    Two more of Nadya Suleman's octuplets were released Saturday from Kaiser Permanente's Bellflower Medical Center, according to the hospital, bringing to four the number of babies that are at their new La Habra home.

    Maliyah Angel (Baby B), who is 5 pounds 1.5 ounces, and Nariyah Angeles (Baby D), who is 5 pounds 2 ounces, went home this afternoon, according to a hospital statement.

    Both infants are able to bottle feed, are gaining weight and are able to maintain their body temperature.

    "The discharge was private at the request of the mother," according to the statement.

    Noah Angel and Isaiah Angel were discharged Tuesday amid a mob of paparazzi and onlookers, and no police escort.

    All four were taken to the family's recently purchased home in La Habra.

    Suleman, 33, an unemployed single mother, gave birth to eight babies who were nine weeks premature Jan. 26.

    "This is another important milestone in the care of the octuplets," said Dr. Mandhir Gupta, a neonatologist at the medical center. "Each day, these babies bring joy to our staff members along with a reminder of their role in the historic birth and care of the octuplets."

    The babies are the world's longest-surviving set of octuplets. She has six other children, ages 2 to 7.

    Meantime, in an online video, Suleman revealed more details about the father of all 14 of her children but vowed never to identify him.

    She said the father is in his late 30s, lived in California, but was not American and looks like her son Elijah.

    "I'm sorry for all this mess and I hope he isn't scared it'll come out because it won't," she said in the RadarOnline.com video. "As far as I'm concerned, I'll never disclose who he is."

    Speaking while propped up in a bed, Suleman said she called the father two weeks before giving birth and he was speechless.

    "He couldn't talk, he couldn't even utter a word to me," she said. "He was so angry at the doctor ... He said, 'Doesn't that doctor know you have five (sic) kids already?'"

    The remaining four octuplets are at the hospital but are continuing to progress well, according to Kaiser.
