Earlier in the week I made a joke about he woman who had octuplets and how she was halfway to her own television show. Now however, I think she is well on her way to having a television show. I also think that I am not quite understanding something here. The woman who gave birth to the octuplets already had six children. 6 +8 = 14. That is a bunch of children. Silly me assumed that because she was taking fertility drugs that she didn't have any other kids and that she and her significant other had been trying for a long time to have kids.
It turns out that the woman lives at home with her parents with the six kids. Now, I may have missed something here, but it also sounds to me like there is no significant other. Hey, whatever. She can do as she pleases, but I just found it odd that one person would want to raise 14 kids by themselves.
If you had six kids before, then I am having a tough time understanding why you would undergo fertility treatments. It seems to me that whatever you were doing before worked pretty well. Did she wake up one morning and say to herself, “you know, the six kids are only coming about once a year. I need to do something that produces more children more quickly.”
I understand that I am an ignorant guy and that I am probably missing a reason or some other story which explains all of this. Maybe she was testing the drug for money to help support her other six kids. I don't know. I do know that if her wish was to get a television show she is probably going to get her wish. 14 kids and raising them all by herself. That is a television show. Sure, there are grandparents to help, but when they are promoting the show it will be single mom and 14 kids.
I also know that the Duggars better get with it or they won't have the most kids on television anymore. Hell who cares about their 18 kids. They have two parents and a bunch of older kids helping them. Mrs. Duggar better start taking fertility drugs as well. I won't be happy until they have at least 30 kids. Meanwhile, the woman who gave birth to the octuplets is supposed to be pretty young. Like in her 20's young and so she has a great shot at getting to 40 at this rate. I mean sure, she shouldn't expect more octuplets but she can probably get quads or quints on a pretty regular basis.
This is all insane.
