Nadya Suleman, who has become known through reality television as the "Ocotomom," made headline news after relying on in vitro fertilization to give birth to her fourteen children. Controversy stirred when Suleman requested eight more embryos be implanted, while she already had six children, and the maximum implant recommendation was two or three for her age. Suleman's doctor, Michael Kamrava, later had his license revoked over the controversy.
Raising new controversy, following Suleman's babies celebrating their third birthday to become the longest surviving set of octuplets, the Octomom has now posed nude for a British magazine. The picture depicts a 36-year old Suleman on the cover of Closer magazine, wearing nothing but a pair of nude underwear with her arm covering her chest.
The pose was meant to show how quickly the Octomom has snapped back into shape. "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," she told the magazine.
Suleman also claimed that she was paid $10,000 for the pose and stated that she needed the money after facing eviction notices from her La Habra home. "We are working on it," Attorney Jeff Czech told City News Service. "The foreclosure sale is not likely this month."
The Octomom posed naked after TMZ cited that she had sworn that she never would. However during a TMZ TV special, Suleman stated that she did not think the photos would be "hyper-sexualized" because she had posed for a woman's magazine.
"I'm not ashamed of doing it ... I feel as though no woman or man should be ashamed of their body," Suleman said on TMZ.
