Nadya Suleman - Octomum’s struggle for existence

Nadya Suleman - Octomum’s struggle for existence

Mangaloretoday/ Yahoo

Nadya Suleman, nicknamed Octomum after giving birth to octuplets, has shown off her post baby body in a topless photo on the cover of Closer magazine, to pay off her bills.Financial struggles have led "Octomom" Nadya Suleman to pose semi-nude for ’Closer’ magazine alongside a paid interview, her attorney said .



"I’m doing what I need to do to take care of my kids," Suleman said. With 14 children to care for, Suleman can’t hold down a regular job to pay bills, lawyer Jeff Czech said.




File photo shows Nadya Suleman and her large family plus helpers launch their signature Milkshake at ’Millions of Milkshakes’.

Suleman, who lives on state benefits, once admitted that she hates her babies as she found it difficult to properly discipline the kids who were getting more and more out of control.


"The only way I can cope is to lock myself in the bathroom and cry. Sometimes I sit there for hours and even eat my lunch sitting on the toilet floor. Anything to get peace and quiet," she was then quoted saying. The reality TV mother has even considered suicide and added that she regretted having them although she loves them.



Meanwhile Sulema’s neighbours say living next door to her is a never ending nightmare. They claim there is rarely a moment’s peace day or night, citing stories of relentless screaming and crying coming from her home in La Habra, California.


Neighbours, including children as young as ten, also find themselves having to show ID to the police simply to gain access to streets around Suleman’s home. Apart from it, just the fact that she lives in the neighbourhood is damaging property value as estate agents must disclose that the unemployed 35-year-old lives nearby.



As the youngest eight of her kids have turned three, Suleman claims she "never looked this good". All 14 of her children are the product of the same donor, and after the six boys and two girls she gave birth to in 2009 turned three in January, they became the longest-surviving set of octuplets in American history.



The mother of 14 has already had a boyfriend and even been married, but proclaims to never have indulged in physical intimacy with either of them as she "only wanted babies". "I only had one boyfriend my whole life and I never loved him," she said.


"I’m the kind of person who can be with a man for years and never touch him. My mind is not wired that way. I don’t need that kind of thing. People need sex, but I don’t .. I have zero sexual interest," she added.



The 36-year-old says she just "pinged back into shape" after the birth of her kids. "I just pinged back into shape like a rubber band after the kids, I don’t know how I did it. I eat like a horse, don’t count calories and have never owned a set of scales.

While she claims to be proud of her shape, not even minding the stretch marks on her stomach, Suleman did admit that just two weeks after her C-section, she began doing 50 sit-ups a day. She also became a fitness fanatic, hitting the gym three times a week for two-hour stints in the middle of the night while a friend babysat so she could "get stronger".
