From whence sprang Octomom...
The father of octuplet spawner Nadya Suleman questioned his own daughter's sanity and agreed that she needs major help—financially, at least—during a recent sit-down with Oprah Winfrey.
"That's a very good question," responded Ed Doud, Suleman's dad and a grandfather of 14, when the queen of daytime asked whether his daughter is mentally stable.
"Now I'm no psychiatrist, but I question her mental situation," he said, adding that both his daughter and her fertility doctor were "absolutely irresponsible" to allow her to become that pregnant.
Suleman, 33, who already had six children (three of whom have special needs), gave birth to octuplets Jan. 26 in Bellflower, Calif., after undergoing in vitro fertilization.
