‘Octomom’ seeks to trademark nickname for TV, diaper line

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -The woman who gave birth to octuplets, Nadya Suleman, is seeking to trademark her media nickname - Octomom - for a TV show and a line of diapers.

Nadya Suleman may have been misquoted by a magazine that reported a TV deal, her lawyer says.

Word of Suleman’s federal trademark filings came as her lawyer confirmed he is talking to production companies about a TV show, but said reports of a signed deal are premature.

Suleman, who gave birth to octuplets in January, brought home the last and smallest of the eight babies on Monday, a hospital spokeswoman said. Suleman also has six other children. All 14 were conceived through in-vitro fertilization.

Suleman is not the only one to claim a trademark on the nickname. A Texas company not affiliated with her has filed to trademark an Octomom iPhone game.

“You press on her belly and she has babies,” the company’s CEO said.

One of Suleman’s lawyers filed her trademark applications Friday with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Washington, according to the documents. In the application, the word is spelled “OctoMom,” with a capital M.

One trademark would cover OctoMom disposable and textile diapers, dresses, pants and shirts.
