PHOENIX (AP) — A Tucson couple is celebrating a big addition to their family: a set of quintuplets.

Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center spokesman Craig Fischer says Lorena Puig (poo-CH’) gave birth Wednesday at a Phoenix hospital to three girls and two boys, who were born within four minutes of each other.

The 29-week-old babies range in weight from 2 pounds, 1.7 ounces to 2 pounds, 8 ounces.


Phoenix Children’s Hospital officials say the quintuplets will likely remain hospitalized for another 10 weeks.
