Nadya Suleman’s father Ed Doud, sat down with Oprah Winfrey, to talk about his daughter’s situation and how she’ll cope with raising fourteen children, eight of them born less than a month ago.
Doud agreed that his 33-year-old only child will definitely need help, including financial assistance. Oprah asked him if his daughter is mentally stable. Doud replied, “That’s a very good question.”
He added, “Now I’m no psychiatrist, but I question her mental situation.” He said both Nadya and her fertility doctor were “absolutely irresponsible” to allow her to become that many babies.
Doug hopes he will stay healthy and that Nadya can finish her schooling and get a job. “And we all could support this family,” he added.
Oprah asked about the donation Website set up to help Nadya - Doug agreed his daughter will absolutely need financial assistance.
Doud said, “I say to everybody now: People, we do need help. Do not punish my daughter for what she had done and do not punish the babies, because they were given by God.”
The interview will air on February 24 on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
