LA HABRA, CALIF. (AP) - The Southern California woman who gave birth to octuplets apologized in a video posted Saturday to the father of all 14 of her children and promised that she would never reveal his identity.

“I’m sorry for all this mess, and I hope he isn’t scared it’ll come out because it won’t,” Nadya Suleman said in the RadarOnline.com video. “As far as I’m concerned, I’ll never disclose who he is.”

Suleman said the man is a foreign-born California resident in his 30s, but did not disclose his current address.

The 33-year-old unemployed single mother gave birth to octuplets on Jan. 26. They were born nine weeks premature and are the world’s longest-surviving set of octuplets. She already had six children, ages 2 to 7. Two of the octuplets, Noah and Isaiah, have been discharged from Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center.

Suleman said the man was a friend who would make a good father, adding that their 7-year-old son Elijah resembled him.

She said he was speechless when she told him how many children she was carrying, and then he asked Suleman if the doctor knew she already had many children.
