Here comes one of the most interesting case ever with Nadya Denise Suleman aka Natalie Denise Doud-Suleman. She rose to fame when she gave birth to her eight children in January 2009. Since then, she is widely known as “Octomom”.

It is the very rare thing to occur that giving birth to octuplets and more difficult is to nurture them. You are almost getting it harder to raise your only child, right? But single mother Suleman already had 6 children waiting for her at home when she was giving birth to more eight children. Let’s take a look on how is she looking after her fourteen children and self with minimal resources.


1. Actually, who is Nadya Suleman?

Nadya Suleman is an American media personality born on 11 July 1975 in Fullerton, California, U.S. Her father, Edward Doud Suleman was in the Iraqi military and also owned a restaurant. And her mother, Angela Suleman was a school teacher who died in 2015. She went Nogales High school and later joined California State University.

She was just woman-next-door but instantly came into limelight overnight. Why so happened? She achieved the attention of the entire world because she gave birth to eight children at once which made her Octomom. Additionally, all those babies survived beating the previous survival rate of Chukwu octuplets in 1998.

She holds the title of Octomom of the 21st century. But her maternity also turned into controversy with ultra multiple births and that’s too with the help of technology. Public reacted negatively to her decision of having so many babies with earlier six children and she was also jobless at that period.

2. Daddy of all those 14 children


Lucky is the man who is famed as ‘Octodad” and is the father of seven sets of children. But for your information, Suleman is blessed with motherhood all because of IVF (In Vitro Fertilization). She started IVF treatments when she was only aged 21 in 1997.

She was supervised by Dr. Michael Kamrava during her treatment. And, Suleman became a proud mother of a baby son in 2001 and following that year, she gave birth to her first daughter. She didn’t stop her IVF treatments which led her to more three pregnancies including a twin birth. Suleman said that the father of all 14 children is a doner named David Solomon, her children given that last name too. But her father denied the thing and stated the father is unknown yet.

While peeking on her marital life, Suleman was married in 1996 with Marco Gutierrez. But, they separated in 2000 and their divorce was finalized in 2008. During a talk with Inside Edition, Gutierrez told that their marriage failed due to being unable to get babies where he disliked the idea of Suleman for having IVF treatment. Also, he cleared that he is not the father of any children of his ex-wife.

3. About Suleman’s octobabies

Being mother is the greatest joy of life, so happened with Nadya Suleman. She desperately wanted to have her own babies but can’t have them in a traditional way. However, she came with a number of children at the end through the help of technology.

After having six children already she still wanted to be a mother. She got transferred all the remaining embryos from prior treatments. Later in 2009, she came with two baby daughters and six sons. All of them are now 8 years old and are pure vegan along with their mom.

Suleman has given biblical names for her young eight children. The name goes like Noah, Jonah, Jeremiah, Josiah, Isaiah, Makai, Nariyah and Maliyah.  The older children have too got religious names like Amerah, Elijah, Calyssa, Caleb as well as Aidan.


4. How Octomom feeds her needs?

Along with her growing fame after delivering octuplets, she was equally criticized by the public. People reacted her maternity in a negative way cause she already got six children and was jobless too. She was feeding her children with public assistance hence became a punching bag of the public.

Suleman is not from a rich family nor has a well-paying job to raise her fourteen children. After the protest of people, she decided to complete her masters in counseling but records signify she didn’t. She also filed for personal bankruptcy in 2012 and told that her net worth is $50,000 whereas her debt was about $1 million. Prior to that, she was accused of caring her children through spending a huge amount on self-decorating.

However, at present, she is feeding her children with the money given for making TV and other media appearances. She has also appeared in Cledus T. Judd music video, Honeymoon.

5. Pornography, Suleman’s hunger for fame or compulsion?


Nadya Suleman also appeared in porn film ‘Octomom Home Alone’ in 2012. The film was produced by Wicked Pictures and won AVN Awards 2013 for Best Celebrity Sex Tape. She got a name as ‘Octomom’ but still, she lacked money to care and rear her children.

On the way of collecting money to support her family, she also released a music video “Sexy Party” along with Adam Barta in 2012. That video which showed Barta holding her breasts too resulted in Suleman in controversy. Before that, she worked in men’s clubs as an adult entertainer.

But, currently, she keeps her away from Octomom fame and regrets her past. She stated that’s she doesn’t want her daughters to make a blunder as she did and regret life.

6. Regret on her choice of being mother

People accused Nadya Suleman over the topic that she might not take a good care of her octuplets and six older children. But, she is proving them wrong with her proper parenting being as a single mother. She instantly keeps posing on her social media about her involvement with her children.

In an interview to People magazine, she told,” I don’t get much sleep, about two or three hours a night. But I’m continuing to move forward with my life and trying to be the best mother I can be.” Seems she is extremely happy being a mother of fourteen children even with minimal finance.

She also said she doesn’t regret having children but her wishes were childish and yet immature. Suleman has got enough lessons till day from her personal as well as professional life. We wish her children too learn from their mother deeds and don’t repeat in future.



7. Amerah, the first daughter of Suleman

The eldest daughter of Nadya Suleman, born in 2002 is all grown up. She is beautiful daughter of an inspirational mother. In July 2017, Suleman posted a picture with Amerah with a caption,”Dear Amerah, one of the most important lessons I try to teach you all is that person that crosses your path is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind, compassionate, and patient with people always; and aware that sometimes the brighter the smile the deeper the suffering…I am sorry I couldn’t give you the birthday you hoped for this year. Next year will be a new beginning for all of us. I love you so much my angel, happy birthday. (Love) 30 June 2002

Though Suleman is not able to give luxurious life to her children she is trying to make a good human. She is on duty 24/7 for supporting her children. Because motherhood is greatest yet the hardest thing.

8. Younger with age


42 years old, Octomom Suleman still possesses an attractive figure and charming face. Though giving huge breed of 14 children, she seems as if on her 20s. She was with the healthy figure before being introduced in media and publicity. But now, she is flaunting her bombshell physique around.

On the basis of her social sites, we can say that she is gym fanatic and spend her spare time mostly in the gym. Moreover, she has completely changed her diet as vegetarian along with her octuplets.  We can also say that her dedication to caring her children in the best way has helped her out to achieve a great figure.

And how can we ignore her look that is similar to Angelina Jolie? Though, she denied the thing on The Oprah Winfrey Show and Idol Gives Back. But we can see the changes on her plump lips, pointed nose, and apple-like cheeks. All we can say is “Go mama go!”


9. Planning for more babies

Nadya Suleman told to In Touch Weekly in 2011, “I hate babies, they disgust me…Obviously, I love them- but I absolutely wish I have not had them.” It seems like her dream of living large family has twisted into a dreadful reality. She also told that she was about to quit her life to be free from burden.

It was then when she used to hate her children and anyone could because rising up 14 children at once is not a joke. She is already regretting her choices and doesn’t want to get pregnant ever again.

She said,” At this point in my life, that is the furthest thing that I would ever even imagine. I can’t grow additional eyes or hands. I’m not an octopus. I can barely give them-nobody could, not two people, not four people even could give them-all the emotional, psychological and physical needs. You can’t possibly.”
