Octuplets' Mom Shows Off New Bikini Body
Octuplets' mom Nadya Suleman is making headlines again, this time to show off her new "bikini body." Suleman, who appears on the cover of Star magazine, says she has lost 150 pounds since giving birth to her eight babies, reports The Mail.
"I wanted to prove to myself that I can do it on my own, naturally," Suleman told the Star, saying she did not require any plastic surgery to attain her new look.
"My friends call me Rubber Band because I always snapped back so quickly after my other kids!"
Suleman says she now weighs 120 pounds after topping the scales at 270 pounds a year ago.
The octuplets are about to celebrate their first birthday. The six boys and two girls, who were conceived by in-vitro fertilization, were born on January 26, 2009 at Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center. They are only the second set of octuplets to be born alive in the United States.
Suleman has been busy filming a reality TV show centering on her life in La Habra with the octuplets and their six brothers and sisters.
Earlier this month, a California appeals court rejected an attempt by a former child actor to create an independent guardian to look after her children's financial affairs. The court called the proposal an "unprecedented, meritless effort by a stranger."
