The home where Nadya Suleman, the mother of octuplets, and her six other children have been living with her parents is in pre-foreclosure, according to records.

A default notice was filed Feb. 9 for a loan that is $23,224 past due. The notice lists a projected sale date of June 9, according to the Web site foreclosureradar.com.

Angela Suleman, Nadya’s mother, bought the home in March 2006 for $605,000 with a loan from IndyMac Bank for $453,750.

Angela Suleman could not be reached for comment Wednesday. In an interview last month, she said that she had filed for bankruptcy and lost one home to foreclosure but said her finances had improved and she had paid her debts.

In an interview with Us magazine, Nadya Suleman acknowledged that the three-bedroom, one-bathroom house “is too small” for her 14 children. “We’re going to have to move,” she said.

It’s unclear, though, how she plans to support the family.
