BELLFLOWER, Calif. -- The world's second-ever octuplets were born Monday at Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center, and doctors said the six boys and two girls are doing well.

"We are very delighted to say that eight newborns are in stable condition and they're doing quite well," Dr. Karen Maples told KCAL9/CBS2, which later reported that two of the infants were on respirators.

Kaiser spokeswoman Mayra Suarez said the birth began at 10:43 a.m., and the babies range from 1 pound 8 ounces to 3 pounds 4 ounces. She said the mother has asked to remain anonymous.

Maples told the station that doctors were hopeful the babies would all survive, but the first 72 hours are always the most critical time.
