Man fathers 21 children by 11 different women... and he's only 29

By Paul Thompson

Last updated at 3:04 AM on 29th May 2009

A man aged 29 has fathered 21 children with 11 different women, it emerged yesterday.

Desmond Hatchett's brood came to light after authorities in Tennessee in the U.S. took him to court for non-payment of child support.

He has apparently set a U.S. record but said: 'It just happened.'

He's the daddy: Desmond Hatchett speaks to reporters about his prolific brood

He added that he would not have any more children. 'I'm done. I'll say I'm done,' he said.

Hatchett, who earns a minimal wage, told TV reporters he knows the names and ages of all his offspring.

Their ages range from newborn to 11 years old.

Authorities in Knoxville said they plan to take half of his monthly salary to pay for the youngsters but officials said that would work out to just over £1 a week for each.

His lawyer Keith Pope said: 'The children can't all be supported by Desmond, so the state of Tennessee has had to step in.'

Many Knoxville residents called for him to be castrated.

He even boasted of fathering four children by different women in the same year.

Hatchett's name appeared on court documents 11 times representing 15 of his 21 children.

U.S. authorities are now braced for more women coming forward to claim Hatchett is the father of their children after he appeared on local TV.

He said the women he was involved with all knew he had other children.

One mother, who has two children with Hatchett, said she should get £44 a month but rarely receives any child support.

'It's frustrating, but usually, when I ask he gives it to me,' she said.

Authorities in Knoxville ordered Hatchett to court to explain how he intends to pay child support.

He arrived for the hearing with just over £300.

I bet you former NBA player Shawn Kemp has him beat. Only thing is that his chidren are all across the country...mostly in NBA cities. Between these two I think they could go to an island and start a new country. Add Pitt/Jolie and you would have your perfect nation with cultural diversity.

What should they do with the mothers then? confused

I am sure there are many unrecorded records that would blow this guys situation out of the water. wink

I feel for the kids, but when two consenting adults (it takes two) decide to do something legal, what can you do.

I see a new reality TV show coming soon about this and a rush to break the current record and get on TV to follow smirk

At this point I would like my tax dollars going for EVERYONE involved to get some type of permanent birth control...I'll remember these wonderful people as I work my 14 hour days and they probably just work at watching reality TV all day...gggggrrrrr....it should be a law that people like this are fixed. We do it for animal control, why not stupid people control? :P

This is hilarious. [Admin Note: PoorWordUsage. Read Forum Policy before posting again. Thanks] I think we can get enough people on here to throw in a buck or two to pay for this guy's castration.

That's straight up child abuse. More wasted tax money because we have a few retards out there that do thing only thing they are smart of enough to, reproduce in mass.

I really hope this doesn't get a reality show. We don't want s any stupid lazy ****bags out there thinking this is the way to get famous.

The worst part of this is that I used to know a guy who was on social security disability because of his night blindness. He gloated because he had 5 kids with 3 women in 4 years. He's proudest accomplishment was having 2 on back to back 1 night stands. I haven't heard anything of this guy in a few years but last word was his gf was pregnant with twins. His kids are all screwed up. One was in Juvi, another was locked into a long term mental health facility, another was about to stand trial for attempted murder and another was in for drug rehab. All are under the age of 14.

Here's what makes me sick on this. There are so many good folks that want children and can't have them. To go through adoption you have to go throuigh hours upon hours of parenting classes. Then you have to be "Selected" to receive a child.

Guys like this have how many kids? And don't own up for them. Sickens me.

It's a cycle in life. All these kids and the kids of the guy being talked about is the next generation that will continue on with it. And unfortuanetly there is little we or any one else can do to prevent it from going on. And the trouble is that most in this, I hate to use the word. (Class of Citizens)!! Are taught or find out some how that we and the government are there to help them in the end.

Welfare,Food Stamps,can't recall the name of free medical help for low income and the list goes on. You see where I'm going tho. Yes these programs are needed to a point, but who out there hasn't heard a story how people use the system and beat it to stay on it.

My 2 cents worth

We can hope this guy gets hit by a bus one day. We would all be better off.

Yup. And those of us who chose to only have 2-3 kids, buckle up. They will outvote the productive class by voting themselves other peoples' wealth.

Only question is-- "why would anyone want that many kids--stupid or not???" eekeekeekeekeekeek Sounds like he needs a little edjacating.. Doesn't know how this could happen confusedconfused.

whistlewhistle

Then you got the mentally challenged (couldn't use the word I wanted) females who are actually reproducing with this guy???? They may need some edjacatin, too...

I think these gals got plenty of education. Whats the difference between this and people taking fertility drugs and ending up with 4 to 6 or 8 kids in one shot, pun intended.

Margaret Sanger(the first to coin the phrase "birth control" in 1926) be turning over in her grave over this guy and gals.

After seeing stories like this and stories like the octoleach it really test my beliefs. Maybe the Malthusian notion is the rout to go, though it goes against my principles but its nice to dream of that utopian society that will never happen as it would be at someone else's expense to achieve it. Who knows history sometimes repeats itself and eugenics makes a come back under even more secretive totalitarian ways.

DNA tests done? I smell welfare fraud. This downright stinks of welfare fraid. What an easy way out. Lets all claim he's the dad it's already big news welfare workers will be jumping over themselves to help any of the women claiming to be in on this one. I'm sure the number will grow yet until someone says hey wait a minute something isn't adding up here. Somebody with an inside connection is orchestrating this one.

    • You be lucky if there isn't a nest in the seat, and pee all over the carpet....
    • If one were measuring the debt in constant dollars instead of nominal dollars, 5% inflation reduces it by 5% of the $20 Trillion.  That is a trillion dollars.    Is that hard to understand?   Debt is only significant in relation to GDP and ability to pay.   Consider a thought experiment.   You own a thousand dollar 30 year treasuries paying 3% which is the current going rate.   So the government owes you 30 dollars a year, and a thousand dollars in 2046.   If inflation were to increase to 5%, the value of your thousand dollars goes down by 50 dollars per year.   In 2046 you get 1000 dollars which is equivalent to $215 today.   Which is a bigger problem to pay, the $1000 that you are complaining about or the $215 that actually gets paid?      Inflation has its problems but it also fixes debt concerns.  
    • So the Pence thing wasn't at a local level?   That what you were saying?     And the difference between subsidizing out of state folks and in state folks is?  Johnson subsidized the california folks coming to new mexico for a few weeks, and pence is subsidizing, by a factor of 7 less, local people keeping their jobs.     Got any numbers as to how many jobs for how long created by the Johnson hand out to Hollywood? 
    • Some other small detail items before I get to the finished pics of the entire house.   Each bench has a built in UV jig glow light.  You never have to worry about finding your keychain light (or the dead battery they always seem to have) again!   The normal bench cushion back always seems to be falling down.   I had each cushion sewn with a tab, and then installed a grommet and a hook on the wall.       On the back side of each wheel well is a rod storage compartment for 4 rods, an ice scoop, a forceps, and a few small hooks for miscellaneous stuff.   I mentioned the under cabinet and under bunk lighting in another post, but here it is in action.   And another view of my charging cabinet, with rattle reel storage.   That's all for now.  Finished pics soon!
    • I've had others, but I am a Bushnell fan.
    • Version #1 of the lift bed was a marvelous failure.  Everything looked great while building and installing it.  It was probably the most precise piece I've ever built.  The trouble was multi dimensional binding, as was pointed out in an earlier post.     Version #2 works well.  The strut channel and trolley works great, and doesn't allow any binding. You still want to lift or lower evenly, but it is really forgiving.     This is set up with 4 locking positions.  2 storage, and 2 sleeping.  I expect this to become the most frequently used bed in the house, rather than dropping the table down all the time.    The extra head room with this in its highest position is wonderful!  It isn't a direct replacement for pushing a button on the Happi Jac, but at about $1900 less, it'll work very well.  
    • This will be a bit long winded, but by far the most frequent question I get is how to wire these.  I'll try to detail as best I can.     Starting from the outside of the house I have a regular 30amp RV plug, similar to this:   From this plug I have a heavy duty 10/2 wire running to my converter, which is a Progressive Dynamics PD4045.  The nitty gritty details can be found with a search, but to summarize, it powers all your AC components, and converts AC to DC power, and charges any batteries.     My only AC components are outlets, the heating element for the electric part of my water heater, and a future expansion for a roof mount air conditioner.  Everything else is DC, and I don't use inverters (which would be used to convert 12v battery power to AC).  My reasoning is that the inverters are generally inefficient, and I have a Yamaha generator that will run over 14 hours on a gallon of gas.  That equates to about $6 per weekend with the amount I use it.             AC wires from the power panel include 10/2 to both the future air conditioner, and the water heater.  All outlets are 12/2.   I also have 10 gauge wire running from the panel to my (2) 6 volt GC2 (Sam's Club) golf cart batteries.  These are connected in series with a very heavy duty 0 gauge cable to make 12 volts.     The DC side is a bit more complicated to explain.  I have it set up in 2 categories.  (1) would be frequently used or higher draw components powered directly by the converter, each on their own fuse in the power panel.  This includes furnace, interior lights, exterior lights, ceiling fan, hydronic pump, sink pump, water heater ignition, stereo, and hole lights.  These all have a + wire from the converter to wherever the switch is located, and then continuing on from the switch to wherever the main power wire is for each component (more on this later).           Behind the converter I have a simple metal grounding bar to make all the - connections, and I have one main - wire running back to the batteries, and also grounded to the frame.         Category (2) are less frequently used, or very low power draw, or items with their own switch.  I have classified these as "always on".  This includes my two front exterior lights (so I can flip them on from the outside of the house), tv antenna, roof vents, rear bunk overhead lights, under cabinet lighting, range hood, etc.  These are all powered from the converter on a single fuse (20 amp).   So that brings me to the bathroom wall.  Knowing that the connections are by far the most likely failure point, I want to minimize the number of hidden connections buried by the spray foam.  Each light or fixture has its own separate wire to either the power panel, or my connection point in the wall.  This was taken before I got everything tidied up for spray foam, but you can see the plywood panel in the bathroom wall.         The other side of it now looks like this:    All the wires are brought down from the ceiling through the bathroom wall, with the connections made here.  You can see each has a + and - terminal bar, and then there is one other main grounding bar at the bottom, with a heavy 10 gauge - wire that runs back to the batteries and is also grounded to the frame.   So that's wiring in a nutshell!        
    • Looks like the rust belt should of went with a better rustproofing package.........     Donald Trump may have positioned himself as the champion of American workers but Republicans on the Hill are already embracing his “do as I say, not as I do” modus operandi. Under the backing of Paul Ryan, the GOP leadership stripped a provision from a water bill Monday that would have required American-made iron and steel products to be used in infrastructure projects in Flint and elsewhere funded by the Safe Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF). Democratic Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown blasted Republicans, who removed the “Buy America” provision (which passed the Senate with strong bipartisan support) while the House and Senate were reconciling the bills. In other words, GOP leadership scrapped it behind closed doors. “By stripping meaningful Buy America rules from the water infrastructure bill, Washington leadership is choosing China and Russia over Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin,” said Brown. “This was the first major test of whether Washington establishment Republicans would live up to President-elect Trump’s promises to put American products and American workers first – they failed, and American iron and steel workers will pay the price.” Now, Brown is teaming up with Democratic Sens. Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin and Bob Casey of Pennsylvania to insert the provision back in the bill. They want to reattach the provision to a nearly $12 billion Water Resource Development Act (WRDA), which authorizes dozens of infrastructure projects around the country and is on track to pass the House this week. “I’m not giving up on this fight,” Baldwin said in a telephone interview Tuesday. “Why would we pass a bill that only benefits Russian and Chinese steel corporations when we could be providing certainty to American manufacturers of steel and iron?” That sentiment was shared by some steel worker groups earlier this week: “From our end it’s a little baffling,” said Roy Houseman, a legislative representative for the United Steelworkers. “It’s been a program that’s been really successful, and it has bipartisan support. We’re just very confused by the Speaker, who’s not listening to the rest of his caucus.” In essence, “Buy America” sounds as nice to Republicans as it did to Trump, but in practice they would rather preserve the "Buy Chinese" option that Trump uses to build his skyscrapers.
    • If there are any twins fans left, I wonder if these new young bucks running the club have asked mauer if he would lift his no trade clause?  I think we know the answer.  I find it interesting to watch these winter meetings trades etc but we are never involved.  It seems like we are missing something as fans.
