Possible octo-dad steps into the spotlight

Donated sperm to Nadya Suleman when the two dated a decade ago

Yet another character in the octuplet circus emerged today: Denis Beaudoin, who claims he could be the biological father of Nadya Suleman’s eight children born last month. On Good Morning America  Beaudoin says he donated sperm on three occasions to Suleman while they were dating between 1997 and 1999 after she told him that she had ovarian cancer and would have difficulty conceiving without medical intervention. When he heard that she had delivered octuplets he was “shocked,” noting that Suleman is a very different woman — both in appearance and demeanor — than the one he dated a decade ago. The married business owner who has two children says the revelation has taken a toll on his family life: “[My wife is] not real happy about it,” he said “I mean, you can’t really blame her.”
