Nadya Suleman's Dad Speaks Up
Ed Doud, the father of the octuplet mom Nadya Suleman, broke the silence during a nationally televised interview with the one and only Oprah Winfrey.
During their talk, Doud explained how he heard the news about his daughter’s pregnancy, how the family is dealing with the situation and even shared some emotional moments.
The Grandpa the 14 says, "You know, she needs help. I say to everybody now, people, we do need help. Do not punish my daughter for what she had done and do not punish the babies, because they were given by God."
While Doud defended the Web site that was created to help support the family, he called Suleman, 33, and the fertility specialist who implanted six embryos, “absolutely irresponsible.” He also opened up about how the family has to have food stamps to help them get by.
Doud just wants the best for his family and truly desires one main thing. “To stay healthy…and to have my grandchildren-all of them-to be healthy, and the mother to finish her schooling and start working. We all could support this family.”
