HOUSTON, Texas – A Pearland couple was able to take home two of their sextuplets on Thursday, a spokesperson for the Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women said.

Lauren and David Perkins’ three boys and three girls were born at Texas Children’s Hospital on April 23.  

The sextuplets were born 10 weeks premature and were delivered by a team of 35 doctors. The largest baby weighed 2 pounds, 15 ounces. The smallest baby was just 1 pound, 10 ounces.

The babies are named: Andrew, Benjamin, Levi, Allison, Caroline and Leah.

Hospital officials said Benjamin and Caroline got out of the hospital Thursday afternoon.

Andrew was being completely bottle fed and Allison is learning how to take a bottle. Both could go home in the next 10 days, hospital officials said.

As for Levi and Leah they still need help breathing and will need to grow more before leaving the hospital. 

The hospital says all six are getting stronger every day.
