Two more of the world's longest surviving octuplets have been discharged from a Southern California hospital. Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center says it sent home two of Nadya Suleman's babies, Maliyah and Nariyah, Saturday afternoon.

The two girls, each weighing about 5 pounds 2 ounces, will join their six older siblings and two infant boys who were released Tuesday night. The remaining four babies remain at the hospital and are doing well.

Hospital officials say the discharge was private at Suleman's request.

The first two octuplets were greeted by hundreds of onlookers at Nadya Suleman's new home in the Los Angeles suburb of La Habra on Tuesday.
