No, this couple did not beat the system. But they do have eight babies, a big fine, and have lost their home in Guangzhou.
This is a big violation of the one child policy.
There was some trouble with fertility which caused the mom to seek treatment, and at the same time hire two surrogate mothers.
What they wound up with was three triplets from the mom, and a total of five kids from the two surrogates. Eight babies was waaaaay more than the Chinese reproductive regulators could stand.
