HOUSTON—A Pearland couple was able to take home the last of their sextuplets this week, said a spokesman for Texas Children's Hospital.

Leah, the smallest of six babies, was the last to go home and join her siblings after she was released from the hospital Monday afternoon. The hospital said it hosted a "send-off celebration" for the family.

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.

The Perkins family and Texas Children's Hospital early Tuesday released new video of the babies together.
