Nadya Suleman's father blasted his daughter and the doctor who implanted her eight embyros as "absolutely irresponsible" in an Oprah interview, reports the Huffington Post. "I'm no psychiatrist, but I question her mental situation," said Ed Doud in comments to air next week. But he pleaded with the public not to punish his daughter or the babies—gifts "from God"—for her actions, and said she desperately needs help to raise her 14 children.

Attorney Gloria Allred has presented an offer on behalf of a California charity to provide Suleman round-the-clock care and a place to stay, the Los Angeles Times reported. It would cost about $135,000 a month to provide the 12 caretakers necessary for the children, said a charity spokeswoman. The offer follows a complaint filed by Allred with Los Angeles County family services requesting an investigation into whether Suleman’s children might be endangered if left in her care.
