Last of octuplets released from SoCal hospital

LOS ANGELES (AP) " Nadya Suleman has all her babies home.

A spokeswoman from Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center says the last of the world's longest surviving set of octuplets was released from the suburban Los Angeles hospital Monday night.

Socorro (so-KOHR-roe) Serrano says Jonah has gone home to join his brothers and sisters, nearly 2 1/2 months after being born premature.

Jonah was the smallest of the octuplets at birth, weighing just 1 pound 8 ounces. Hospital officials say he now weighs 4 pounds, 10 ounces and is able to bottle feed.

Suleman already had six children, ages 2 to 7, before giving birth to the octuplets. The unmarried and unemployed woman has said all 14 children were conceived through in vitro fertilization.
