The Hanselman sextuplets were born at Akron General Medical Center in Akron, Ohio on February 26, 2004, and are the first set of sextuplets to have been born in their state. Their parents, Jennifer and Keith Hanselman, live in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, and had a 4-year-old son at the time that the sextuplets were born. Jennifer, who formerly worked as an advertising copywriter, wrote a book about her experience of becoming a stay-at-home mother to seven young children in 2006, titled Party of Nine: The Triumphs and Traumas of Raising Sextuplets + One (ISBN 978-1424313464).

- Kyle Allen - 2 lb 6 oz
- Logan James - 2 lb 8 oz
