Edward Doud Suleman, the octoGrandpa, weighs in on Oprah
What does Nadya Suleman’s father have to say about his daughter?
Nadya Suleman’s parents have not been hesitant in making their opinions heard on their daughter’s behavior. Nadya’s mother Angela says in an interview with her and her daughter that she will “never understand” Nadya’s decision (we cover the interview here: OctoMom Fights with her mother in an interview)
Edward Doud Suleman, Nadya’s Sulemans father, has now appeared on Oprah to defend his daughter from much of the criticism she have been receiving in the press lately. Mr. Suleman, who early on pleaded with the press for privacy on his daughter’s behalf, is now speaking publicly about his views on the octuplets and the choices his daughter Nadya has made.
Nadya Suleman – Father on Oprah Interview
In the interview, Oprah as usual pulls no punches, asking him pointed questions about the responsibility he feels his daughter has in the situation, as well as what he is going to do now that he has 14 grand children.
Just as with the Dr. Phil interview, Jimmy Kimmel has his own take on the Oprah interview. Check out the video below.

Mr. Suleman, who is of Iraqi decent and spent time serving in Iraq as a member of the military, is reportedly going to return to Iraq as a translator and driver to aid his daughter in supporting the children. This comes after Nadya’s mother and Mr. Suleman’s ex-wife, Angela, has complained that she is overwhelmed attempting to care for Nadya’s 6 older children who are in her care, and complains that Nadya has contributed little to help relieve the financial burden of raising her six children. It remains to be seen how much of Mr. Suleman’s earnings in Iraq will go towards helping his ex-wife, who is struggling to make house payments on the pension payments she receives as a retired public school teacher.
