Octomom & Dad

Rehab

Table 4 2

EXCLUSIVE

1104_suleman_and_fatherYou know what they say -- the family that detoxes together ... Octomom's dad has joined his daughter in rehab ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for Nadya Suleman tells TMZ ... 71-year-old papa Octo (aka Ed Doud) -- checked into the Chapman House Rehabilitation Center Wednesday for a 28-day alcohol dependency program.

We're told Ed's alcohol addiction goes back decades -- and he was inspired by his daughter to finally clean up his act.

It seems the folks who run the joint want to keep father/daughter apart, because they haven't seen each other yet ... they're at opposite ends of the facility ... but we're told they'll definitely come together for some family therapy sessions.

TMZ broke the story ... Nadya's in a 30-day program for Xanax dependency, while her kids are at home on their best behavior ever ... in the good care of 3 nannies.

Diamond Goddess!    

If his is true, I wish them all the best!
i remember Ed and her mom being interviewed when the whole "Octo" story first broke, and i really liked them.
Ed seems like a straight-up guy.
Best of luck!!!

Are people ment to feel sorry for this pathetic excuse of a mother??? Sorry she gets zero smypathy from me. Nobody forced her to have this many children before she had her infamous pregnancy she already had 6 kids which she was already stuggling to look after and she never even had a job she was living on welfare. Why the hell would you have so many children when you know you had no money or anyone to care for them??? She is selfish and disgusting. I understand if she had a child by accident it happens thats life but this stupid woman got herself pregnant on purpose and chose to have so many children now she cant cope and you know?? Those poor children are suffering now. She did this because she wanted to be famous and live a luxury lifestyle without doing anything useful. Not once has this woman put thoise kids first she made quite a lot of money and instead of leaving a chunk for her kids furture she spent every single penny on herself that she is now bankrupt. Child services need to step in now and take those children away from her thats the only way they are going to be happy and live a nice decent life. She makes me sick.

THIS IS COMPLETE CRAP. Natalie Doud is in Pidgeon Forge TN filming a spoof video with Cledus Judd and she has been there all week. Don't you guys EVER check your facts?
