(Newser) – A swarm of spectators and paparazzi met octuplet mom Nadya Suleman as she arrived home from the hospital with two of her babies last night, the Los Angeles Times reports. Onlookers clung to her car to glimpse 7-week-old Noah Angel and Isaiah Angel. The boys were released from the Kaiser Permanente medical center earlier that evening.

“It is always rewarding whenever a premature infant goes home as a healthy baby," said a doctor from Kaiser Permanente, which determined Suleman would be able to provide the care the boys need. The babies' release had been held up while Suleman made necessary repairs to her new home, and arranged for help to care for the infants. The other two girls and four boys are still in the hospital and are progressing well, according to doctors.
