Who is Nadya Suleman's ex-husband? 'Octomom' celebrates 14th birthday of her octuplets
ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA: Adult film star Nadya Suleman, popularly known as the Octomom, celebrated the 14th birthday of her octuplets on Wednesday, January 25.
Suleman, 47, conceived the octuplets through IVF. She had six children earlier in the same way. The birth of her eight children sparked a fierce debate in the field of assisted reproductive technology, which resulted in the Medical Board of California investigating the doctor who aided Suleman.

Suleman reportedly celebrated her children's 14th birthday with a lot of pomp. In videos and photos shared by the Daily Mail, the beaming mother and her eight children were seen walking down a road with balloons (which spelled BIRTHDAY) in their hands. The children then went go-karting with their mother before pizza. They also sang together before chowing down on vegan donuts, as per TMZ.
In an interview with The New York Times in 2009, Suleman claimed that the reason she had so many children was because of Dr Michael Kamrava, a physician whose licence has been revoked and he has left the country. She maintained that he was responsible for her having so many children.
"I was misled by my doctor," Suleman asserted. She thought she would have only two children, but Kamrava implanted 12 embryos. "He told me we lost six embryos, he said they were expelled out of me, and that's why he wanted to implant another six," Suleman reportedly claimed.
