Possible Octuplet Dad Gave Sperm Because He Was in Love With Suleman

Denis Beaudoin, the man who says he could be the biological father of Nadya Suleman’s octuplets, said he donated his sperm to her three times without asking questions because he was young and in love.

Denis Beaudoin, the man who says he could be the biological father of Nadya Suleman’s octuplets, said he donated his sperm to her three times without asking questions because he was young and in love.

Beaudoin said he thought it was “out of the ordinary” when she asked him to donate. “But I cared about her so much. And I mean, we were, we were in love. I mean, I loved Nadya very much,” he told Chris Cuomo in an exclusive interview with “Good Morning America.”

Beaudoin said he and Suleman had a “serious” three-year relationship from 1997 to 1999 when he was in his early 20s.

Though he and Suleman never talked about marriage, Beaudoin said when he donated the sperm he thought it would be part of “starting a family” together at some point.

He called Nadya “a really great girl” and thought she would make a good mother. His friends nicknamed her “Giggles” for her laugh.

“She really had a really infectious laugh. You know, just her laugh would, it would make you crack up. It’s kind of like she had a real high-pitch, squeaky cartoon voice. And, you know, she was a lot of fun to be around. Just her whole bubbly outward personality was really, really cool,” Beaudoin said.

But now Beaudoin said he sees a very different woman, both in appearance and demeanor, than the one he knew.

“She looks different, sounds different. You know, it’s just not the Nadya I remember,” he said.

Nor did Suleman express a desire to have a lot of children, he said.

“You know, I could say this is something that’s all new. The Nadya that I knew, it never, it never came up to have such a huge family. It was just an urge to have a child because she was not able to,” Beaudoin said.

Beaudoin said that at the time she first approached him about donating sperm, Suleman told him that she had ovarian cancer and was unable to conceive without the help of a doctor.

 

Wants to Help If He’s the Father or Not

Beaudoin said they had an amicable parting, but said he never heard anything more about Suleman undergoing in vitro fertilization or trying to become pregnant.

Beaudoin said he was “shocked [and] surprised” when he first learned that Suleman had delivered octuplets on Jan. 23.

Suleman has denied that Beaudoin is the father, but he said his multiple sperm donations are cause for a paternity test.

Beaudoin said her word isn’t good enough.

“It just seems like a lot of her statements that she’s made have been really inaccurate,” he said.

“I can’t take everything she says for granted. I mean when she initially told me the whole reason why, for donating sperm in the first place, you know was to get pregnant because she was not going to be able to have kids. And it, you know, has turned into this.”

Beaudoin said he wants a DNA test just to know the truth. Regardless of the children’s paternity, Beaudoin said he is willing to help the single mother of 14 raise the children because he does not believe she can handle it on her own.

“Either which way, you know, know that if she needs it I’ll lend a helping hand,” he said. “She needs help. I mean it’s hard. It’s hard nowadays to raise two kids, let alone 14.”

Beaudoin said he is coming forward now because he knew his name would eventually surface as the potential father and, considering the negative publicity surrounding Suleman, he wanted to tell his story first.

Beaudoin said he tried to reach out to Suleman but she never returned his calls. Now a business owner with a wife and two sons, Beaudoin said the entire ordeal has been very hard on his family.

“You know my wife, she’s not real happy about, you know, the whole situation. I mean, you can’t really blame her. I mean I kind of threw this in her lap after, you know, it kind of hit the news,” he said.

Though he said they dated for three years, Beaudoin now believes Suleman was married at the time.

Controversy Surrounds Suleman

ABC News has learned through San Bernardino Superior Court Records that Suleman, 33, divorced her husband, Marcos Gutierrez, in January 2008.

Possible Octuplet Dad Gave Sperm Because He Was in Love With Suleman

Denis Beaudoin, the man who says he could be the biological father of Nadya Suleman’s octuplets, said he donated his sperm to her three times without asking questions because he was young and in love.

(ABC)

The divorce document indicates “no children of the marriage,” suggesting that Gutierrez was not the father of Suleman’s previous six children.

When asked if Suleman, who lives with her parents and collects food stamps, could handle raising another eight children, the possible biological father said, “No.”

Suleman made headlines in late January when news that she delivered eight viable babies was heralded as a medical marvel.

In the days that followed the Jan. 23 delivery, critics raised a host of questions about the single mother who had previously given birth to six other children, all of whom had been conceived through artificial insemination, and about her ability to financially support 14 children.

Suleman is unemployed and lives in a three-bedroom home with her parents, who have publicly criticized their daughter’s decision to have so many children.

Property records show Suleman’s mother, Angela, owns the home and is $23,225 behind in her mortgage payments. The house could be sold at auction beginning May 5.

Suleman told NBC that she does not intend to go on welfare. Earlier this month, her then-publicist said Suleman already receives $490 a month in food stamps and child disability payments to help feed and care for her six other children.

At least one of those children is believed to have autism.

Critics also have attacked a fertility doctor for implanting eight embryos in Suleman’s womb during her attempts to get pregnant.

“I’m really angry about that,” Angela Suleman told RadarOnline. “She already has six beautiful children. Why would she do this? I’m struggling to look after her six. We had to put in bunk beds, feed them in shifts and there’s children’s clothing piled all over the house.”

Suleman and her parents have not publicly named the sperm donor or the fertility doctor who implanted her with the embryos.

Earlier this month, Suleman told NBC’s “Today” that a single doctor helped her conceive all 14 children.

While she did not reveal the identity of the doctor, a 2006 report by television station KTLA shows a grateful Suleman praising the work of Beverly Hills physician Michael Kamrava, who runs a fertility practice. In the report, he says that he used a controversial procedure that he claims makes it much easier to implant women with embryos.

Since the birth of the octuplets — who were born nine weeks premature at Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Bellflower, Calif. — a number of fertility experts and bioethicists have criticized Suleman and her physician for dangerously implanting so many embryos.

“Anyone who transfers eight embryos should be arrested for malpractice,” said University of Pennsylvania bioethicist Arthur Caplan.

Studies have shown that the tendency toward premature delivery and low birth weight in multiple-birth babies puts them at greater risk for a variety of complications, including respiratory problems at birth, cerebral palsy, birth defects, sensory disorders and even death. These risks increase as the number of babies in the multiple birth increases.

A California-based nonprofit called Angels in Waiting has offered Suleman round-the-clock care and a place to stay with her 14 children. It would cost about $135,000 a month to provide the 12 caretakers necessary for the children, money that would have to come from public donations.

    Octupus strikes again! What a two-faced paradox this woman is. Nadya’s statement as to why she couldn’t destroy embroys is a bizarre paradox. She claims she wouldn’t want children out there that she didn’t know. HELLO! The sperm donor has children out there that he does not know. I think Beaudoin is straight up. I bet my cards on him. Nadya Sulemen has more than proven to be a psychopathic liar. Nadya’s Octups are noticably bi-racial looking with the exception of one fair-haired preemie. Rest have tons of black thick infant hair; significant with bi-racial babies. Her other six have same bi-racial looks. Re public records: Beudoin’s father is white, mother is black. Sulemen’s father is Arabian, mother is Lithuanian. A very mixed bi-racial gene pool to draw from!

    Beudoin has VERY good reason to take a DNA test. Nadya’s very twisted tales can’t be trusted. There are some who question if a sperm donor is responsible to pay support for offspring. Catch 22 deal! Yes and No. Yes, he is responsible. That is UNLESS he signed a valid contractual agreement while at the IVF clinic, which he states he has no parental rights. Signing is a given, the usual practice that happens at ANY legit IVF clinic. Sperm donor can choose to have his name disclosed or not disclosed. His name will not be released if he has requested so in writing — BUT he MUST be present to sign his REAL name on the IVF contract. A woman can’t go around collecting sperm in a back alley, stick the sperum cup in her breasts to keep warm and run off to an IVF clinic without a legit doner present to attach name to the sperum and sign agreement. The forgery of a sperm donor’s name or — omitting of the agreement could only happen in a clinic ran by an unthical Doctor. Dr. Kamarava comes to mind. After all, Nadya worked in a ferility clinic and my guess would be she worked for Dr. Kamrava at his clinc.

    Another hoop — is that Nadya was legally married for 12 years when –implanted; she wasn’t legally divorced nor had a legal separation. Her divorce was final 2008, no children by tmarriage to Marcos Gutierrez. Yet, Sulemen bore six children every year for six years, then — had eight Octups in 2009. JHC! In a span of 13 years; 1996-2009. If every wife could decide who the father of her unborn is to be and her husband have no say — then what? This is a legal issue far from kosher!! Nadya wanted her own TV Show. Fantasy Island would be fitting. Ain’t over yet! Like they say, “it ain’t over till the fat lady sings.” Beaudoin is a husky guy and he has just sung. He strikes me as being very clean-cut, sincere, kind and likable guy. Go Denis!! Waiting with baited breath for that DNA to come back!!

    Did he sign rights over, I believe he donated my a cup at home. I bet she was sitting at home with a turkey baster. I don’t remember hearing she worked at a IVF clinic and possibly the her doctors one. I would bet the doctor took her samples she brought in telling him it was her husbands and he had pre signed for her to bring them in or he didn’t ask or care or knew it was some guys. Or I bet it is her Husbands but they did it in a way that he is not responsible. Her father said he met the guy once but didn’t say who or what he looked like other than nice looking. I was betting he looked like Brad Pitt.

    Thank God! Thank God! The beautiful children are here. It is our earthly duty to her the children and Nayla. I am willing to help and I live on the east coast. There need to be a website set up for donations so the children can receive excellent care. I am willing to give. And, alot of my rich friends are too. Some people don’t have the money to share with others, and that is okay. But, the Bible says give and it shalt be given to you. The economy is bad. People are hurting financially. But, there are still alot of wealthy individual like myself who would give to help them. The churches should step in right now since it is the holidays. Please help them. And, please set up a website with a credit card machine or paypal service for us to share out wealthy with the family.
