Harris Family Gets Extreme Makeover

A Meridian native and her family have received a brand new house as part of ABC's Extreme Makeover-Home Edition.

You may remember Newscenter 11 sharing the story of Chris and Diamond Harris who had sextuplets in 2002.

Diamond is a Meridian native. Chris is originally from west Alabama. The couple now resides in Birmingham.

The family of nine was living in a 2,000 square foot home in Birmingham until the makeover team arrived in February.

"So you guys really do have your hands full, huh?" asked team leader Ty Pennington after surprising the Harris family at their home.

"All the time," said Chris.

"Let me tell you what's going to happen. You guys are going on vacation for a week to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla.," yelled Pennington, who was met with a chorus of approving screams.

Ty even had TV mom, actress Florence Henderson of the Brady Bunch, to babysit the toddlers while mom and dad had a night on the town, and the Muppets also stopped by to help.

The episode airs Sunday at 7:00 p.m. on ABC and WTOK-TV.
