Divorce papers of Nadya Suleman, the single mother of 14 children, reveal she split with her ex over irreconcilable differences.
The papers were filed by her ex-husband Marcos Gutierrez in May 2006, and the divorce proceedings spanned from October 2006 until January 2008, according to court documents.
Gutierrez and Suleman -- who is known as Nadya Doud in the filings -- were married in August 1996 but separated in January four years later. The divorce was finalized last year.
Gutierrez was not father to any of the children and requested that he not pay spousal support.
Suleman -- who already had six children before giving birth to the octuplets -- used the same donor, a friend, for all 14 kids. All of the children were conceived through in vitro fertilization.
"I went through about seven years of trying -- through artificial insemination," Suleman said in an interview with NBC's Ann Curry. "And through medication. And all of which was unsuccessful. And then the first -- IVF procedure from that-- from that facility -- it was successful. And then I just kept going in."
