Octomom Nadya Suleman is popularly known for having a fit body despite having eight children born together. She has been in news since the time of her birth. Nadya has agreed to the point that her children make her feel more safer than a partner can ever do. Nadya Suleman's health, diet and gym routine are the secrets to her fitness.

Who is Nadya Suleman?

Nadya Suleman was a regular California woman before she touched the zenith of fame and controversy after giving birth to Octuplets. She is famous as Octomom in media and society after she conceived and gave birth to eight kids with IVF in January 26, 2009.


Nadya Suleman and her Children

Many of you might not know, but this Octomom Nadya has 14 children altogether. She had 6 children already before giving birth to the Octuplets- Amerah, Calyssa, Elijah, Joshua, Aidan, and Caleb. The names of the Octuplets are very Biblical due to Nadya’s belief in religion-Noah, Jonah, Jeremiah, Josiah, Isaiah, Makai, Nariyah, and Maliyah. All her children are result to IVF. Nadya’s IVF journey began in 2001 under Dr. Michael Kamrava. She had the first six children with a gap of year and two. However, in 2009, she decided to go for implantation of all her remaining eggs (6). The luck was such that two of the eggs split which resulted into Octuplets. Her doctor Michael Kamrava, was expelled from Medical community with his license cancelled due to crossing legal reasons of IVF in this case.


Who is the Father of Nadya’s Children?


As per Nadya’s mother, David Solomon, Nadya’s ex-boyfriend is the father of all the 14 children. However, Nadya confirms that she is asexual and the children were the result of David Solomon’s donated sperm. But interestingly enough, Nadya’s father denies David to be the father of these children.


Nadya’s Reasons behind so many children

Nadya, a Bachelor in Child & Adolescent Development, California State University confesses that these children are due to her irresistible love for children. For your information, Nadya was once married and divorced in the year 2000 due to her childlessness. We guess that the obsession comes from that desperation only which is confirmed by her ex-husband also many times in the front of media. As per Nadya says “Looking back, I’ve always coveted that connection, that attachment to another being. And the connection felt safer with children than with a significant other, more predictable,” 

What Nadya does to support her children?

Nadya is a celebrity and she runs on the revenue earned from her fame. However, the financial situation of her family is not stable now. Nadya sometimes is seen confessing about the regrets she is feeding in her mind due to her obsession and impulsive decision for having so many children. She says “We’re so busy going, going, going, moving, moving, moving, trying to keep up that you don’t have time to think, to reflect, to feel anything. And it is a choice. I own all of the responsibility for my poor choices in the past.”

Nadya Suleman Health & Diet

If you have googled out Nadya or have seen her in T.V. or real life, she has an impeccably thin frame. After having so many children, Nadya’s body is a wonder in itself. Nadya, however, gives credits to her vegan diet for it and her obsession with Gym. But, many of her followers and relatives blame it to her obsession to substance abuse as well.

It must be pretty hard for Nadya Suleman to be raising 14 children. I think the government should support her to raise her child and provide her with better living standards.

Nadya Suleman is a living example of IVF success. If you are scared of multiple births through IVF then, there is nothing to worry about. You can go for embryo reduction technique in case of multiple births and can achieve single child parenthood.
