Nadya “Octo-Mom” Suleman is gushing about her new boyfriend, hunky bodybuilder, Frankie Grageda, but the two have yet to actually be intimate and their relationship is strictly platonic, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The 23 year old amateur bodybuilder and mother of 14 reportedly met at church and began dating shortly after. However, our sources say the new couple has yet to “seal the deal” physically speaking.
“Nadya and Frankie haven’t been intimate and they haven’t been physical,” the source says. “The relationship is strictly platonic and Frankie truly loves being around Nadya’s children. He has taken a very special interest in the kids and Nadya really likes that.”
Suleman recently revealed that she didn’t make a porn film for the money — but to overcome her fears of intimacy and sexuality.
“If I wanted to do it for me, I would have done it a few years ago…When I did it, I faced my own fear [without] avoiding it. It is sexy for me,” the single mom said during an appearance on The View, adding she “never even touched” herself prior to recording what was described as a Playboy style self-pleasure video.”
Suleman gained the world’s attention on January 26, 2009 when she gave birth to octuplets at a Southern California hospital. All 14 of her kids have come as a result of in-vitro fertilization.
