SulemanOctuplets mother Nadya Suleman told an online celebrity website that she wants her children to have a father in their lives but that the man was upset and resentful when he heard about her pregnancy.

"I want to apologize to him, but I feel like he resents me," she said. 

Suleman, who gave birth to eight children in January after undergoing fertility treatment, has not identified the sperm donor and has said in the past that she feels judged by the public for being a single mother.

In an interview with Radar Online, she said she used sperm from the unidentified donor to have her first six children. He did not know she had additional embryos and was "upset" when he found out she was pregnant with eight more babies, Radar said.

"That was my problem. That was my choice. That was my stupidity," she said. "I went behind his back and used them all. He didn't want me to. I feel so much guilt for that."

“I screwed myself. I screwed up my life. I screwed up my kids' lives,” she added in the video.
