  • I figured so. It isnt like a single mom with 6 kids is going to have the money for fertility treatments or even seek them LOL. Anyone whose been a single mom knows they wouldnt. Its none of our business anyway, no more then if it would be to know my neighbor had 8 abortions. I bet no one would 1 ever know and 2 ever question it publicly.

  • what exactly is your question? BTW...the 'father' would be the woman's father not the babies' daddy. He is getting ready to return to Iraq so he can support his daughter and her brood.

  • Katherine, the story I read mentions nothing about a 'husband'. Here are even more details

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1131343/Revealed-Octuplets-family-filed-bankruptcy-fled-home.html

    quote from the article:

    She also told the Los Angeles Times that her husband - the babies' grandfather - is returning to work as a contractor in Iraq to help support his rapidly-expanded family.
    Mrs Suleman said her daughter had embryos implanted last year, and 'they all happened to take'.

  • It's the babies' GRANDFATHER. The woman's FATHER. Not a husband to the mother and father of the 14 children!
