$750,000!! It was an accident. No wonder medical costs are so high. I can see $100,000, but $750,000? thats way too much.

Superman do you even know that the BABIES were given nearly 10000 times the amount of Herperin, which is a blood thinner, it turned their blood to water, they are lucky the Quaids did'nt lose both kids. I would sue to make sure it did not happen again to any one

It still was an accident. A non celebrity would have been awarded between $50-$100,000 dollars. (Its a standard settlement). Because of their "celebrity" they were awarded an outrages amount.

The twins look healthy and happy, and Dennis & Kimberly are great parents. The fact that Kimberly used a surrogate doesn't make her a bad mother. On the contrary, Kim had 5 miscarriages before using a surrogate to carry the twins,which were conceived with Kimberly's eggs and Dennis' sperm. To go through so much to have children is very unselfish. The dog is adorable too.

They also went through a horrible ordeal and deserve to enjoy their family and have a joyous Christmas and New Years. I have met Dennis and found him to be down to earth, friendly and very considerate of his fans.

To Bella: Quaid cheats and you know it. Heck, everyone in Hollywood does.

As for their surrogate babies, Ellen, I think to go through so much trouble and money to have your own DNA reproduced is selfish. There are thousands of babies and young children who need homes. They could have adopted.

Those kids are ugly. I'm sorry for what happened to them but there is nothing cute about them. They look like something is wrong with them. The dog on the other hand is adorable.

First of all, the biggest issue in the lawsuit was that both doses of the drug came in very similar bottles, meaning the company made human error even more possible.

I don't blame them for using a surrogate- celebrities adopting, can you imagine the pregnant teenagers who would be clamoring to have their child adopted by a celebrity? Then only to sue for their baby back knowing they could get mad cash? It just sounds too sticky, I'd probably stick with my own DNA too.

Oh and pugs aren't supposed to fly, many airlines won't fly non-snouted dogs (like pugs, boston terriers, shih tzus, etc). Interesting. Very cute pug though!

God do know of you people complaining about the money they got (Superman) actually read REAL news? The Quaids were not suing the hospital. They went after the drug manufactures for how the bottles are labeled and so forth. Cedars coughed up the money on THEIR own, to head off a possible lawsuit from Dennis and his wife. Here is the thing though, it will not protect them from the children when they are older from bringing suit against the hospital. So before you go about how they got this because of being celebs you might want to oh I don't know read a RELIABLE news outlet. Oh and considering the medical costs involved with saving these kids 750,000 is a small price.
