Suleman Octuplets (Photos + Video)

Nadya Suleman, the woman who gave birth to octuplets last month has introduced NBC’s Ann Curry to all her new-born babies.


Suleman had told the news correspondent in an interview that she was not receiving welfare.

Publicist Michael Furtney said Suleman didn’t consider the food stamps and supplemental security income to be welfare.

“In Nadya’s view, the money that she gets from the food stamp program … and the resources disabilities payments she gets for her three children are not welfare,” he said. “They are part of programs designed to help people with need, and she does not see that as welfare.”

According to the Los Angeles Times, Suleman gets $490 a month in food stamps. Three of her first children also get federal SSI because they are disabled, the Times reported.
