Father of 30 children seeks relief

Desmond Hatchett now has 30 children by 11 women.

Desmond Hatchett, a 33-year-old man living in Knoxville, Tennesee, is seeking relief from the court in that state. He is the father of 30 children, sired with 11 different women, who range in age from 14 to less than 3 years old. This is believed to be a record for Knox County, in the Volunteer State.

Hatchett has a minimum-wage job and is required to pay approximately half of what he earns in child-support payments. Some of the mothers of his children receive as little as $1.49 per month in support from him. He petitioned a local court on May 15 to be relieved of some of the burden

Hatchett told a court in 2009 that he would stop siring children, after being cited at that time for failure to be child support. At that time, Hatchett had 21 children and claimed he was "done" with fatherhood. “I had four kids in the same year. Twice," he told Volunteer TV in 2009.

Hatchett, however, is not the only serial father to make headlines. NFL player Antonio Cromartie, 28, for example is known to have fathered 10 children by eight women in six different states.
