Sweet Home Sextuplets: The Waldrop Kids Tackle Big Brother
Filming of the popular reality show, Sweet Home Sextuplets, stopped when the pandemic hit. But, Courtney Waldrop and her husband knew they had quite a following.

Now, Courtney continues to capture precious moments and updates about what the family has been up to lately.
Recently, Courtney Waldrop chronicled a magical moment on the last day of 2020. Three of the sextuplets and older brother, Wales Waldrop, tackled Saylor Waldrop. And the whole group laughed and smiled as they hugged each other in a big dogpile of kids. Courtney also posted a picture of all the Sweet Home Sextuplets children. You can see the pile of all the kids below.
The Waldrop Family Made it Another Year
When the first season of Sweet Home Sextuplets aired, TLC viewers watched all the hardships their family endured. They saw Courtney’s difficult pregnancy up to the terrifying birth of the sextuplets. Then, there was the journey as the premature babies improved and finally left the NICU.
The six kids of Eric and Courtney Waldrop slowly, but surely, grew in size, age, and development. Layke Waldrop was born with a hole in his heart, but thankfully it closed enough that he didn’t need surgery. And on the last episode that aired before the shutdown, Courtney and Eric’s sextuplets were evaluated for development and speech.
While a few of the Sweet Home Sextuplets offspring were behind for their age, most were doing well. And with a little therapy and effort, the rest should catch up, said the experts. The pandemic definitely made things difficult, but Courtney persevered and worked with Eric to get their children up to speed. And now they are ready to take on the new year. See their last picture of the year below which Courtney captioned “Bye Bye 2020!”
Sweet Home Sextuplets: Finally Back Home
As part of their struggle in the past year, the expansive Sweet Home Sextuplets clan lived in a mobile home while their house was remodeled. Initially, they were supposed to be there for four months. But, things took a turn for the worse with a huge storm and tornado watch. And water damaged some of the windows and walls of the house. This delayed construction, as those areas had to be redone.
And the money to do that meant that Courtney Waldrop and Eric Waldrop couldn’t afford their master bedroom add-on. Then, COVID hit and construction on the remodel stopped. This further delayed work on the Sweet Home Sextuplets house. But, with safety measures in place, work began again. And after seven months in the mobile home, they returned to their house.
Now, the space is everything they dreamed of for their family. And the Waldrops spent the holidays and the end of 2020 in their newly remodeled home. Eric Waldrop and wife Courtney Waldrop said they are thankful to start off the new year in their dream house, with nine healthy, happy children.
