Washington, February 17 (ANI): The octuplets’ grandmother has put aside differences with her daughter, who made history after giving birth to six boys and two girls, adding to her previous brood of 6.
Angela Suleman revealed that she was compelled to break the ice with her daughter, Nadya, who conceived all 14 of her babies through in vitro fertilization, after laying her eyes on the eight newborns.
“I was actually very upset that my daughter had gone and done this in-vitro,” CBS quoted Angela as telling Early Show.
“But, after I saw them, you know, I thought, ‘My goodness, these are my grandchildren. They’re so tiny and fragile. I’ll have to be there for them, you know, like I was for the others,”‘ she added.
She further said that her anger was fast disappearing, adding: “I did (resent Nadya), but you know, you can resent your daughter for just so long, and then you see that she’s trying so hard to take care of these children, and she’s a good mother.
” …She’s a very good mother but then she had a good example!
“There must be a reason, you know, why this happened, and that they’re all healthy. That is a miracle, a total miracle.”
Nadya had given birth to the octuplets in late January in a span of five minutes at Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Centre in Los Angeles.
It is believed to be only the second time in history that live octuplets have survived for more than a couple of hours. (ANI)
