Octet turned 14!
Nadya Suleman celebrated her youngest child of eight’s 14th birthday with an emotional message on Instagram Jan. 27. The 47-year-old mother posted a photo of the octuplets sitting on a couch in front of a mantelpiece, with gold balloons spelling out the word “Birthday”. and smile broadly at the camera.
“Happy 14th Birthday to Noah, Mary, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Nariah, Josiah, Jonah and MacKay! You are the most loving, thoughtful, conscientious and humble human being I have ever known.” the proud mother captioned the shot.
“The struggles we’ve endured over the years have strengthened our bond with one another,” she continued. I am immeasurably blessed to be your mother.I love you.”
Fans jumped in the comments and sent their own birthday greetings to the kids.
“Happy birthday everyone. I can’t believe it’s been 14 years since you were born,” another wrote.
In 2008, Suleman became an Internet sensation when she became pregnant with eight children after in vitro fertilization. She had previously resorted to her IVF to welcome her six older children.
In August 2022, the busy mom shared a back-to-school photo of her octuplets on the first day of eighth grade on Instagram. Next to the image she wrote, “Be proud that your children have been kind, respectful, and helpful to all of their peers, teachers, and staff. You are a great 7th grade role model and I love you.”
Suleman added a note to her “critics,” revealing that six older kids told her they didn’t want her to post photos of their first day of school.
“I respect their choice and you should too,” she wrote.
Suleman frequently documents milestones in the octuplets’ lives over the years, such as birthdays and back-to-school photos.
On the first day of fifth grade in 2019, Suleman shared a photo on Instagram of the eight pairs posing together.
“I love each and every one of you unconditionally,” she wrote in the caption. Kids, thank you mom for being so patient and posing for this last second, first day photo!”
She added the hashtag #ProudMomma.
