Octuplets Born Kicking And Screaming In California

UPDATE: Just thought of this: How many legs does an octuplet have?

Happening only twice in the world, eight little babies were born alive and well to parents in California.

The mother, who was not identified, gave birth to six boys and two girls weighing between 1.8 pounds and 3.4 pounds, doctors at Kaiser Permanante hospital told KCAL9.

“It’s a surprise,” Dr. Karen Maples said. “Eight newborns are in stable condition and they’re doing quite well.”

Kaiser spokeswoman Myra Suarez said she could not release any information about the mother, including her condition or whether she used fertility drugs. Such drugs make multiple births more likely.

“They are all doing the best they can,” Suarez told the AP.

I’d be kicking and screaming too if I found out I had to live in California.
