When Ms. Suleman gave birth to octuplets in 2009, she was an unemployed single mother who already had six children. All her children were conceived through in vitro fertility treatments.

Her octuplets are the world’s longest-surviving set.

Since the birth, she has cut deals with media outlets and posed in tabloid photo spreads to earn a living. She has promoted spaying and neutering for an animal rights group and gotten beat up in a celebrity boxing match.

In 2009, Ms. Suleman declined a million-dollar offer to appear in pornography.
