    The mother who gave birth to octuplets - giving her a grand total of 14 children - has said her babies are 'miraculous'.

    But as more details emerged about her massive family, neighbours raised questions over whether her children will have a father in their lives at all.

    The woman's mother also confirmed the octuplets were indeed the result of fertility treatment - and said her daughter had had the opportunity to abort one or more of the foetuses, as is common with multiple pregnancies, but turned it down.

    It was also revealed that the woman's father - a contractor - may be forced to return to work in Iraq to help support his 14 grandchildren.


    Residents in the quiet LA cul-de-sac where the unidentified mother lives said they have never seen the woman – who they said looks to be Hispanic - with anyone who looked like a boyfriend or husband.

    A neighbour who gave her name only as Verda said: 'I don’t think she is married or has a partner.

    'The only male I’ve seen over there in the two years or so she has lived there is her father, who must be in his 60s.' ...

    At least the family in Arkansas, who are perennially criticized for the size of the family, manage to provide the children with two parents.

    Maybe the father went out for a pack of cigarettes, like Nelson Muntz's did.

    What kind of a doctor would start a woman on fertility treatments without knowing if there was going to be a father in their life? Isn't that some sort of malpractice?

    It seems strange that they would do so for a woman who already has 6 children as well.
