Queens Sextuplets Doing Okay, Have Names
Digna Carpio, whose impending sextuplets were all over the papers last month, gave birth on October 6 and a news conference with her husband Victor and son Jhancarlos today. Justin, Danelia, Jezreel, Genesis, Joel and Jadon Carpio (previously called A, B, C, D, E, and F, per the Sydney Morning Herald) are in the preemie ward but doing fine. As in previous reports, the proud parents expressed concerns with money; Queens councilmember Tony Avella has launched a collection drive for baby supplies.
