PHOENIX (AP) -- A Tucson woman is resting at a Phoenix hospital after giving birth to quintuplets.

A Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center spokesman says the five babies of Lorena and Enrique Puig include three girls and two boys. They were born Wednesday within four minutes of each other.

The 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.

Lorena Puig carried the babies for 29 weeks.

Banner Good Samaritan is nationally known for the successful delivery of more than 90 multiple births for mothers in and outside of Arizona.
