The former star of adult films was already the mother for Ameerah (Calyssa), Elijah Jonah, Joshua, Jonah, Joshua, Aidan, and Ameerah when she gave birth in January 2009 to octuplets named Nariyah/Isaiah, Maliyah/Jeremiah, Noah and Josiah.
The little ones turned thirteen in January 2022. California State University, Fullerton grad, meanwhile, celebrated the milestone with an Instagram tribute.
“You are all growing into some of the most kind, humble, grateful and loving human beings I have ever known,” Suleman captioned a family photo at the time. “Each of you possess rare and unique characteristics and are unlike any other child of your age, particularly in our society today. You are selfless and altruistic, not materialistic, loving, fearing, and followers of God. … I do not know what I could possibly have done to deserve being blessed so bountifully. I love you.”
The former psychiatric technie told the story The New York TimesIn December 2018, she moved in with her family to a three-bedroom California townhouse. Suleman said that her youngest children sleep on the couch together.
The Octomom at Home Alone star told the outlet that her kids know “everything” about her previous rehab stay and sex tape, explaining, “They know, they went through it with me. It’s a huge weight lifted off of all of them when I went back to who I was. Although we were in financial difficulties, it was such a blessing that we were able to get out of it. Those were chains.”
In August of the following year, she opened up about the “total care” that her “severely autistic” son, Aidan, requires.
Suleman called him her “adolescent infant” via Instagram at the time, writing, “He requires complete assistance in meeting all needs in activities of daily living. Aidan, who is nonverbal, needs assistance in feeding, changing (he isn’t potty trained), and bathing. His mother is, and has always been, his only care provider. This ‘job’ is my life (other than caring for 13 other children singlehandedly). My children are my LIFE.”
The 666 the Devil’s Child star went on to explain that she wanted to show her followers her “real life” and prove to “condemnatory critics” how seriously she takes motherhood.
