Denis Beaudoin who believes he may be the father of some of the children that Nayda Suleman (Octo-mom) gave birth to has gotten the ok to have DNA testing done to determine whether he is in fact the father of any of the children. Nayda has 6 older children as well as the 8 newborn babies who made media history recently when they were all delivered alive.
Denis donated sperm to Nayda during the years that they dated between 1997-1999. She told him she couldnt have children the traditional way because she had ovarian cancer. They were in love at the time and wanted to have a child together. They broke up eventually and went their seperate ways. When he heard of these pregnancies and births…he immediately thought it was possible that he was the biological father. Nayda denies that he is the father and has ok him having the DNA testing to prove that he is not. Time will tell the truth about paternity. If it rules Denis out…then the questions will begin again about who in fact is the father.
Nayda says that she knows who is the father of her 14 children (yes, she says it is the same man for all the children); and that he wants to remain anonymous. Since Nayda and her children are allegedly receiving money from taxpayers for their support…many are outraged. If there is a father who is aware of his responsibilities and is not supporting them is that fair or legal? Should the doctor who implanted the embryos (allegedly too many for ethical invitro treatment) be held financially responsible for the support of these children?
At this point there are more questions than answers. Finding out whether Denis Beaudoin is in fact the biological father will help to eliminate some of those questions.
