Most Fertile Man In World Also A Cad Who Wants A Break On Child Support

When news broke last month that 22-year-old Alaskan Levi Johnston was expecting his second child, some spoke in disbelief about his powerful reproductive assets. But he’s sterile compared to Tennessee’s 33-year-old Desmond Hatchett, who set a Knox County record for the number of kids a person has fathered. Don’t think the dad of thirty is super thrilled to have experienced the greatest gift of life thirty times, though. He’s claiming he needs a break from child support.
The Knoxville guy, who conceived all his little ones with eleven different baby mamas, has returned to court asking to pay less for the youngsters he has sired.
“I had four kids in the same year. Twice,” he told FOX. Sure that’s a lot for a fellow with a minimum wage job, but what about the women who carried these babies and dealt with the nuisance and pain of pregnancy?
It looks as though he’s not going to hold up his end of the bargain. As the Daily Mail put it, the virile dude can only afford to give each of his baby mamas $1.49 a month. That’s not even enough for a Starbucks coffee! According to CNN, the average cost of raising a child has risen by 40 percent in the last ten years, and one year of taking care of said child can cost up to $13,830. So yeah, it goes without saying that Hatchett is way behind.
But let’s not be too hard on him. The poor thing is struggling to provide for his family (ever thought of seeking a better job?), and the fact that he knows the names of all his kids should not be downplayed. The Daily Mail says he’s fully capable of identifying each of his thirty younguns:
Asked in a TV interview whether he can “keep up with it all,” the 33-year-old said he knows all their names, ages and birth dates.
Now that’s Father of the Year material!
