Feb 24, 2009— -- Nadya Suleman, the California woman who delivered octuplets last month, is willing to order a paternity test to prove that a man who twice donated sperm to her 10 years ago is not the father.

Suleman confirmed that while dating Denis Beaudoin from 1997 to 1999 she twice tried to become pregnant with him through artificial insemination but was unable to conceive.

The octuplets and her six older children were all conceived using one other man's sperm, she said through a spokesman.

"Absolutely, Denis is definitely not the father," said Suleman's spokesman Victor Munoz.

Munoz said Suleman, 33, was "absolutely willing" to submit the children to paternity tests, and that he had been trying "to get a hold of Denis all day and yesterday" to arrange testing.

On Monday, Beaudoin told "Good Morning America" that he donated sperm on three occasions in the late 1990s, and he believed he could be the children's father.

Munoz called the offer Beaudoin made on "GMA" to help raise the children, even if he is not the father, a ploy to reignite a relationship with Suleman, but the mother of 14 is not interested.

"He wants a relationship with her, and she doesn't want a relationship with him. They broke up for a reason," Munoz said.

Twice, he said, he gave Suleman a sperm sample at home, which she held between her breasts to keep warm. The third time, he said, he was brought to a fertility clinic after Suleman told him she had cancer and they were going to see a doctor.

"When they were a couple they tried to conceive a child. They were in a relationship and wanted to have a child together," said Munoz, who confirmed Beaudoin gave two samples at home.

According to Munoz, Suleman was artificially inseminated with Beaudoin's semen and no embryos were created for implantation. He said all of the sperm was implanted at the time and none remained to be used at a later date.

"The sperm was placed [directly in her womb]; it wasn't turned into an embryo and then placed. There isn't anything left over. It was all planted in the hopes it would work. It was the easier, cheaper version at the time and it didn't take," the spokesman said.
