February 5, 2009 | 12:03 pm

The mother of octuplets born last week in Bellflower will give her first interview to NBC News correspondent Ann Curry, the mother's publicist said.

It will take place at an undisclosed time at an undisclosed location. Michael Furtney, the publicist for Nadya Suleman said he could not discuss whether she was being paid. "That’s between her and NBC."

NBC officials confirmed that Curry is doing the interview and said the network is not paying Suleman.

Suleman was released from the hospital early this morning, according to hospital officials.

Nadya Suleman lives in Whittier, but it was unclear where she planned to go. Her babies remain in the hospital but are listed in good condition.

Suleman made world headlines when she gave birth to the eight babies, only the second time octuplets were born in U.S. history. Suleman lives in Whittier with her father and already has six young children.

Updated at 4:40 p.m.: Furtney, Suleman's publicist, said he misspoke earlier when he said any payment was between his client and NBC. "There is no payment by NBC for any story .... And certainly to to Nadya."
