Back to 2009 for a moment.
We were in the middle of a recession.
Everyone was afraid of Lady Gaga.
People wore things called “bumps.”
And Justin Bieber was just 2 years old posing with puppies.
One person in particular had a stranglehold on the *blogs* like no other, and that person was Nadya Suleman.
Her nickname was ‘Octomom’.
For those unfamiliar with the sitch, Nadya had octuplets via in vitro fertilization (IVF). She had 12 embryos implanted and ended up with eight children.
Nadya already had six children before IVF, and she had eight more after that. She was also unemployed.
Her life became a spectacle.
And eventually things got out of hand, and the shit was a mess.
Nadya sold milkshakes.
She did boxing matches for celebrities.
Advocated for PETA.
Participated in roasts.
And even did porn.
Her life was a mess.
But we are now 13 years later and Nadya is active on Instagram.
Frankly, she looks good.
The octuplets are now 13 years old.
They are teenagers!
Here’s what she posted for their 13th birthday:
“My family’s life literally revolves around God, food, and fitness (in that exact order lol),” she says.
In case you haven’t done the math, Nadya has a total of 14 kids.
They also have a cat named Penelope.
In a recent IG comment, she said their connections are “stronger than ever”.
Things are looking good in Suleman’s household…
…or as best you can with 14 kids, LOL.
Definitely more chill than they were 13 years ago!
So yeah, there’s your annual Octomom update.
We are all old. Bye.
