Octuplets mom already has six children and lives with parents

The mother who gave birth to octuplets has six other children and is a single mom living with her parents, according to CBS News.
CBS News tried to contact the mother but was able to talk only with her father briefly and to her friend, who told them that the mom has four older boys and two girls.
The friend told CBS News’ correspondent Hattie Kauffman:
"She is young...fairly young. She has six children already. And in those six children, she has a set of twins."
The doctors who delivered the octuplets at the Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center in Bellflower, California said the mother and the children are doing well but didn’t reveal whether fertility drugs were used.
Since there is no documented case for naturally conceived octuplets, Kauffman thinks they might have used fertility drugs.
The octuplets will be in the hospital for few more weeks.
When Kauffman knocked the woman’s home, the octuplets’ grandfather answered the door but refused to speak further.
The woman, along with her six children, appears to live with her parents in the two or three bedroom cul-de-sac.
The woman’s friend told Kauffman that the mother managed fine living with the parents with her six children but now she is not sure how they are going to manage with eight more children in that home. The neighborhood she lives in all have two or three bedroom homes or apartments.
