(Newser) – Don’t worry, everyone—octuplet mom Nadya Suleman will be able to have more kids, she tells Radar. Though she recently said upcoming surgery would remove half her uterus and prevent her from becoming pregnant, the operation is actually just a “myomectomy,” which involves taking fibriods out of the uterus. It’ll even enhance Suleman’s fertility—though she doesn’t plan on expanding her brood.
