    The odds of this being a fertility drug induced multiple pregnancy is enormous. When you get to 8 doesn't it make you think more in terms of a litter than a human birth? I do sympathize with couples who are having trouble trying to conceive and it isn't as if the parents won't love these children nor that the children will necessarily be damaged but I find it a little bit creepy.

    I think they will make a few million dollars in endorsement deals plus sponsorship.

    Look at the Jon and Kate plus 8 on TLC.
    They are not hurting with the book deals, and cable syndication.

    Their health insurance company is crying right now... 8 babies, I wouldn't know what to do with myself. I have a eight month old and I am still not getting any sleep.

    very cute
    I heard that news just this morning, and I'm happy for the family. What a big family in a snap. I too dreamed of having that many babies in a pop. I wonder what will become them when they grew up - very very cute indeed.
