Oprah Winfrey has given Rozonno and Mia McGhee $250,000 to spend at Walmart, along with a honeymoon in Las Vegas, after seeing the above photo of the couple and their sextuplets.

The McGhees are reportedly the first family in Columus, Ohio to have sextuplets, and not only have they suffered financially, but the couple revealed the heartache they went through when Mia gave birth to twins who died within days of their delivery a few years back.

Oprah was very sympathetic to their case, and not only did she surprise the couple with the spending money at Walmart, but she also introduced them to Celine Dion! Celine, who recently welcomed twin boys, gave the couple all the details on their four-night honeymoon at Caesars Palace, and she also presented them with front row seats to her concert. Not wanting to leave her guests out, Oprah also gave everyone in the audience two tickets to Dion's show and two free nights at Caesars Palace...
