SHARE BRITISH HEALTH AUTHORITY MAY NOT PAY FOR OCTUPLETS

A British woman expecting eight babies can expect a hospital bill in the six figures - and the state-run health authority said Friday it may not pick up the tab.

Money has dominated the tabloid-sponsored saga of the very pregnant Mandy Allwood, 31, since she signed a contract to have her story published in News of the World, Britain's largest-selling tabloid.The newspaper has not revealed the story price but signaled that the more babies she bears, the more money she gets.

Her publicist, Max Clifford, believes she could make $1.5 million in sponsorship deals if all goes well.

"She only wants what is best for the babies," he said.
