Nadya Suleman Octo Birthday Party (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

Nadya Suleman held what she described as a low-key birthday party yesterday for her eight famous babies.  We're sure by 'low-key', she wasn't referring  to the deafening decibel level at the milestone event.  The octuplet toddlers celebrated their first birthday on Monday, January 26, 2010.

Octomom served up pizza and cake to her brood of fourteen children and shared some insight into the family's current status.  She said, "I don't get much sleep -- about 2-3 hours a night.  But I'm continuing to move forward with my life and trying to be the best mother that I can be."

She prefers exercise to sleep, working out three hours each night while the children are all nestled in their beds and sleeping.  She works out four days a week at a neighborhood gym, usually starting at midnight.  The exercise routine has helped Nadya to shed 150 pounds.  She has gone from 270 to 120 pounds and recently debuted her new self in a red bikini on the cover of Star magazine - see pic in gallery below.

Suleman has the help of three live-in nannies and admits that it is getting more difficult now that the one-year-old tots are walking.  Add to that the fact that her three oldest children have developmental disabilities and it is clear it will never be a walk in the park for this mother.
