Octuplet Mother: Single, used sperm donor for all the kids

I got this through Perz and here:

Did we know this already? Or is the plot thickening? I didn't read all the threads below.

  • From Perez:

    When you need some juice?..go to the nosey neighbors!

    Some savvy reporting unearthed more crazy stuff about the momma who gave birth to octuplets earlier in the week.

    A neighbor revealed that the momma's six kiddies AND the 8 new babies were made with sperm from one donor:

    "She is single. She used a sperm donor, someone she knew, who donated sperm a long time ago. He donated the sperm for the first six kids and she used his frozen sperm for these one. I don't think the sperm donor knows about these eight kids. He was not involved."

    This woman is insane!!!!!!!

    The blabber, who asked to remain anonymous, went on to say:

    "From what I heard she likes kids, she wants a jillion kids. She even lied to the doctors who impregnated her?. We should find out who the doctor is and where the money came from because this is irresponsible. The girl seemed a little off - and I don't want to be paying for her kids.""

    And, there seems to be some confusion about the woman's age and her status.

    The latest now is that she is indeed single (aged 33) and it is her father that is going to Iraq, to support the huge family.

    According to the neighbor, the parents are very supportive of their daughter and even lost their own home in an effort to support her. "The parents lost their house supporting their daughter," the neighbor went on. "They actually bought this house for her, but then they lost their house supporting her and her kids and they had to move in with her. And now her father has to go back to Iraq to earn more money to support her. Her father either works as a truck driver or an interpreter [in Iraq]."

    As to whether the mother herself works, the neighbor says: "She's a professional student and I want to know where the money's coming from to do this. Maybe she's using her student loans to do it."

    This is some crazy, crazy stuff, if it's indeed true.

    Is this why the family has stayed out of the spotlight?

  • I think the the Grandmother is nuts, too. Stop opening your mouth already. Particularly if this mother is mentally ill.

    An exerpt: 

    Angela Suleman said her daughter always had trouble conceiving and underwent in vitro fertilization treatments because her fallopian tubes are "plugged up."

    There were frozen embryos left over after her previous pregnancies and her daughter didn't want them destroyed, so she decided to have more children.

    Her mother and doctors have said the woman was told she had the option to abort some of the embryos and, later, the fetuses. She refused.

    Her mother said she does not believe her daughter will have any more children.

    "She doesn't have any more (frozen embryos), so it's over now," she said. "It has to be."

    Nadya Suleman wanted to have children since she was a teenager, "but luckily she couldn't," her mother said.

    "Instead of becoming a kindergarten teacher or something, she started having them, but not the normal way," he mother said.

    Her daughter's obsession with children caused Angela Suleman considerable stress, so she sought help from a psychologist, who told her to order her daughter out of the house.

    "Maybe she wouldn't have had so many kids then, but she is a grown woman," Angela Suleman said. "I feel responsible and I didn't want to throw her out."

    This entire situation makes me sick. Who in their right mind okayed any of the first six pregnancies? How the blazes do any of those situations more or less make her a candidate for IVF/ chemically assisted pregnancies?

    The mother and her parents are just all effed up mentally. And I think that the physician or physicians that was/were involved in the first six pregnancies should have his medical license pulled, pronto.

    Ditto.  This is horrible.  The doctor is a criminal.

    Well, that would be telling

    This applies, that is, if the prior six pregnancies were not naturally conceived and an RE was involved.

    Anything could be involved here, if there was no RE involved and if a normal pregnancy was the story in all prior six pregnancies.

    However, a naturally conceived octuplet litter?

    The odds are very very very slim on that one. Something stinks on ice there and where are the ethics involved here? What RE in his or her right mind will implant eight embryos? I have never heard of implanting eight.

    This entire case of the octuplet mother should be criminally investigated. Something isn't adding up.
