‘Octomom’ Natalie Suleman Updates Fans on Octuplets’ Lives

Published

on

Natalie Suleman, a.k.a. the “Octomom” of 2009, makes a new appearance on Instagram, showing how much the octuplets have grown since birth. The single mom of six children made headlines when she decided to have eight more children via in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Now, the kids are a little more grown and still cute as ever.

Natalie Suleman’s Octomom Story

Natalie Suleman was a single woman living in California when she began IVF treatments. She started in 1997 at 21 years old, and in 2001 gave birth to her first son. She continued IVF treatments, and had five more children, including one set of fraternal twins.

In 2008, she decided to have one more pregnancy, using the last of the embryos from her previous IVF treatments. She stated that she didn’t want any to be destroyed and went to Dr. Kamrava to have the last six transferred. However, Dr. Kamrava had more eggs fertilized that she thought and transferred twelve to Suleman, eight of which were viable. In 2009, Suleman gave birth to eight children and became the first mother of octuplets to survive in the United States.

Back to School

Suleman recently posted a photo of all eight children on their first day back to school. They’re waiting by the minivan, looking as happy and cute as they did when they had the national spotlight.

Natalie captioned the photo: “Any other parents exceptionally stressed and overwhelmed the first week back to school? I must admit six (yes I said six!) drop offs and pick ups monopolize most of my day, as I am an official bus driver (but wouldn’t have it any other way lol). Per usual, none of the older kids want anything to do with taking a picture, as much as I begged!”

What’s Next for the Fourteen Suleman Kids?

Suleman has made many dramatic changes in her life since giving birth to her octuplets. At the time, she was criticized for using public assistance and having jobs in the sex industry. However, she now works as a counselor and is raising her kids in a happy home.

Suleman says she is glad to be away from the “dehumanizing and exploitative” work of her past and is working to be an incredible role model for her children. We hope to see more from Natalie and her eight kids, living the life of one big happy family.
