Executive summary: Octomom

Nadya Suleman, or "Natalie Doud" as she was known in high school, was born in Fullerton to a veteran of the Iraqi Army and his schoolteacher wife. She became a psychiatric technician at Metropolitan State Hospital in Norwalk, California, before taking disability in 1999. In 2006 she received a degree in child and adolescent development at CSU Fullerton, but abandoned her graduate studies. Between 2001 and 2006, she received in vitro fertilization treatments, resulting in six children. Her husband divorced her in 2006 because they were having difficulty conceiving children. Not wanting good embryos wasted, and despite the fact that she had no means whatsoever of financial support, in 2008 Suleman had her remaining embryos implanted. All six gestated, and two of them resulted in twins. She gave birth to the octuplets in 2009, and was dubbed the "Octomom" by the media. The sheer absurdity of all aspects of her situation engendered both ridicule and disgust, as well as increased scrutiny. Her mother's house, in which she had been living, was found to be under foreclosure. And people noticed that, when comparing older photographs of Suleman, Suleman more and more resembled actress Angelina Jolie. Suleman denies having undergone any plastic surgery, but Jolie was quoted as being "totally creeped out."
