Octomom Nadya Suleman is renowned for her gargantuan brood, which she welcomed into the world five years ago this weekend, January 26, 2009.

Yup, the Octuplets are turning five, which you probably didn't know, because for all her notoriety, the often scandal-plagued parent is fairly ... private?

Despite all the attention she's generated, including lately with her arrest for welfare fraud, Suleman has kept her big family largely out of the public eye.

At least when it comes to her kids, personal life and history. So who is the medical marvel who birthed the only full set of octuplets to survive the first week?

In honor of the kids' milestone Sunday, here are eight things you may or may not know about 38-year-old Nadya Suleman, forever known as Octomom ...

8 Outrageous Octomom Facts
Suleman, who was married from 1996 to 2008, has never publicly identified the father of any of her children, but says it's not her ex. BTW she has 14 kids. Yes, she had SIX BEFORE the octuplets.

Who's Your Daddy?

1. Who's Your Daddy?

Suleman, who was married from 1996 to 2008, has never publicly identified the father of any of her children, but says it's not her ex. BTW she has 14 kids. Yes, she had SIX BEFORE the octuplets.


She's a Porn Star, and an Award-Winning One at That

2. She's a Porn Star, and an Award-Winning One at That

Suleman's "Octomom Home Alone" won the 2013 AVN Award for Best Celebrity Sex Tape. That's like an Oscar for porn.


She's Very Religious

3. She's Very Religious

At least based on the Biblical names for all eight of her octuplets: Noah, Jonah, Jeremiah, Josiah, Isaiah, Makai, Nariyah and Maliyah. All have the same middle name, Angel. Suleman also chose to spell their last names Solomon.


She Attempted to Record Music

4. She Attempted to Record Music

Octomom actually recorded this single, called "Sexy Party." Listen at your own risk ... and only to laugh, because the auto-tuned mess is beyond terrible.


She's on Welfare ... and Shouldn't Be

5. She's on Welfare ... and Shouldn't Be

Nadya was receiving welfare checks while earning well over the treshold required to receive public assistance, an investigation found, and she was arrested in January 2014.


She Throws Down

6. She Throws Down

Suleman launched a short-lived boxing career in 2011, explaining she was stepping into the ring with a string of D-List celebrities because she was broke.


The Doctor Who Did This is No Longer a Doctor

7. The Doctor Who Did This is No Longer a Doctor

All 14 of Suleman's children were born through IVF treatments provided by Beverly Hills physician Dr. Michael Kamrava. The California Medical Board revoked his license, citing gross negligence.


She Takes it All Off For Money

8. She Takes it All Off For Money

While she doesn't like men touching her (for real) when it comes to making babies or making porn, Octomom will take her clothes off for cash at a moment's notice. In addition to her self-pleasure video, she's done strip club gigs and posed naked in magazines.

This note written by parents to their kids is pretty much what every parent wishes they could write ... but few would likely achieve success if they did.

Parents' Note to Kids

If you're a parent, you know sleeping in is living the dream. In fact, if you have young kids, you've likely forgotten what that concept even feels like.

If nothing else, your perspective on what sleeping in means has no doubt changed. But even one day of regular rest can change a lot, if you can finagle it.

How can you? Please read Exhibit A above, from start to finish.

The way mom outlines what they can and cannot do, and basically tells them how it's gonna be, all with smiley faces and love? It's the work of a master.

The major caveat is that the author of this persuasive manifesto is mom to two bigger kids (ages 8 and 10), but she tells Reddit that it was a success.

As for how you keep toddlers out of the bedroom ... good luck.

Last year, the birth of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby captivated the celebrity news world, and not just because the two larger-than-life celebs mated.

The name the duo picked out, North West, was an all-timer.

A unanimous, first ballot Celebrity Baby Name Hall of Fame inductee, North was clearly chosen after Kimye crossed off every other possible option.

Of course, they're not the first stars who treated naming a child like some sort of "art" or just totally mailed it in because they were too busy and/or high.

Seriously, coming up with baby names this dumb takes either serious commitment or total aloofness, both of which are forever worthy of our admiration.

Who else makes the HOF along with Nori? Let's find out.

Behold, the 17 Most Ridiculous Celebrity Baby Names:

17 Most Ridiculous Celebrity Baby Names
North West. The spawn of Kimye being named after a direction may be the dumbest thing in human history. At the same time, if she doesn't grow up to have a signature fragrance called North by North West, this is not a planet we wanna be living on.

North West

1. North West

North West. The spawn of Kimye being named after a direction may be the dumbest thing in human history. At the same time, if she doesn't grow up to have a signature fragrance called North by North West, this is not a planet we wanna be living on.


Destiny "Miley" Cyrus

2. Destiny "Miley" Cyrus

Yes, Miley's real name is Destiny ... which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but Billy Ray and Tish probably guaranteed she'd become a stripper someday with that moniker.


Apple Martin

3. Apple Martin

Ironically, Apple is both the name of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's daughter and likely the name of a food item forbidden in some rich crazy-person diet she probably follows.


Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale

4. Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale

We got nothing.


Kal-El Cage

5. Kal-El Cage

Nicolas Cage named one of his kids Kal-El, a fact not related to him being wasted out of his mind in this mug shot ... although that could explain a lot of things.


Bear (Kate Winslet and Alicia Silverstone)

6. Bear (Kate Winslet and Alicia Silverstone)

Not only did she torture us with The Reader, Kate Winslet is making her newborn's life terrible with Bear as his name. Alicia Silverstone chose this name too. And she chews up Bear's food for him, which is also interesting.


Blanket Jackson

7. Blanket Jackson

Blanket Jackson is not actually the name of the youngest child of Michael Jackson. It's Prince Michael Jackson II ... not to be confused with Prince Michael Jackson I (also pictured). As for his nickname, he was wearing a Blanket while MJ dangled him over a balcony. Good times.


Jermajesty Jackson

8. Jermajesty Jackson

Jermajesty. Michael's brother Jermaine outdid him with that one.


Suri Cruise

9. Suri Cruise

Suri Cruise, the child of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, is a bona fide cutie. Who will have to spell and explain her name approximately 10 times per day as an adult.


Tu Morrow

10. Tu Morrow

Actor Rob Morrow named his daughter Tu. GET IT? That's either a great play on words or the dumbest thing ever. Maybe a little of both.


Moxie Crimefighter

11. Moxie Crimefighter

Moxie Crimefighter is the daughter of Penn Jillette. That is all.


Pilot Inspektor

12. Pilot Inspektor

Pilot Inspektor is the son of Jason Lee. That spelling you are reading here is accurate.


Princess Tiaamii

13. Princess Tiaamii

Princess Tiaamii is the daughter of busty British babe and reality star Katie Price. We feel bad.


Denim

14. Denim

Toni Braxton named her kid Denim. Apparently "Polyester," "Suede," and "Cotton" were taken.


Kyd

15. Kyd

Yes, Kyd. David Duchovny mailed that one in worse than his alleged acting on Californication.


Bronx Mowgli

16. Bronx Mowgli

Bronix Mowgli, the son of Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz, is named after a borough of New York City AND a Jungle Book protagonist.


Maxwell Drew Johnson

17. Maxwell Drew Johnson

Jessica Simpson named her little daughter Maxwell. Perhaps she is trying to overcompensate for giving her an old man's name by putting her in this bikini.

Hopefully, with the looming end of America's longstanding military involvement in Afghanistan, clips like this become all the more common as 2014 progresses.

CBS This Morning documented a surprise reunion in North Carolina, where Marine Sgt. Kyle Street came home early after his fourth deployment in six years.

When his wife opened the door, her reaction was priceless ... as was her response when asked about the first thing the couple wanted to do upon being reunited.

Questions that probably don't need to be asked in retrospect, CBS. The second clip below, in the same video, shows a different kind of military relationship.

Derrick Jenkins, 13, was shooting free throws at basketball practice just before his unexpected reunion with his mother, who had been on tour in Kuwait.

His reaction to seeing her creep up on him is amazing. Check it out!

Two girls under the age of 13 were reportedly given tattoos by a babysitter who was subsequently arrested - as was the kids' mother, for how she responded.

Three Virginia adults in all - the babysitter, mother, and her boyfriend - were all charged with felony child abuse after the situation went from bad to worse.

Much worse.

According to reports, Alexander Edwards (left), 20, recently decided to give the young girls tattoos while they were under his care. It's not clear why, or of what.

Soon enough, their mother, Melissa Delp (center), and her boyfriend, Daniel Janney (right), returned home and saw what Edwards allegedly did to them.

At that point, Janney tried to remove the tattoos himself ... by burning them off.

"There was an effort to cover these tattoos up," said a sheriffs' department officer of the children. "It didn’t help the situation any. It added more scarring."

Taylor Smith, a 12-year-old Tennessee girl, recently passed away, at which point a letter she had written to future self (to be opened in 2023) was unearthed.

Smith outlined some life goals in the April 2013 letter, with the instructions "To be opened by Taylor Smith on April 12, 2023 only (unless said otherwise)."

The letter stayed hidden for the rest of her life, which was cut tragically short.

Just a few months after writing the heartfelt message to her 2023 self, young Taylor passed away from complications after a sudden onset of pneumonia.

Her grieving parents found it while sorting through her possessions:

  • Taylor Smith Letter
  • Taylor Smith Photo

Warmed by the memories of their daughter, Tim and Mary Ellen Smith decided to post it online, in the hopes that it would give others some solace.

In the letter, Taylor wrote to her 22-year-old self like an old friend:

"I'm know I'm late to you, but as I'm writing, this is early, so: congratulations on graduating high school! If you didn't go back and keep trying. Get that degree!"

It started as a mere Tweet.

And it has grown into a national debate.

On Saturday night, celebrity chef Grant Achatz Tweeted a complaint that a crying baby inside the restaurant Alinea was causing major problems.

“Tbl brings 8mo.Old. It cries. Diners mad," he wrote. "Tell ppl no kids? Subject diners 2crying? Ppl take infants 2 plays? Concerts? Hate saying no,but..”

Achatz then appeared on Good Morning America and added:

“I could hear it crying in the kitchen. We want people to come in and enjoy and experience Alinea for what it is, but we also have to be cognizant of the other 80 people that came in to experience Alinea that night.”

Achatz's 82,000 Twitter followers seemed split on whether or not babies should actually be banned from expensive restaurants, while we'd rather see some awful Hollywood mothers barred instead.

What do YOU think? Should babies not be allowed in high-end eateries?

Kids. They don't just say the darndest things. They also write the darndest things.

Take this note, for example, in which a student tells his teacher to get well soon… by pooping.

And now consider the following note, penned by an eight-year old many years ago and recently discovered by his mother.

She posted it on Facebook and included along with it an explanation that says the apology was "only a first draft," the victim was not seriously hurt and all siblings are now "grown men and very close."

That's good to know. Because at one point, man, Zachary REALLY hated Chris:

Jon Gosselin hates to say he told us so, but...

For the past few weeks, the former reality star has been trashing his ex-wife, referring to Kate Gosselin as broke and greedy and expressing outrage that she still used the ex-couple's children for publicity.

Then, this morning, this happened:

Kate dragged twins Cara and Mady on The Today Show to dispel the notion that they've been ruined by all the attention... only for the kids to grow silent when the topic arose.

And for Kate to scold the on national television.

Blue Ivy Carter turned two years old on January 7.

It was a big occasion for the toddler, one we marked with a Blue Ivy birthday tribute and one her famous parents celebrated by closing down Jungle Island in Miami, Florida for a giant party.

Queen Bey and Jay-Z were on hand, of course, and so were friends such as Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. All three women rocked some butterfly face paint for the occasion, while Blue opened presents and everyone seemed to have a grand time.

But don't take our word for it! Toggle through photos posted online by Beyonce herself and relive the celebratory occasion:
