Natalie Suleman, who became known as “Octomom” in the tabloids after her pregnancy with 8 babies, is celebrating her children’s 11th birthday.
Suleman, who previously went by Nadya, shares snippets of her life with 14 kids on Instagram, she does not usually post photos of them all together.
Last year, she revealed to the New York Times how she has to split her children up into groups for various activities in order to spend time with each of them – -even eating in shifts.
And while Suleman faced criticism for her large family, they lead a quiet, normal life. All of the kids are vegan, they do well in school and love to read.
The celebratory post read:
“Happy birthday to my beautiful angels. You are some of the kindest, most compassionate, caring human beings I’ve ever known. Words cannot express how grateful I am to be your mother. You all have blessed my life immensely and I thank God daily for trusting me to care for, shape the lives of, and influence all of you. Recent tragic events of loved ones lost are a powerful reminder of how fragile, precarious, yet precious life is, as tomorrow is never promised. We need to hug our loved ones a little longer and a little tighter while they are here. You are my miracles, my angels, and I will love you with all my heart, forever. Happy 11th birthday Noah, Maliyah, Nariyah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Jonah, Josiah, and Makai.”
