Nadya “Octomom” Suleman Fells Guilty Over Big Brood

Posted Tuesday April 20, 2010 2:25 PM GMT

She’s had quite the crazy life ever since the birth of her octuplets, and Nadya “Octomom” Suleman says things aren’t easy for her as an unemployed single mother.

During a satellite interview with Oprah Winfrey, Nadya confessed that she lives with a “tremendous amount of guilt.”

She added that her motivation for having so many kids was out of her “own childish desires to compensate- trying to fill some missing piece inside.”

"Looking back, I've always coveted that connection, that attachment to another being. And the connection felt safer with children than with a significant other, more predictable. The security — I was hungering for the security."

"I live every single day every hour of the day with a tremendous amount of guilt. And I feel guilty when I hold the one or two and then that I can't be there for the others. And they're crying. And then I feel guilty. Look at the older ones. They all have different unique needs. And I'll live with this forever. But all I can do now is keep on going, keep moving. Keep on trying to be the most devoted mother I can be."
