Allwood pregnant again

MANDY ALLWOOD, the woman who attempted to have eight babies at the same time but who lost them all, is pregnant again and may be carrying twins.

The 32-year-old, who caused worldwide controversy when she became pregnant in 1996 with octuplets, following fertility treatment, said she was "stunned" at falling pregnant again just four months after giving birth to a baby girl, Color. "We are absolutely thrilled to bits," she said. Ms Allwood, who refused to comment on whether she has been undergoing fertility treatment, is co-writing a book on the subject which she hopes to have published next year.
