Six years ago, Rozonno and Mia McGhee of Columbus Ohio, posed for a family photograph alongside their sextuplets – Rozonno Jr., Josiah, Madison, Olivia, Isaac and Elijah.

Almost instantly, the image captured by photographer Brian Killian and his wife, Jillian, broke the Internet.

“Those children are so lovable,” the photographer of 25 years told ABC News. “They just want to hug you. They’re full of love and full of joy. They were great.”

After appearing on “The Oprah Show” in 2011, the McGhee family decided to share their lives with the entire world during the OWN reality show, “6 Little McGhees.”

Now, at the age of six, those six little McGhees have a new reality show titled “Growing Up McGhee.” And for old times sake, they teamed up with the Killians to recreate another iconic family portrait. Already, it’s managed to become a trending topic.

Brian Killian said the new photo only took 15 minutes to shoot. He and his wife photographed two siblings at a time, and the final image was pulled together using Photoshop.

“That’s how the original image was done too,” he said.

The photo was commissioned to promote the UP network’s “Growing Up McGhee,” which recently premiered.

The show will document how Rozonno and Mia McGhee balance six children while also running their carpet-cleaning business.

“I think people still remember seeing it six years ago,” Brian Killian told TODAY. “To have six little babies asleep on their dad — that’s a unique portrait.”
