Octuplet mom Nadya Suleman has agreed to accept free round-the-clock nursing and child care from the nonprofit group Angels In Waiting, the Los Angeles Times reports. The babies, expected to leave the hospital within weeks, will also have a bigger home to go to. Suleman's father has bought a four-bedroom home in Orange County nearly twice as big as the one currently housing Suleman, her other six children and her mom, People reports.

The news comes just in time for Suleman's older kids, who aren't looking forward to eight more siblings, she said. They're "externalizing their anger. They become more withdrawn and get a little more sad," Suleman tells the Insider. "One of my kids didn't want to deal with the reality of what's going on. I noticed some tears coming down his face."
