Octomom beats Jon & Kate Plus 8 in the ratings

User Rating: / 1

Kate GosselinAccording to FOX, Nadya Suleman (aka Octo-Mom) entertained 4.2 million viewers on her recent two-hour TV special, while the beloved Jon & Kate Plus 8 series captured the interest of a mere 3 million fans.

Octo-Mom and Kate Gosselin have repeatedly attacked one another’s parenting styles through publicity slams. With all of those kids, where do these feuding moms of multiples find the time?

Putting all the nastiness aside, it’s interesting to see the names these famous parents have bestowed upon children.

Octo-Mom beats Jon & Kate Plus 8 in the ratings

Kate’s 8 kids
The twins -- Cara Nicole and Madelyn Kate – were born in 2000.

The 5-year-old sextuplets include Aaden Jonathan, Alexis Faith, Collin Thomas, Hannah Joy, Joel Kevin and Leah Hope. Note the girls’ middle names – Faith, Hope and Joy. (Somewhere along the way, the third Christian value, Charity, was lost…)

Nadya’s 14 kids
The octuplets consist of six boys – Isaiah Angel, Jeremiah Angel, Jonah Angel, Jeremiah Angel, Makai Angel and Noah Angel, and two girls – Maliyah Angel and Nariyah Angel. The common middle name Angel is of Spanish origin.  

Suleman’s other children are Elijah Makai, 7, Amerah Yasmeen, 6, Joshua Jacob, 5, Aiden, 3, and twins Calyssa and Caleb, 2. The middle name of the eldest child (Makai, meaning “Who is of God?”)  is also the first name of one of the octuplets.

Comment: Are the Gosselins and Octo-Mom exploiting their children?
