California Southern California’s octuplets mother may be moving to a new home and getting help to raise her brood.
Nadya Suleman’s father Ed Doud is purchasing a $564,900 house in the city of La Habra in a deal is expected to close Friday, said Prudential Realty listing agent Mike Patel.
In a related development, television’s Dr. Phil McGraw said Monday that Suleman will accept a volunteer group’s offer of nursing care for her children.
Suleman has been living in a Whittier home that is owned by her mother. But that property is being foreclosed on because her mother is more than $20,000 behind in mortgage payments. Doud is divorced from her mother.
The 2,583-square-foot house in La Habra, about 20 miles east of Los Angeles, has four bedrooms, three baths and a large, fenced-in backyard. The master bedroom features a walk-in closet.
Nadya Suleman gave birth to octuplets on Jan. 26 after already having six other children.
Public sentiment on the birth took a sharp turn when it was learned all 14 of Suleman’s children were conceived through in vitro fertilization, and Suleman is unemployed and single.
