"Octomom" and her kids: How the Octuplets look now
It’s been seven years since Nadya Suleman, who now goes by “Natalie”, made headlines as “Octomom”. Since then, her eight children – two girls and six boys – have grown up quite a bit.

Nadya Suleman already had six children when she went to an IVF clinic. She wanted one more child – but doctors implanted 12 embryos after telling her they didn't think the embryos would take. She ended up with octuplets. That's eight babies, people. Like four twins. 

Its been just over 7 years since giving birth. In a new interview with The Daily Mail, the mom-of-14 not only opens up about doing porn and struggling with drugs, but she also says she "killed" the Octomom character in order to save herself and her kids. Take a look through our then & now gallery of this famous family.  

Not exactly the first day (started Wednesday lol)...but close enough! #BackToSchool #ReadyForHomework #BeenALongLongSummer ??
