Quintuplets to return home to Las Vegas

CREATED Sep. 16, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A big step for the Las Vegas couple who recently welcomed five babies into their family at once.

Mom Evonne Derrico said doctors will start the paperwork Monday for her babies to be transferred to a hospital closer to home.

Right now, the quintuplets are being cared for at a hospital in Mesa, Arizona.

The three girls and two boys were born earlier this month.

Mom said all five babies are healthy and are breathing on their own.

The Derrico's already have four other kids at home, and said they still want to have more children in the future.
