In 1996, Suleman married Marco Gutierrez with whom she stayed together for 4 years, separating in 2000 and officially divorcing in January of 2008. The reason for their divorce was revealed to be failed attempts to have children.

Similarly, on 23 February 2009, a man named Denis Beaudoin claimed to the biological father of the kids on the edition of ABC's Good Morning America.

Current Situation

Nadya has gone through a lot raising her 14 children. The public backlash, death threats, lack of finances and her own spinal illness made it very difficult to raise her kids.

However, the children were raised well and happily. A 2018 article in New York Times stated at age nine, the children were "small for their age, but they’re polite, they cook, they’re vegan, they read two books a month and do their homework without being prompted. In spite of all of the horror stories in the tabloids since birth, they’re model fourth-graders."

She noted that Suleman’s households are run with “military precision” and the children are fed proper-organic plant-based diet.

Cox described the children as “happy, healthy, and well-mannered” and Ms. Suleman as going “from Octomom to Supermom”
