When Nadya Suleman, otherwise known as Octomom, gave birth to eight healthy babies in 2009, the world was abuzz. Now, more than a decade has gone by, and the octuplets are all grown up. We take a closer look at each of them to see what they look like today.

Introduction to the Octuplets

In January 2009, the Suleman octuplets made global headlines when they were born, making them the longest-living set of octuplets on record. At the time of their birth, the octuplets included five boys and three girls.

The names of each of the Suleman Octuplets are:

  1. Maliyah
  2. Amerah
  3. Noah
  4. Isaiah
  5. Jeremiah
  6. Jonah
  7. Caleb
  8. McCai

Octomom’s Story

Nadya Suleman, the octuplet’s mother, had already been raising six children from her previous pregnancies. Prior to the birth of her octuplets, Suleman had fertility treatments using embryos created with a sperm donor. After their birth, Suleman was criticized for her decision to have more children.

Suleman had received a great deal of support from the medical professionals at the Kaiser Permanente facility where she underwent in vitro fertilization treatments. She was born in 1975 in Fullerton, California and raised in La Habra, California.

Since her octuplets first-ever appearance, Suleman has appeared in numerous magazine articles, tv shows, and reality shows. In addition, she had several endorsement deals.

Octuplets Are All Grown Up

As of 2020, the Suleman octuplets are no longer infants. They have grown into young adults and adolescents. Let’s take a look at each of the octuplets and see how they have changed over the years.


Maliyah is the eldest of the octuplets, born weighing 3 lbs. 2 oz. At 11 years old, Maliyah is a vibrant and outgoing young girl that loves to be active. She plays on the soccer team at her local park and loves to be in the outdoors.


Amerah is the second eldest of the eight siblings, born weighing 3 lbs. 6 oz. At 10 years old, Amerah is like a miniature version of her mother – she loves to be social and often takes center stage at family gatherings, telling stories and making everyone laugh.


Noah is one of the two youngest boys, born weighing 3 lbs. 9 oz. Now 8 years old, he is an active, energetic young boy who loves playing sports and spending time outdoors. He especially loves basketball and often competes in local tournaments.

He loves playing chess and has recently become quite proficient at the game. He is often spotted at local tournaments, competing against seasoned players.


McCai, the eighth eldest and youngest of the octuplets, was born weighing only 2 lbs. 15 oz. Now 8 years old, McCai is the most adorably mischievous of all the octuplets. He loves to play pranks and often has his siblings in stitches with the gags he pulls, even if they often backfire on him!

Octomom Lives Quiet, Private Life

Nowadays, Octomom is living a much quieter, private life. She has left behind the spotlight and the paparazzi to enjoy a peaceful life with her 14 children. She had moved to Palmdale, California and is focusing on motherhood and her career as a fitness instructor and speaker.

The Suleman octuplets have grown up right under our noses over the course of the last decade. We no longer see cute little babies, but rather a group of confident, nature-loving and artistic young adults and adolescents.

Now that they’ve grown up, we can watch them as they take the world by storm and demonstrate the amazing strength and resilience of the human spirit. It’s clear that Nadya Suleman is proud of her octuplets and the strong individuals that they have grown into. We wish all eight of them the best of luck in their endeavors and may the future bring them only happiness!
