At least she tried! Natalie Suleman, better known as “Octomom,” was simply hoping to capture a sweet moment by having her family pose for a pic on Sept. 24 — but what resulted is even better. The former reality star may have won the award for the best photo fail ever. 

“So THIS is what happened when we attempted to take a fun family photo with as many family members as possible,” Natalie captioned the snap. “Per usual, Elijah, Amerah, and JJ are absent from the pic (growing up I despised taking photos so I understand and don’t force them). Aidan had enough of sitting and threw his head back nearly hitting mine, so this may explain why I look, ummm…startled.” The 43-year-old even joked how she appeared to be possessed in her relatable hashtags.

Fans were getting a total kick out of the mother-of-14‘s latest snap, because her soul appeared to be leaving her body, and some even noticed another hilarious aspect about the pic. “Beautiful! I love that photobomb from the cat,” one wrote. “What a big beautiful family (and a big beautiful cat) you’re doing a great job. You must be absolutely bursting with pride for them all,” another chimed in. Natalie’s continued to keep fans in the loop after making headlines as a single mother-of-six who was pregnant with eight babies due to IVF. 

Natalie had six children from her first five rounds of IVF: Elijah, Amerah, Joshua, Aidan, and twins Calyssa and Caleb. She also has octuplets, Makai, Josiah, Isaiah, Jonah, Maliyah, Jeremiah, Nariyah and Noah. After her brief career in adult entertainment to make ends meet financially, Nadya — or Natalie, as she prefers to be called now, turned her life around and her kids remain her No. 1 priority. On Aug. 27, Natalie shared a photo of her youngest kids during their first week back to school and they looked so cute. Keep up the good work!
