American media personality known as "Octomom" in the media. She came to international attention when she gave birth to the first surviving octuplets in January 2009. The circumstances of their high order multiple birth led to controversy in the field of assisted reproductive technology as well as an investigation by the Medical Board of California of the fertility specialist involved. She is the mother of fourteen children, all born via in vitro fertilization and implantation.

While she made the news when she delivered octuplets in January 2009, it was later revealed that she was a single mother with six children at home and she and her brood lived with her own mother. The six older children were ages seven, six, five, three and two-year-old twins at the time the octuplets were born.

When asked why she wanted such a big family, Nadya responded that she had grown up lonely, an only child, and always wanted a large family of her own.

She and the fertility doctor who implanted the embryos came under criticism especially as more information was revealed after the octuplets' birth: that Suleman is receiving state aid with her brood, a fact she first denied and is unemployed.

Suleman married in 1996 but was unable to conceive because of scarring and fibroid tumors. An ectopic pregnancy wreaked additional havoc so she began working double shifts on her job as an aide in a psychiatric hospital to pay for her IVF treatements (in vitro fertilization). Injured in an on-the-job accident, she went on disabilty and suffered depression and her marriage broke up. She says she asked a friend to donate sperm and continued to undergo IVF treatments. On 18 May 2001, Nadya gave birth to a baby boy, her first child, named Elijah. A daughter named Amerah followed in June 2002. Joshua arrived August 2003. She had gone back to school and began studying psychology, living on a small inheritance, student loans and her disability checks. Continuing her IVF treatments, she delivered Aidan in 2005, then twins Calyssa and Caleb in 2006. She says she wanted to use all the embryos created from her eggs and the last implantation resulted in the octuplets.
