Man Fathers 21 Kids

From Leon Watson in Britain's The Sun:
A super daddy aged just 29 has set a new record in the US by fathering TWENTY ONE kids. Desmond Hatchett's children have 11 different mums and their ages range from a newborn to 11-years-old.
The prolific father even boasted of fathering four tots by different women in the same year.
His giant brood came to light after authorities in Tennessee took Hatchett to court for non payment of child support. His name appeared on official documents 11 times representing 15 of his 21 kids.
He has claimed he didn't plan to set a record, adding: "It just happened."
US authorities are now braced for more women coming forward to claim he is the dad of their children after he appeared on local TV. Hatchett, who earns minimum wage, told reporters he knows the names and ages of all his children. And he said the women he was involved with were all aware of his large family.
One mum, who has two kids with Hatchett, said she should get £44-a-month but rarely receives any child support. She revealed: "It's frustrating, but usually, when I ask he gives it to me." Hatchett told the TV station that he did not plan to have any more youngsters.
"I'm done. I'll say I'm done," he said.
