Elijah Makai Solomon was born on May 19, 2001, and is one of the 14 kids of the famous Nadya Suleman, also called ‘the Octomom’, for giving birth to octuplets. She had all 14 of her children through IVF. Nadya Denise Doud-Suleman was born on July 11, 1975, in Fullerton, California. She is the only child of Angela Victoria Suleman (born Stanaitis), a schoolteacher of Lithuanian descent, and Edward Doud Suleman, a Palestinian restaurant owner turned realtor who served as a translator in Iraq. In 1996, Suleman married Marco Gutierrez. They separated in 2000.
Nadia began IVF treatments at age 21 in 1997, under the supervision of Dr. Michael Kamrava. After Elijah, she gave birth to her first daughter, Ameerah Solomon in 2002. She continued IVF treatments which resulted in three further pregnancies, including two more sons, Joshua and Aidan, and one set of twins, Calyssa and Caleb. In 2009, she stated that she had six embryos left over from her previous IVF treatments and requested all of the remaining embryos be transferred into her uterus at one time. Her octuplets are six male and two female children born on January 26, 2009, named Nariyah, Isaiah, Maliyah, Jeremiah, Noah, Josiah, Jonah, and Makai.
In June 2011, during a California Medical Board investigation, it was found that Nadya’s doctor, Dr. Michael Kamrava had transferred twelve embryos, which the board found to be an “extreme” departure from the standard of care. After reviewing Nadya’s case, in combination with three other cases, the Medical Board of California voted to revoke Kamrava’s medical license, effective July 1, 2011.
