Nadya Suleman, a mom of octuplets, celebrates their 15th birthday


    Following the birth of her octuplets in 2009, Nadya Suleman gained international recognition as “Octomom.” Nadya was a mother of six children before she gave birth to her eight babies, who were the first surviving octuplets in history. Nadya, who was unemployed at the time, encountered financial difficulties after her birth that attracted global notice. She looked for numerous methods to maintain her huge family. She took on unorthodox endeavors like a nude photo session, a brief stay in the adult entertainment sector, boxing fights with celebrities, and trying to copyright the nickname “Octomom” for use in commerce.

    Although many questioned her decisions and motivations, everyone eventually came to the conclusion that she had done everything within her power to support her large family.

    As of 2013, Nadya decided to step away from the spotlight.

    “My girls, especially my oldest daughter Amerah, were the catalyst,” Suleman said to People in 2016. “At the age of ten, she began incorporating my characteristics and actions.”


    She went on, “I realized at that point I’d rather be homeless in my van with all 14 kids than continue down this path after I had watched my daughter start to copy me and saw her going down the same possibly destructive path. It was not my ideal scenario for my kids. When the octuplets—Noah, Maliyah, Isaiah, Nariyah, Jeremiah, Jonah, Josiah, and Makai—celebrated their 15th birthday this year, their supermom sent them a vintage picture of themselves on their first birthday to express her congratulations.


    Nadya rarely shares photos of her kids, but she does post updates now and then.

    “Be proud of yourselves kids for being kind, respectful, and helpful to all your fellow peers, teachers, and staff,” the delighted mother wrote beside a photo of her octuplets when they started eighth grade. She also added that her teenagers “are exceptional role models to the 6th and 7th graders.”

    She tweeted, “I love you,” with a single red heart emoji, and concluded with a “side note to critics.”

    “Their older siblings did not want me to post a picture on their first day. I respect their choice, so should you,” she wrote.

    Nadya had also commemorated her octuplets’ teen transition last year on Instagram with a tribute post.

    “I have never known any more gracious, modest, appreciative, or loving people than you guys are becoming. She wrote at the time, “Each of you has exceptional qualities that set you apart from other kids your age, especially in today’s society. “Selfless, altruistic, nonmaterialistic, and loving, fearing, followers of God,” is how she characterized her children. “I have never seen children who love and want to serve others, especially those who are less fortunate, so boldly and confidently like every one of you do,” the speaker continued.

    “You are not followers of this shallow world, but of a God that created and loves you unconditionally. I do not know what I could have done to deserve being blessed so bountifully,” she added. “I love you ❤️.”

    Aren’t they a loving family?
