Suleman gave birth to octuplets in January 2009. Ever since, she became the center of gossip. The public’s sudden interest in her life led to her appearing on television talk shows. She also made an adult film. Surprisingly, Suleman already had six children before giving birth to the octuplets. She conceived all 14 of her children through in vitro fertilization.

Falling on hard times

Suleman, a single mother, had a tough time taking care of all her children. Consequently, she took whatever jobs she could find so she could provide for her family. The mom has taken jobs as a nude model, porn actress, stripper, and celebrity boxer. Despite her best efforts, Suleman lost one of her homes to foreclosure, a La Habra, California, home she paid $453,750 for in 2006, reports CNBC. According to TMZ, she moved out in June 2012.

Apparently, the stress of raising 14 kids got to Suleman. She reportedly said she is “disgusted by babies” during a 2011 interview with In Touch, reports the New York Daily News. “Whenever I hear a baby cry, I cringe. I do not like babies. I do not like babies who cry. I’m disgusted by babies, and I’m so sorry, I’m just being honest. They make me sick. I couldn’t even imagine — I don’t even look at them. I have to look the other way,” she told In Touch.

However, she did clarify that she does like her own children. “These are my children. Because the nannies are gone, I am forcing myself to do absolutely everything. With that said, I am bonding with them so that is occurring naturally,” she said.

During a Today show interview, Suleman said the part of the story about her not liking babies wasn’t true. Despite her insistence she didn’t make those comments, TMZ posted an audio file of the interview online, where you can hear her comments about not liking babies.

So just who is the man who fathered Nadya Suleman’s kids? One person who is rumored to be the father of the octuplets is a man named Denis Beaudoin. During a 2009 interview with Chris Cuomo on Good Morning America, he said he donated his sperm to Suleman three times but didn’t ask any questions about it because he was in love. “But I cared about her so much. And I mean, we were, we were in love. I mean, I loved Nadya very much,” he told Cuomo. Beaudoin said he and Suleman were in a serious relationship from 1997 to 1999. Suleman says Beaudoin is not the father.
