Octomom, a.k.a., Nadya Suleman, burst onto the scene in January 2009 when she gave birth to not twins, not triplets, but octuplets. Having eight kids was record-breaking and caught the media’s attention, but it also caught the attention of many critics.
Everything from her parenting style to the methods her doctor used to get her pregnant opened her up to criticism. It’s been nearly a decade since we met Octomom and a lot of highs and lows have happened for her since that time. Read on to see what Octomom and her extra-large, extra-scandalous family is up to today. You won’t believe what the kids look like now!
An Innocent Wish
Nadya was born an only child to an immigrant family. Her Iraqi father and Lithuanian mother spoiled her, but she still craved attention from something else: a sibling.
This experience growing up made her hope and dream to one day have a big family. Little did she know as a child that the wish would come true.
