Becoming A Mother
Nadya Suleman embarked on her journey to realize her dream of starting a family after graduating from high school. She may have wished to attend college like other young women her age, but becoming a mother remained her top priority. Nadya was a teenager at the time, and some say she was a bit naive! She had no idea what was in store for her in the future.
Nadya’s First Love
Nadya Suleman met her future husband, produce manager Marcos Gutierrez before she turned 21. She felt an instant connection with him, and that connection grew deeper and more meaningful over time. Nadya was open and honest with Gutierrez about her desire to become a mother. It wasn’t a problem at first because Gutierrez wanted children of his own, and he and Nadya were madly in love, but fate had other plans.
