After going through tough times, Nadya Suleman, has now openly admitted that getting the in-vitro fertilization treatment that resulted in the birth of her octuplets was a mistake.
Nadya, 36, was a single parent of six children and living with her mother, when she decided to get pregnant again and add 8 more kids to her brood back in 2009.
During an interview on Dateline NBC on Friday, show anchor Tamron Hall asked: “Looking back, was it a mistake to go back and have IVF after having six children already?”
“Yes, Absolutely. Was I was in my lucid state of mind? I don’t know at that point. I could rationalise myself away and I’m good at rationalizing,” She said
When asked if she gave serious thought three years ago to how she would provide for such a large family, Nadya gave a sobering answer.
‘I think at that time I was in denial,’ she said.
In another exclusive interview on NBC, Nadya admitted to Today co-host Matt Lauer that she’s struggling to take care of her 14 children and has had to rely on government provided food stamps to feed her brood for the last two months.
“I still am working as hard as I possibly can to support them, I made that call reluctantly. I feel ashamed, but who cares how I feel? It’s 100% about my children.”
Right after Suleman famously gave birth to her octuplets, she vowed on national television that she would never go on the welfare, and has a rock-solid plan to take care of her children without government support.
She is now receiving $2,000 per month in food stamps from the state of California.
She recently posed topless in a British magazine but was only paid $8,000, and the money quickly vanished as she used it to pay her backlog of bills.
Somebody should bitch-slap this woman. All she wanted in the first place was to make those kids her meal ticket. She was fantasizing on becoming famous with the hope that TV stations will be running after her for interviews and hope to land a reality TV deal.
Government should take those kids away from her!
