(Newser) – The first two Suleman octuplets will be released from the hospital soon, People reports. “Four of them are ready to come home now. They’ve been ready for days,” Nadya Suleman told Dr. Phil, but hospital officials are waiting to inspect her new, bigger home before releasing the babies, spaced out in pairs over a few days.

“It feels like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders,” Suleman said. “It feels like things are finally falling into place.” Is one of those things the infamous sale of her birth tape? TMZ insists the tape was for sale—because managing editor Harvey Levin saw it and was asked to make an offer. The agency peddling the edited video has since put the deal on hold.
