New mama of octuplets, Nadya Suleman, gave birth to her multiples last week bringing the total number in her brood to 14. The 33-year-old already had six children aged 2 to 7, prior to this pregnancy and hit hard financial times last year. All of the children are said to be a result of IVF from donor sperm. This story has sparked a lot of controversy, but what's your opinion?
I had to do a double take when I saw this — and I was prepared for an Angelina impersonator and not the pillow-lipped fan of motherhood herself. During SNL's weekend update about the woman who just gave birth to octuplets, "Angelina" shows up out of nowhere to see if there are any babies left for her. Or Amy Poehler's newborn. Whatever.
Eight might be more babies than many mamas can handle, but for the Southern California woman who just birthed octuplets — it appears she already had her hands full. Recent reports say that the newborn multiples have six older siblings (including one set of twins).
The children and their mother live with the grandparents who are overwhelmed and caring for the young charges while their daughter and the infants remain hospitalized. No comment was made as to whether or not the mother took fertility drugs.
