Say What?

Nadya Suleman, the 33 year old single mom who gave birth to octuplets

last month has not had sex for eight years and vows to abstain until her children are grown and left home.

According to The Sun newspaper of London, Nadya insisted she hasn't been with a man since well before her eldest son, who is 7, was born through

in vitro fertilization.

"I can't remember the last time I went on a date," Suleman told The Sun. "Boyfriends? I think I'd have to be extremely selfish. I cannot maintain a social life and be a mother."

"To even take 1 percent of every night and devote it to someone else, a stranger, would be wrong," she said.

"I have to wait for that until my youngest have left school."

Suleman gained worldwide fame on Jan. 26 when she gave birth to Jonah, Noah, Maliyah, McCai, Isaiah, Nariyah, Jeremiah and Josiah. She's also endured a wave of negative press and even death threats for her decision to have so many children. In addition to the octuplets, Suleman also has six other children, also conceived through in vitro.
