Octomom and 14 kids Now On Food Stamps


Nadya “Octomom” Suleman is back in the news. This time for opting to accept food stamps to feed her large brood.

Barely a month ago Suleman made headlines for posing almost naked in a British magazine just to be able to support all of her 14 kids. Now she has come under fire again — this time for her decision to take government assistance to help feed her children.

On the state program, Suleman will get $2,000 a month for her large family and because she earns less than $119,000 a year.

Her detractors immediately went up in arms about the fact she is now taking government money to pay for, what they consider, were too many babies in the first place.

Suleman sat down with Matt Lauer on the ‘Today’ show and explained that her choice to accept food stamps was not an easy one, saying, “I made that call reluctantly. I needed to remove my pride… I still am [working] as hard as I can to support them.”

Suleman hopes to be off public assistance in two months.
