“Octomom” Nadya Suleman Strips For British Magazine, Talks Celibacy
With the economy the way it is, we are all facing hard times. But can you imagine how hard those times would be having to provide for 14 children? Things for the "Octomom" have become so hard that she's done what she said she wouldn't do, stripped down for a magazine shoot.
Three years ago, Nadya Suleman made headlines by giving birth to 8 babies, bringing her total offspring up to 14. Since then, Suleman has found it difficult to find a regular job to support her large family. According to TMZ, Suleman accepted $10,000 to pose in a revealing photoshoot for Closer Magazine in the United Kingdom. Along with the photoshoot was an interview where Suleman discussed many things from plastic surgery to her current love life.
In the article, Suleman claims that her post-baby body is entirely from hard work and not plastic surgery,
“I just pinged back into shape like a rubber band after the kids – I don’t know how I did it.
“I eat like a horse, don’t count calories and have never owned a set of scales. I gained an entire human when I was pregnant with the octuplets – going from 10 stone (around 140 lbs) to over 19 stone (around 266 lbs) – but, two months later, I was a size 8 again. Now, I never weigh myself.”
The Octomom claims that the only plastic surgery she's ever had was a breast reduction at 17, going from a DD to C cup, though her pregnacies have put her back up to a DD. But the biggest revelation in the interview was that the 36-year-old mother has not been with a man since she was 23 (though the math doesn't add up),
“I’ve been celibate for 13 years and plan to remain so until the octuplets are 18. I’ve only ever slept with two men. The first was when I was 20 – we stayed in touch and he’s been my sperm donor, but we don’t talk now. The second was when I was 21. He was my boyfriend for five years. We tried for kids, but couldn’t conceive.”
“I wouldn’t rule out a relationship in the future. But now, when men look at me, I look away and they know not to approach me. I know I’m beautiful – I don’t need a man to tell me that.”
So she was with one guy at 20, another at 21 which she dated for 5 years, but hasn't slept with a man since she was 23?
Nadya also told the interviewer that she does not live on welfare or government assistance, but on the money she earns from publicity interview and photoshoots. But there are things Suleman will not do for money, having turned down a $1,000,000 offer from Vivid to appear in "adult films" in 2009. Posing the way she did for this magazine is something she said she wouldn't do, but understands that she has a lot of mouths to feed,
"I'm doing that because I need to feed my kids. I need to pay the bills. And I'm still very cognizant of the repercussions of my choices."
