Sweet Home Sextuplets Season 2 premieres May 28th: New photos & social media info for the Waldrop Family

Sweet Home Sextuplets Season 2 4

Sweet Home Sextuplets Season 2 is officially a go. Though eagle-eyed fans have known about the filming for months, we’ve just gotten official confirmation from TLC — including a season premiere date, plus the first trailer for the new episodes.

The Outdaughtered-inspired series is set to return May 28th, and will be, per the network’s own press release, “a season of firsts.”

It’s been a few months since the six-episode first season debuted, so here’s a quick refresher to catch you up. Courtney and Eric Waldrop, of Albertville AL, already had three children — Saylor, born in 2010, and twins Bridge and Wales, born in 2012 — but wanted more.

A miscarriage convinced Courtney that she needed to begin fertility treatments, which she did. (Click here for our feature on Courtney’s pregnancy, including details on her fertility drugs and exactly how unlikely it is to conceive sextuplets.)

Though she and Eric would later say they only wanted one more child, the couple was stunned when Courtney’s first ultrasound revealed eight healthy fetuses. Two of those failed before the next sonogram, but Courtney carried the remaining six to term.

OK — that’s the basic premise of the show out of the way. So why exactly will Sweet Home Sextuplets Season 2 be a season of firsts?

For starters, the sextuplets themselves — Alabama-born babies Tag, Rivers, Rayne, Rawlings, Layke, and Blu — have all turned one. (The sextuplets’ actual birthday is December 11th, 2017.)

The joys of toddlerhood mean viewers are in store for a lot of first steps, first standing-up head bonks, first words — and probably the sextuplets’ first fights, as well.

As for the rest of the surprise? We’ve edited the press release for Sweet Home Sextuplets‘ second season below. (You can still read the full press release here.)

It’s a season of firsts as the Waldrop babies turn one! Blu, Layke, Rawlings, Rayne, Rivers and Tag are developing distinct personalities, taking first steps, speaking first words and sharing milestones….Now that they are bigger and more mobile, they get to play with their older brothers Saylor, Wales and Bridge and are keeping their parents, Courtney and Eric, on their toes.

As a full-time mom to nine children, Courtney is determined to manage the household chaos herself, and she will be tested with a family flu outbreak, concerns about the babies’ development and whether Layke will need to have surgery to correct his heart condition. Desperate to keep everything in line, will Courtney be able to juggle everything without breaking down? Plus, the walls are closing in on Courtney, and she realizes one solution is to move to a bigger home. But Eric wants to stay put and remodel, which could add even more strain to the Waldrops’ already jampacked agenda.

No offense to the copywriters at TLC, but I think calling Courtney a “full-time mom” is underselling what she does just a little bit. I’m a full-time parent to *one* child, and that work is straight-up exhausting.

I think I’d rather juggle flaming bowling pins while spinning plates and defusing a bomb blindfolded than try to raise nine kids. The Waldrops’ oldest is seven. Courtney puts in the work.

Additionally, here’s the very first Sweet Home Sextuplets Season 2 trailer. “Chaos” seems a pretty appropriate word:

Beyond that, whet your appetite for the new season with a few of the latest social media pics the Waldrops have made public. First up — what else? — it’s the sextuplets, all pajama-ed up in a snapshot from just a few days ago:

The week before that, the six siblings took in a movie at home:

Courtney couldn’t resist a caption: “Look how cute this is!!!??? [Our] own personal movie theater??”

Finally, here are Courtney, Eric, and their oldest three children, wearing their church best on Easter Sunday:

If you aren’t already, you can follow along with the Waldrops on social media. They’ve dubbed their children “God’s Divine Nine,” and you’ll find all of them on Facebook and Instagram.

Plus, you can now stream the entirety of the show’s first season before Sweet Home Sextuplets Season 2 premieres: May 28th at 10 PM on TLC.
