An update to the story about the California woman who gave birth to octuplets
We now have learned via an interview with her mother that she has six other children and never expected to have eight more when she took fertility treatment.
Grandma says that they all appear healthy.
The Los Angeles Times reports that grandma says that her daughter had the embryos implanted last year, resulting in the eight births. She already has a set of twins. Yikes!
Mom declined to have the number of embryos reduced when she discovered she was carrying multiples, the Times reported. The six older siblings range from ages 7 to 2, according to the newspaper.
Boy, does mom have her hands full!
Her husband, a contract worker, is due to return to Iraq.
The six boys and two girls –– ranging in weight from 1 pound, 8 ounces to 3 pounds, 4 ounces — are doing well following their Caesarean-section delivery, nine weeks premature.
What would you do if you had 14 kids?
