In January 2009, the world was first introduced to Nadya Suleman, the mother who gave birth to octuplets. After making international headlines, she was named the ‘Octomom.’
Nadya Suleman. Gave birth to the octuplets, which are only the second full set of octuplets to be born alive in the United States.
Also has six other young children. Suleman was on various television shows during her popularity. She did an interview with Ann Curry and appeared on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ and ‘Dr. Phil.’
In 2009, Fox aired its own two-hour special called ‘Octomom: The Incredible Unseen Footage.’ Nadya has stayed out of the media for the last few years, and here is what her family looks like now.
Here is an early picture of Nadya with her newborn brood of eight. Their names are Noah, Maliyah, Isaiah Nariyah, Jeremiah, Josiah, Jonah, and Makai.
Her adorable octuplets are growing up fast. Here is a picture of the eight of them on their first day of school. She is doing a great job raising so many children.
Nadya looks incredible after having eight babies. You can see on her Instagram account that she likes to stay fit and eat healthy. She runs marathons now as well.
Just look at this picture that Nadya posted on Instagram of the amazing vegetables she eats. She says she is a health-conscious mom of many; ‘raw and organic veggies and fruits constitute the majority of our meals (at least 10 out of my 14 kids follow my clean diet). The other few kids say it’s gross and prefer McDonald's.’ She adds that it took her 6 years of daily attempts to convince her oldest child to eat a carrot.
She has a great support system with her children. She says, ‘I believe marathons are a mental sport. One year ago today, I ran my first half marathon in Long Beach for breast cancer awareness and have challenged myself to complete 5 more, all for a cause.’ She explains that her kids are excited to start participating in kids' runs, and as a family, they have completed 4 runs.
Nadya likes to hit the gym as one of the ways she keeps in shape. She seems to be in a great place with her health and fitness.
Here Nadya is with one of her oldest children, Amerah. Nadya looks great, and they look more like sisters than mother and daughter. Nadya seems to be living a wonderful life 7 years after she gave birth to her octuplets.
Nadya works out to stay hit, but she also has to work out because she carried so many babies at once. She developed 5 herniated discs in her lumbar spine, and 3 have collapsed completely. This can require surgery, so she lifts weights to strengthen her core and the muscles in her back.
