It's official: Octo-Mom Nadya Suleman's kids are coming to a TV near you.

Suleman signed agreements for each of her 14 children to earn $250 a day to star in a reality show, according to documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court Friday.

Meet the octuplet babies.

The contracts -- which still require a judge's approval -- guarantee the kids will collectively earn nearly $250,000 over the next three years. They'll receive $125,000 for 36 days of shooting in the first year, $75,000 for 21 days in the second year and $50,000 for 14 days in the third year.

Eyeworks will produce the show, according to court documents. The company is also behind Breaking Bonaduce and The Biggest Loser.

The Sulemans begin taping Sept. 1.

In April, Suleman's lawyer, Jeff Czech, told Usmagazine.com that she wanted to tape a "not so intrusive [show]...to make a little income for herself."

Cameras could follow "Nadya dating, taking the kids to birthday parties, learning how to drive a 14-person van," Czech explained.
