Nadia Suleman became famous in 2009 while giving birth to the octuplets. The novelty of such a special pregnancy spread worldwide and caused a lot of buzz in medical circles.
A week after giving birth, Nadia and her babies set a world record: all the newborns survived, which is rare when babies were born prematured. For a specific time, Suleman’s story didn’t quit the healines of the medias.
Some criticized Nadia, a single mom, for the reckless act of giving birth to 8 children when she already had six offspring. Others shocked her fearless being and determination.
But more than 12 years ago , and everything is going well for the Suleman family. How did she end up becoming the mother of so many children without a husband, and how does she live and look now?
At the age of 20, Nadya finally got married, but 4 years later, the couple broke up, and they had no children. From a young age, the American woman knew she had fertility issues, and immediately after marriage, she started receiving treatment for infertility.
But when all medical methods failed, she turned to fertility specialist Michael Kavara. After Many years , he was expelled from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine solely because of the scandal involving Nadia.
The American woman made her first attempts at IVF while still married. But the procedure didn’t result in a successful birth.
However, Suleman didn’t give up hope. She gave birth to her first child in 2001 – a son, and after some time, a daughter was born.
Nadia didn’t stop there: one by one, she gave birth to four more children, including twins. And by the age of 30, she had already raised four boys and two girls – Elijah, Amera, Joshua, Aidan, Kalissa, and Caleb.
