Man Who Has At Least 40 Kids With 20 Different Women Wants Even More


In the land of Monmouthshire, Wales, lives quite possibly the most fertile father on the planet.

Mike Holpin, 56, has produced approximately 40 children with 20 different mothers, Daily Mail reports, and sports a tattoo of his family tree on his back so he can remember his kids' names.

Holpin told Daily Mail,

Most of his children, whose ages range from 3 to 37, were taken into the custody of social services at early ages due to his alcoholism.

Twenty-two of them share Holpin's last name, and he says there are probably a few more children he doesn't even know about.

Holpin's baby-making escapades began in his late teens, when he got a job at a fairground.

He recalls,

Holpin openly admitted he doesn't believe in contraception and has doggy style sex if his partner isn't attractive.

Surprisingly, Holpin has only had six serious girlfriends, but they were all driven away by his alcoholism, which he is currently recovering from.

He says he sincerely regrets what his addiction has done to his kids and now wants to prove he loves each and every one of them.

Holpin says,

Holpin not only wants to reunite with his children but also have more with his fiancée Diane.

The Bible says to "go forth and multiply," he recalls, a command he intends to obey by procreating without end.

He can only pray his kids will forgive him for forcing them to grow up under the care of social services.

He states,

Holpin vows to do whatever it takes to form relationships with his children.
