A spokeswoman for the Southern California woman who recently delivered octuplets says she didn't have the kids simply so she could cash in on them. Spokeswoman Joann Killeen told NBC's Today show Wednesday that financial gain "was not her intention" and that her client "always wanted to be a mom."

33 year old single mom Nadya Suleman, already had six children, ages 2 to 7, when she gave birth to octuplets on January 26. The babies, two girls and six boys, were the result of in vitro fertilization.

Suleman is currently weighing TV, movie, book and newspaper offers from around the world to tell her story. The spokesperson says it's too early to discuss how much money she might receive.

The babies are only the second set of octuplets to be born in the United States and now the longest surviving.
