Nadya Suleman has yet to speak to the media and any information about her has come from her mother Angela, or her newly hired public relations representative, but that hasn't stopped people from guessing what Suleman's motivations are for adding octuplets to her previous brood of six. Over the weekend, Angela revealed that her daughter has been obsessed with being a mother since she was a teenager, but a "plugged up" fallopian tubes meant "luckily, she couldn't." But the NY Daily News, which describes Nadya as a woman with an "irrational, seemingly pathological, need to conceive" has reviewed the sketchy details on her life and concluded that her background leaves "the impression of loneliness." The paper and experts quoted within theorize that Suleman may be trying to fill a manless void (!!!) in her life with children. "They give back so much love, attention and caring," says Dr. Jennifer Hartstein, a psychologist who doesn't treat Suleman, "And if she's not feeling she's gotten that anyplace else, that could be the primary reason."
