She managed to lose her baby weight in mere months following the birth of her octuplets.
But Nadya Suleman, who delivered her eight babies via C-section, still bears a reminder of her high risk pregnancy.
The 36-year-old mother of 14 revealed stretched and scarred skin on her lower stomach and sides at a boxing match over the weekend.

The reality TV phenomenon, who has 14 children all under the age of ten, allowed the pictures to be taken of her midriff before entering the ring.
She has previously denied reports she underwent a tummy tuck surgery following the birth of the octuplets, insisting she lost the weight - and extra skin - naturally.

'No way,' she responded when asked if she had had surgery by America's Star magazine in January.

'I wanted to prove to myself that I can do it on my own, naturally. My friends call my Rubber Band because I always snapped back so quickly after my other kids!'
She also criticised reality TV star Kate Gosselin, who had twins and sextuplets, for going under the knife.
'I feel like it's cheating,' she said. 'It's her choice. If she has enough money to fix herself, let her. I have a better shape, though. I'm sorry, no offense to her.'
What a bump: Nadya and her bump pre birth
Suleman took part in a 'celebrity' boxing match on Saturday night in Fort Lauderdale, Miami.
She won a split decision in three one-minute rounds after going into battle with a local bartender.
The contest was promoted by the Celebrity Boxing Federation, which organises fights between names from the D-list spectrum.
CEO Damon Feldman claimed several hundreds attended the fight at the Ocean Manor Resort in Fort Lauderdale, but Miami Herald's count reported just 'three dozen' in attendance.
Octomom and her opponent, Playhouse Gentlemen's Club bartender Cassandra 'Patience' Anderson, wore clownlike, oversized gloves for their match.
Nadya would have made a sizable fee for the bout but the reality television mother, who successfully gave birth to eight babies in a single pregnancy, has long pleaded poverty.
She faced foreclosure on her California home after failing to meet monthly payments and said that she had considered suicide.

The octuplets are now two, while the older children are all under ten. All 14 were born through IVF and three of them are said to have disabilities.
Suleman became internationally famous when she gave birth to her eight babies – two daughters and six sons – in January 2009 after conceiving them through in vitro fertilisation.
Noah, Isaiah, Nariyah, Josiah, Jeremiah, Jonah, Maliyah are only the second full set of octuplets to be born alive in the U.S. – and not all of the previous set survived longer than the first week.
