Her family has told agents she needs cash from deals such as nappy sponsorship - she will get through 250 nappies a week over the next few months - and the agents will gauge public reaction to her story. A veteran from the ICM agency said: “If she wins over Oprah or Diane Sawyer, she will have the world at her feet.”
Pimping out your babies...that is probably the main reason I am against extreme multiple births. There is no way the majority of people can afford 6 or 8 babies at once without some kind of help, not to mention that it's humanly impossible to adequately care for that many newborns alone, especially if they have health issues. You need shifts of people, most of whom are expected to help out for free. Did this woman just assume people will be willing to help out because SHE chose to have 14 kids under the age of 7? Did she go into this without a care as to how she would feed and clothe them because she expected "corporate sponsorships?" Honestly, if you can't feed, clothe and care for 14 children without assistance, don't have 14 children.

I'm also curious as to how is this unemployed, self-proclaimed "career student" is paying for her medical care and that of the babies?

Today Show said this morning the hospital bill alone, would exceed 3 million by the time they are able to leave the hospital.

She will probably get it in some form or another, and for the babies sake, I hope she does.

They don't need pity, they need an enriching and stimulating environment, a decent amount of time with their caregiver, and I don't see how a single mother can deliver that to 14 kids.

Those 8 kids will probably have all the problems of premature babies, with the problems of being an octuplet.

This entire story sounds horrific.

This is unfathomable.

The woman's mother has apparently said her daughter is obsessed with children.

Yes, I can see that. Does this woman realize that these children are tiny little humans who will become fully functioning people? They will become teenagers? And then adults? Does she have a concept of how they will fit into her life once they're beyond cooing and diapers?

Jesus, couldn't she have just become a kindergarten teacher?

Who is footing this $3 million bill? Mr. and Mrs. Taxpayer?

Was this woman not given a psych evaluation when she insisted on having 8 embryos implanted? Somebody investigate the fertility doc!

I can't sort out the rumors from what the woman's mother is coming out in saying, but I've heard rumors from "she worked at an IVF clinic so got it done for free/got a discount" or "she had it done by some shady dude in Mexico."

Who knows. It's baffling. Those poor kids. I feel bad for the non-octuplet kids, who will be lucky to get even five minutes of one-on-one time with good ol' mom for years to come.

Last night on Sat. night live, they had a joke about Angelina Jolie wanting to adopt some of the babies. But remember you read it here first when I posted it earlier in this thread! Seriously I do think some people like Angelina and this person have an obsession with collecting children-maybe the Duggars too but they use religion and 'quiverfull' as an excuse- but in any case I worry if there is any way every single child of these people can get enough love and attention, money aside. Can you imagine the head cases that may be turned out of these hoards once some have grown up feeling slighted?

Kate's probably fuming she's got competition now! I can see this new mother going for book, TV and movie rights just to make enough money to feed her kids. Her poor parents having all those bodies in their house!!! One kid was enough for me and all I wanted really, I cannot even imagine why someone would want 6 kids let alone end up with 16, 18, etc!!

I don't think any of Angelina's kids are going to cost the taxpayers anything...
