Life can’t be easy for a mom with 14 kids between the ages of 1 to 8 years old. Nadya Suleman’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 Suleman’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.” She talked about a possible “childish 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 doesn’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 can’t get away from as we saw when Oprah’s cameras followed her around the house for 24 hours. And no matter your thoughts on what she did, you can’ deny that she’s trying hard!

Let me know what you think about it and check out these pictures and video below.

    She won’t take government help? Doesn’t some of the older childrren get some sort of disabilty check? I think I read that before. She will and does take government help. Did she have insurance to pay the hospital for the birth of any of these kids or did the state pick up the tab? She is very selfish and I think she really thought she could profit from having 8 at one time due to other families that did so. Usually people/companies are really generous in helping with multiple births, then we found out this skank had 6 others at home – I decided, as well as many others, to not be so giving with this one. I agree she needs help with this many kids and her dr should lose his license for allowing this to happen. She sayd she has not had cosmetic surgery – what about those lips? Those are not natural.
