'I've lost 10 stone': Octomum Nadya Suleman poses topless as she reveals she 'pinged back into shape like a rubber band'
23:50 GMT, 26 March 2012
Most new mothers would recoil at the thought of stripping off for the camera after giving birth.
But Nadya Suleman, otherwise affectionately nicknamed Octomum, has posed nude to reveal her post-baby body – albeit with a pair of flesh coloured knickers to protect her modesty.
Now that her eight little tots have turned three, Nadya has finally shrunk back to a size she likes.
The mother of 14 has embraced her new shape, claiming that she has 'never looked this good'.

In fact, as she posed topless for Closer, Nadya is rather boastful in many aspects of her life, crediting herself with being 'such a good mother' and saying she is swamped with 'too much male attention'.
She also seemed a little irate that no one is giving her more praise, as she revealed: 'The kids have structure and
discipline and only eat healthily, they don’t know what candy is!
done a really great job with them. I don’t get any credit.'
Don't topple over: Nadya ballooned as she was pregnant with octuplets
Juggling so many children, Nadya
claims she has been celibate for 13 years and that all of her children
were all conceived through a sperm donor as she simply has no time for a man.
She said: 'I get too much male attention, but I won’t date until the octuplets are 18 – I live for them.
'I know a lot of women like male
attention, but I’ll go out with no make-up on and wear tracksuits, a wig
and even a fake pregnancy stomach to put them off.'
Yet it seems there is nothing Nadya can do to disinterest men as she has such a fantastic figure.

She said: 'I just pinged back into shape like a
rubber band after the kids, I don’t know how I did it. I eat like a
horse, don’t count calories and have never owned a set of scales.
'I gained an entire human when I was
pregnant with the octuplets, going from 10st to over 19st, but two
months later, I was a size 8 again. Now, I never weigh myself.'
The 36-year-old gave birth to her brood in 2009, and after the six boys
and two girls turned three in January, they became the longest-surviving
set of octuplets in American history.

While she claims to be proud of her shape, not even minding the stretch marks on her stomach, Nadya did admit that just two weeks after her C-section,
she began doing 50 sit-ups a day.
She also became a fitness fanatic, hitting the gym three times a week for two-hour stints in the middle of the
night while a friend babysat so she could 'get stronger'.
'I've never believed in diets,' Nadya said. 'I
just eat healthily. I’m a pescatarian and eat 15 portions of fruit or
vegetables a day. I eat so much!
'Now, I run 40 miles a week,
whenever my mum or a friend will babysit, but it’s still just for
stress relief. My eldest son (aged 10) even comes with me sometimes – he can
manage a couple of miles.'
Nadya, who claims to live off media interest rather than state
handouts (although she’s eight months in arrears on her mortgage and
facing eviction) says she won't rule out a future romance.
She added: 'I wouldn’t rule out a
relationship in the future. But now, when men look at me, I look away
and they know not to approach me. I know I’m beautiful – I don’t need a
man to tell me that.'
