The mother of the octuplets born last Monday has hired a publicist and is reportedly lining up paid interviews, book deals, and tv specials to document the birth of her octuplets. Despite this, the mother is having financial problems, and on top of that, has 6 other children at home, which includes a set of twins. That makes for a total of 14 children, ranging in age from 8 days to 7 years old. The mother, Nadya Suleman, currently lives in a three bedroom home with her parents and her other six children.

Kate Gosselin appeared on Larry King Live Monday night and stated that she is "Very frightened for this mother." Kate went on to add, "It takes both Jon and I to deal with the "everyday" life of having multiples." Kate said that in the beginning, after her sextuplets were born, she felt as if she had given birth to octuplets over a three year period. Kate said in the beginning, times were hard and they needed all the help they could get, and were not ashamed to take it.
However, now that the Gosselin "tups", as well as the twins, have gotten older, it is mainly Jon and Kate, along with a "family helper", that take care of the children and home keeping. Kate said she wishes Nadya good luck, and had earlier given her blessings. However during the turn of the weeks events, Kate does question why this single mother would want to tackle this enormous responsibility on her own, even with the help of her parents. "There is just not enough of her to spread equally among 14 children, and especially without a father." The octuplet's mother plans to breastfeed all 8 children, which consist of 6 boys and 2 girls.
