Life canâ€™t be easy for a mom with 14 kids between the ages of 1 to 8 years old. Nadya Sulemanâ€™s guilt is also something she lives with every day, and she talked about that and many other things on Oprah. Read more about it below, and see more photos and video.
Before her idea to have the eight babies at once, she already had six children. It seems that this mom will do anything now to take care of her kids, and has even gone to some questionable measures to do so. Her decisions in life definitely make some people question, and she is now facing all of that.
The pseudo celebrity (as she calls it) was an only child, and Nadya Sulemanâ€™s guilt over her possible compensation for that with having many kids of her own is something she constantly deals with.
“Everything that [the media] have said so far about me, and about me wanting to do this on purpose — I never wanted to use children for fame.â€ť She talked about a possible â€śchildish desire to have a large family,” and “perhaps selfishness, trying to compensate for being an only child, trying to fill some missing piece inside.”
Though she is a single mom, who has three nannies helping her, she is determined not to use government help. She has done some appearances and the bikini magazine cover to help pay the expenses of providing for all of her kids. However, we also heard she won’t do reality TV! Though it is stressful she described her affection towards children.
“I believe I’ve always coveted that connection, that attachment to another human being, and it felt safer with children than a significant other.”
And with that love she tries to give her all, but still feels like she doesnâ€™t do enough.
“I live with a tremendous amount of guilt. I feel guilty when I look at the older ones, they all have different unique needs,” she told Winfrey. “I feel guilty when I’m holding one or two and I can’t be there for the others when they’re crying.”
Everyone will have their thoughts and opinions on the situation with Nadya Suleman. Guilt, stress and exhaustion are apparently things she canâ€™t get away from as we saw when Oprahâ€™s cameras followed her around the house for 24 hours. And no matter your thoughts on what she did, you canâ€™ deny that sheâ€™s trying hard!
