It is not at all hard to believe that it has been almost 13 years since Nadia Sulman, the world-famous “Octomum”, gave birth to her eight children while the world was watching her with admiration.
Nadia (now known as Natalie after simply avoiding the name “Oktom” in public) in 2009 incredibly, she was able to give birth to eight children at once, thanks to HIV.
By this time, on their thirteenth birthday, the infamous mother of many has paid a sweet tribute to her “rare and unique” children as they all enter their youth together.
Sharing the beautiful stories of her eight children as they hug their mother and her father, Edward Sulman, on their bed.
“Happy 13th birthday to Naria, Isaiah, Malia, Jeremiah, Noah, Josiah, Jonah, and Machiavelli,” wrote the 46-year-old.
“You all grow up with humble personalities, humble, grateful and loving human beings whom I have never known in my life. Each of you is endowed with rare and unique features, and unlike any other child of your age, especially in our society today. You are absolutely selfless, selfless, immaterial and loving, fearful, followers of God. “I have never seen children who love and want to serve others (especially those who are a little unhappy in their lives) as brave and confident as any of you,” she added.
The proud mother, who regularly shares the daily life of her growing family and many photos on social networks, concluded by saying: I have no idea what I could do to be so blessed by God. I love you “
In 2008, Natalie was implanted with 12 embryos by Dr. Michael Kamrava, a Beverly Hills fertility specialist who also implanted her during all six previous HIV pregnancies with the help of an unknown sperm donor.
She began spreading the word on the Internet that when she gave birth to six sons and two daughters — Noah, Josiah, Nariah, Malia, Jonah, Jeremiah, Isaiah, and Maachah, she signed many lucrative deals for the well-being of her children. She was most interested in her extremely rare few pregnancies and births.
Nadia (Natalie) Sulman became particularly famous in 2008. When 12 embryos were implanted in her womb, of which only eight remained.
But life did not go well for the 33-year-old at the time, and he became addicted to alcohol and drugs, as he had a brief career in pornography, and it all came to an end. He once confessed that he even decided to commit suicide because of that pressure and severe mental condition.
“I have PTSD from all the journalists who have been visiting for years,” he told The New York Times recently. “I was ready to take what I could that day and forgive.” I was going through a dark hole. There were no other healthy and good opportunities for Octomom! I did what I was told to do, and I did what I was told. When you try to pretend that you are not something, at least for me, you end up disappointed in everyone and everything. ”
Many questioned how the children would behave when they all lived in a small house with only three bedrooms and some had to sleep in a bed. But all this shocked and surprised everyone.
Holidays that are full of complexity are neither fun nor comfortable. My heart goes out to those of you who suffer and are unhappy during these holidays. If you have lost a loved one, especially because of a devastating epidemic, and these are your first holidays without them, believe me you are not alone. I feel sorry … I pray for peace of mind and soul, and that You believe in hopeless and very difficult times, as no one can be eternal. I believe that thinking and appreciating what we have, instead of worrying about what we do not have, evokes feelings of gratitude and inner spiritual joy.
Natalie is also the mother of Elijah, 20, Ameria, 19, Joshua, 17, Aiden, 16, and about 14-year-old twins Kalisa and Caleb, who were also born with HIV.
The busy mother also advocates a vegan diet for how well all of her children behave, and says she still avoids being the center of attention in order to give them all a prosperous life and make them all healthy.
“My children do not get sick at all and I do not get sick either,” he told The NY Times. “From day one, I always fed them healthy food. I hate cooking. I do not like to do housework. ”
He also added: “They are considered the only eight occultations in the history of mankind. I raised them to be mentally calm and to be able to sleep and wake up peacefully. ”
Natalie works as a full-time counselor and relies on her family and all her friends to help her with schoolwork and fill in all the gaps.
Although he is proud of all his children, he admits that life has not been easy and he is not so sure that he would be able to inject eight children if he had time again, especially because of the consequences. His health began to deteriorate sharply. Despite having breast augmentation and plastic surgery, Natalie says her body has never looked the same since she was eight weeks pregnant.
“Four of the five discs in my gallbladder are almost torn and completely plowed,” he said. “Think that jellyfish pastry can decompose and it hits the nerves, causing danger to bilateral sciatica. And that can have irreversible consequences. And I have peripheral neuropathy. For years I have not felt my toes on the right side at all, and my toes are becoming more and more numb every day. The reason for the pregnancy was: The eight children. “
