Octuplets' mom hires firm to consider offers

The mother of the world's longest-living octuplets is being deluged with offers for book deals, TV shows and other proposals, but has not decided what she might do other than care for her children, her newly hired spokeswoman has said.

Hundreds of requests have been made since Nadya Suleman gave birth to six boys and two girls a week ago, said Joann Killeen of publicist the Killeen Furtney Group.

"She's the most sought after mom in the world right now," Killeen said. "Everyone wants to talk to her."

Suleman is still in hospital with her children at the Kaiser Permanente's Bellflower Medical Center in Los Angeles, the United States.

Some of the deals and requests for interviews involve offers to pay, said Killeen. She didn't reveal the amounts offered, but noted that raising eight babies will be expensive, adding that Suleman plans to carefully review her financial opportunities.

"Right now her top priority is to be the best mom she can be to all her children," she said. "She's hired us to manage all of those opportunities."

She discounted reports that Suleman was to host a television show on parenting but said she did want to tell her story to the world eventually. "As soon as she's able, she will tell her story, and it's an amazing story," said Killeen.

Suleman, a 33-year-old single mother, already had six children when she gave birth to her octuplets on January 26.

Her babies continue to grow stronger, the hospital said. In seven other documented octuplet births, at least one baby died within a week.
