Original Octuplet Fam -- All Growed Up

1/28/2009 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A California woman delivered eight babies in five minutes, which is considerably longer than it took America's original octuplet fam -- the Chukwus -- to round up their kids in Manhattan this morning.

I wonder... no one has mentioned the name of the family. The dr's, the hospital all named, but the family? Could they be...ILLEGAL??!

Illegal, nope. Welfare recipient, never married and had OTHER children before she had this latest litter. This madness needs to END! Who the f*** is going to support these damn kids when she can't even support herself. And Who the F*** paid for her invitro? And yes, another minority, because they can't breed them fast enough, it's a recession, y'all and more babies equals more government money. Get that woman a bailout! Quick. F***tards!

Absolutely unbelievable! And the media is acting like this is some pleasant little coincidence?

Nobody Important...what are you talking about. Chukwu was not a single parent, she was married, her husband was the father. No article mentioned any financial difficulty they had. They did use fertility treatments.

The only reason the Chukwu's even have 8 children is because daddy worked at a hospital and STOLE THE FERTILITY DRUGS. Yes, having 8 children is admirable, but Mrs. Chukwu neglected any type of prenatal care, and hid her pregnancy until there were medical problems.

They've had their 15 minutes, but they need to end quickly. Nothing against the kids, but mom and dad are thieves.

Some of us just want a kid and can't get one because of doctor's and pharma's greed, and we don't have friends to steal drugs for us. I'll take 8 kids any day. It's better than none for me!

Uh, TMZ, as far as the Texas family goes, one baby died and seven survived.

This stupidity about "minorities" and "illegals" is rubbish. The family chooses to remain anonymous. Respect their wishes.

Are multiple births only a treasured gift from God when the family is white, Christian and mid-western? I think not.

A child is a blessing from God. It doesn't matter how many. God could have easily put one baby in Mrs. Chukwu's belly and this new anonymous mother of 8, but he put 8 babies in there.
All you bashers and haters saying all this stuff about welfare, poverty and race, y'all need to get a life. What do you have to say about the Duggar family? I guess it is okay for them to have 18 children because they are WHITE!! They also got help from big time corporations and donations and all waht not. So why not bash them?
Shame on you all.

While a child might be considered a "blessing from god" - Eight children come courtesy of a lab and a syringe. This should be illegal. It's gross.

Sorry if the facts offend you, but IF true, then the 'DR" who performed this invitro-fertilization, done in MEXICO should be held ressponsible for the health and welfare of these , uh, 'BLESSINGS FROM GOD" . The rumor on the street is that this family planned to become the 'HISPANIC" mary kate plus eight hoping for a TV SHOW... she will be raising 14 KIDS with NO BABY DADDY,

NO WONDER THE STATE OF CALIF. IS BANKRUPT ! STOP THE INSANITY !
