoke with the entire family as part of the show's "Where Are They Now?" series.

Bobbie McCaughey attributed the ability to raise seven children to a strong support system of family, friends and faith.

"I think early on we had so much help from family and friends," she said. "If there was anything we needed, there was always someone there who was willing to help us. We have a super strong support system. We have a super strong faith that has been the rock that we have had to stand on."

The septuplets are entering their senior year of high school.
