The Matthews octuplets were up until today the only octuplet children in the world. However, the Matthews octuplets are now facing some competition. Some octuplets born in a Los Angeles-based Kaiser Permanente hospital are the second set of octuplets to exist, right behind the Matthews octuplets. The family which gave born to the new octuplets has yet to release their family name.
The Matthews octuplets’ competition were born this morning, weighing in anywhere from 2 pounds to nearly 4 pounds. All of the new octuplets are said to be doing very well. Staff at the hospital prepared in prior weeks for the pregnancy. Seeing as there was a high risk for trouble, the staff didn’t want to fall victim to unanticipated circumstances.
More information about the new octuplets now second to the Matthews octuplets will become available in the coming days. We are happy to know all the children are doing well and hope the family will get some time to spend with one another. The Matthews octuplets’ family has yet to comment on their newfound “competitors.”
