The eight's grandmother says that seeing the tiny, fragile octuplets melted her heart -- and her resentment.

The grandmother and mother of the almost one-month-old octuplets have made peace with each other, according to CBS.

Angela Suleman had sharply criticized daughter Nadya's decision to expand her family through artificial insemination, despite already having six young children.

But in an interview with posted on CBS's website, Angela Suleman said her anger subsided after she saw the babies.

"I thought, 'My goodness, these are my grandchildren. They're so tiny and fragile. I'll have to be there for them, you know, like I was for the others,"' she said.

"You can resent your daughter for just so long and then you see that she's trying so hard to take care of these children," Angela Suleman said. "She's a very good mother ... but then she had a good example."

Nadya Suleman's six older children have been living in Angela's three-bedroom home.

Angela Suleman said she won't have enough space for the octuplets, who were born last month, when they are released from the hospital, and that she will have to help her daughter move into another home.

She said she already spends her entire retirement income caring for the six grandchildren who live with her.

"My retirement check goes every month," she said. "It's just gone."
