Despite criticism of having eight babies by in vitro--and not to mention already having six children prior to the newborns--mother Nadya Suleman "has been inundated with offers for media interviews, talk show appearances and jobs as a baby expert," according to ABC News.

Today on Good Morning America, Suleman's spokeswoman--yes, she has a publicist, how Hollywood--Joann Killeen said that "she's very joyful. Nadya is a very balanced and together woman. She's very, very happy and joyful for the miracle of life and the babies." However Suleman's mother told the Associated Press over the weekend that her daughter "has been obsessed with having children since she was a teenager." It was so intense, the mother consulted a psychologist.

The 33-year-old Suleman lives in the Los Angeles suburb of Whittier with her parents, who filed for bankruptcy last March, in a three bedroom home with her 14 children. She gave birth on January 26th.
