Times have been tough for Nadya Suleman... tough enough to make her break promises such as the one to never do pornography.

Now, however, the woman famously known as Octomum has agreed to do a solo pornographic film.

According to TMZ, the mother of 14 completed her first day of shooting at a mansion in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles. It seems she was nervous, understandably so, when she arrived but relaxed after conversing with people on the set and other porn stars. She will be back on set next week to continue filming. The film is expected to release later this summer. A source was quoted as saying she was "a natural ... she looked great!!" She was reportedly shown pornographic films on a big screen as part of her initiation.

The world first noticed Suleman in January 2009, when she gave birth to octuplets at a Southern California hospital. She has 14 children, all of whom are the result of in-vitro fertilization. However, her six older children all have disabilities - one is autistic, another has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and the third a speech impediment. The older children range in age from five to 10 and she receives government financial support. Unfortunately, her house is under auction and she declared bankruptcy this week with total debts as high as $1 million.

"I have had to make some very difficult decisions this year, and filing Chapter 7 was one of them," Suleman said in a statement, "But I have to do what is best for my children and I need a fresh start."

She intends to buy a house with the money from the pornographic film and keep her family away from the limelight.
