The McCaughey septuplets (born November 19, 1997) are a set of septuplets born to Kenny and Bobbi McCaughey in Des Moines, Iowa, United States.

The siblings are the world's first set of septuplets to survive infancy. They were born nine weeks prematurely in Des Moines to Kenny and Bobbi McCaughey (pronounced "McCoy"), residents of the nearby town of Carlisle. The septuplets have one older sister, Mikayla Marie (born January 3, 1996).

The septuplets were conceived as the result of fertility drugs. When the couple discovered that Bobbi was carrying seven infants, they declined selective reduction to reduce the number of fetuses, saying that they would put it in God's hands. The obstetricians primarily responsible for the medical care of the babies were Dr. Karen Drake and Dr. Paula Mahone. Alexis and Nathan have cerebral palsy although Nathan received spinal surgery in November, 2005 in order to help his walking abilities.
