San Gabriel Valley

Fourteen children is a lot

The media descended today on the Whittier home of the woman who gave birth to octuplets — with six children ages 2 to 7 already at home. The Times puts it delicately that "her marital status is unknown," but the woman's mother, Angela Suleman, spoke to the Times and confirmed that fertility treatments were involved. Suleman also said that her daughter's father would be returning to Iraq to help support the family, apparently by working as a contractor.
