Octomom Nadya Suleman, who posed nude to reveal her post-pregnancy body for Closer magazine, says she isn't ashamed of her topless act.
The 36-year-old made the decision to go half-naked because the shoot was for a women's magazine not a men's spread and she didn't think the depiction would be "hyper-sexualised," reports tmz.com.
Admitting the move was made out of desperation as she's close to broke, she told the website: "I'm not ashamed of doing it. I feel as though no woman or man should be ashamed of their body."
When Suleman gave birth to octuplets in 2009, she already had six other children.
She had also received a million dollar offer to sign a porn contract in 2009. But she's not going to join XXX industry.
The mother-of-14 has been celibate for 13 years and all of her children were conceived through a sperm donor as she simply has no time for a man, reported Daily Mail. She said: "I get too much male attention, but I won't date until the octuplets are 18. I live for them."
What her attorney said:
Southern California attorney Jeff Czech said she agreed to a paid interview and semi-nude photographs for a British magazine because she's struggling financially. He said that with 14 children to care for, Suleman can't hold down a regular job to pay bills and "does whatever she can."
Czech declined to disclose how much Suleman was paid for the photo shoot and interview.
