Octuplets’ mom may get home, help

Associated Press

WHITTIER, Calif. – 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 the family is more than $20,000 behind in mortgage payments.

The 2,583-square-foot house in La Habra has four bedrooms, three baths and a large, fenced-in backyard.
