Octuplets mom says she's paying for new house

miércoles, 11 de marzo de 2009 |

The Southern California mother of octuplets said in a video posted online Wednesday that she — not her parents — is paying for the four-bedroom, three-bath home where she plans to raise her brood.

In the video posted on RadarOnline.com, Nadya Suleman disputed earlier remarks by the house's listing agent, who said her father was buying the home.

Suleman said she made the initial payment on the house, which she was leasing with an option to buy. Her parents, she said, "had nothing to do with it."

Prudential Realty agent Mike Patel did not immediately return a phone message early Wednesday seeking comment.

Suleman made her remarks during a recorded walkthrough of the 2,583-square-foot house in La Habra, about 20 miles east of Los Angeles, where she intends live with the octuplets and her six other children.

The four-bedroom, three-bath home was listed for $564,900.

She said the money for the home was coming from "opportunities" she has been offered, but did not elaborate on what they were. She also said she had been hoping to receive some donations to support the children's care, but had not gotten any.

Suleman gave birth to the octuplets on Jan. 26. They were born nine weeks premature but are the world's longest-surviving set of octuplets.

Suleman said in the video that all but two were healthy enough to leave the hospital and that they would be released two at a time after hospital officials inspected the new home.
