She added, ‘Words cannot express how grateful I am to be your mother. You all have blessed my life immensely and I thank God daily for trusting me to care for, shape the lives of, and influence all of you.’

She then seemed to reference Kobe Bryant’s shock death on Sunday from a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. The athlete was with his daughter Gianna, aged 13. 

‘Recent tragic events of loved ones lost are a powerful reminder of how fragile, precarious, yet precious life is, as tomorrow is never promised,’ said Nadya.

‘We need to hug our loved ones a little longer and a little harder while they are here.

‘You are my miracles, my angels, and I will love you with all my heart, forever. Happy 11th birthday Noah, Maliyah, Nariyah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Jonah, Josiah, and Makai.’

In her hashtags she said she was ‘blessed.’

Earlier this month Suleman shared a rare photo her youngest kids.

The little ones were posing side by side in an outdoor setting for the image that made its way to the star’s Instagram page. 

Octo-life: In early January she shared a rare photo of eight of her 14 children

The caption read, ‘While Aidan was sitting, distracted with sensory exploration in the dirt, I snapped a quick picture of all the little kids together.

‘This is a rare occurrence considering how crazy active and energetic they all are!’

The hashtags were for #ActiveLifestyle #FitFamily #KidsBeingKids.

The Los Angeles resident first came to fame in 2009 when she welcomed octuplets after already having six children at home.  

In 2001 Suleman gave birth to her first child, a son. In 2002 she gave birth to her first daughter. 

Suleman continued IVF treatments which resulted in three further pregnancies (including one set of fraternal twins) for a total of six children (four sons, two daughters).

Another group shot: She said in May: ‘Mother’s Day can be an emotionally painful day for many. I feel your sadness. Throughout the six years of infertility (including miscarriages) I struggled with nearly 25 years ago, I believed God would never bless me with children’

She brings up all 14 kids in a three-bedroom home in Orange Country, California.

But the reality TV star said she never intended to have that many and was ‘misled’ by her doctor. 

The single mom told The New York Times in December 2018 that her doctor made her think she was only going to have twins. She ended up having eight children.

The star welcomed octuplets in 2009. She said Dr. Michael Kamrava, who has since lost his medical license and moved out of the United States, is the reason she has so many children, she says.

‘I was misled by my doctor,’ Suleman asserted. She thought she would have only two children.

But Kamrava implanted 12 embryos. ‘He told me we lost six embryos, he said they were expelled out of me, and that’s why he wanted to implant another six,’ Suleman claimed.

It was also claimed that she was already drugged and not completely with it when it all went down. 

Kamrava’s friend Rabbi David Shofet told the Times: ‘He told me he suggested to her not to keep all of them, but she said no.’

The Times said they could not reach Kamrava.

Suleman began IVF treatments in 1997, when she was 21 years old.  

Also in the Times interview Nadya said  she did not want to keep any secrets from her 14 children: ‘We talk about everything,’ she said.

And the star’s daughter Amerah has nothing but good to say about her mom: ‘She’s been fighting for our family for 10 years now. No matter what, she’s never going to give up and I know that.’

Her son Joshua told The Times that having so many siblings has its pluses. 

Her son Joshua said they like having so many siblings. ‘Some of my friends don’t have any siblings, so they want to know what it’s like. It’s nice to have someone to play with, but it can be overwhelming at times.’
