Karla Vanessa Perez: Mexican woman pregnant with nine babies

Move over, Octomom. Cause Nuevemom Karla Vanessa Perez is about to spawn all over the place.

Perez, who lives in Coahuila, Mexico, is expected to give birth to nine babies on May 20 — six girls and three boys. We don’t know much about Perez, other than she used fertility treatments to conceive the litter of children (much like Octomom) and she hasn’t even started thinking about names, as reported by TMZ.

“It’s very early to think of names for the babies … first I hope that everything goes well,” she told Notimex news agency.

We hope Perez is better equipped to care for a gaggle of tots than Nadya Suleman. Octomom, who is the mother of 14 children, including a set of octuplets, has made headlines recently for blowing hundreds of dollars on haircuts while her kids live in “squalor” — this, of course, while she is receiving food stamps and welfare to support her ginormous family. Suleman’s own hair stylist says Octomom locks her children in a bedroom, lodging a chair under the knob to keep the door closed. Let’s hope Perez isn’t her understudy.  

Joking aside, pregnancies involving multiples often carry serious risks. There are only two recorded births of nonuplets (nine babies); in both cases, all the babies died very soon after they were born, according to Wikipedia. Even Suleman’s octuplets became the longest-living octuplets in history only one week after they were born.
