Octo-Escorts Make Money, Money, Make Money, Money

Los Angeles -- La Habra police officials said Friday they've tallied $4,000 in overtime pay to escort octuplet mother Nadya Suleman and her children since they moved to the city last month.

Police spokeswoman Cindy Knapp said La Habra won't ask Suleman to help pay for police escorts and patrols. Knapp said police services are free to residents of La Habra, according to the Associated Press.

Reporters and photographers swarmed Suleman's house March 17 when she brought home the first two of eight babies. She gave birth to the octuplets on Jan. 26.

She already had six children. The six older siblings are ages 2 to 7.

The last of the world's longest surviving set of octuplets was released from the hospital Monday night after spending more than two months in the neonatal intensive care unit. 

In other octo-news, Suleman wants to trademark her "Octomom" moniker. She filed two applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on April 10.

Suleman wants to put the Octomom name on television programs, clothing and disposable and cloth diapers.
