A New York math professor has admitted that he is the proud father of TWENTY-TWO CHILDREN.
Many of Ari Nagel’s children were conceived in restrooms at Target or Starbucks. But you won’t find the 40-year-old hooking up with woman in the stalls.
The single professional lends his services to lesbian couples who patiently wait outside the bathroom – for a cup of his sperm.
40-year-old Ari Nagel has been donating his sperm to women for nearly a decade. He’s now got nearly enough children to fill an entire baseball team, and has a whopping 18 baby mama’s.
The Kingsborough Community College professor’s first donated his sperm eight years ago at a fertility clinic, when his single friend in her late 30s wanted to become a mother.
Women who are desperate for a surrogate father can find Ari Nagel via Craigslist or “Known Donor Registry,” a free website connecting couples to donors who do not want to remain anonymous.
This option is a lot more much cheaper for hopeful mothers than a sperm bank, where costs can range anywhere from $300 to $4,000, according to the American Pregnancy Association.
Nagel offers his sperm up for free.
Sometimes he and the mother-to-be will conceive the old-fashioned, with lesbian couples sometimes holding their partner’s hand in bed for moral support.
But more often than not Nagel’s sperm is produced thanks to a couple minutes of “alone time” with his cell phone.
Nagel usually delivers his sperm into a menstrual cup. An ovulating woman can then insert this cup in her cervix for up to 12 hours.
But the ladies don’t just flock to Nagel because of his free services or high sperm count.’He’s a lot of fun to be around,’ Tiffany Harrison, 41, told the New York Post. ‘He loves people, he’s outgoing, and he’s gorgeous.’
Tiffany Harrison and her wife Yvonne have a toddler daughter with Ari Nagel.
Ari sees her regularly and turns up at their home for babysitting and birthdays.
Nagel says that he loves that his “side hobby” allows him to have a huge family without all the responsibility.
Ari Nagel told The Washington Post: “Some children I’ll see every week, but there are others I’ve never even met. I feel like I’m getting all the joy, but also getting a good night’s rest.
But some mothers haven’t been happy with Nagel’s hands-off approach and have taken him to court.
The first five women that Nagel provided his services to successfully sued him for child support, although he claims they promised in advance they would never sue.
‘I don’t know what’s more surprising: that five sued or 17 didn’t,’ Nagel said. ‘They were all well aware there was no financial obligation on my part.’
After revelations about the prolific sperm donor came to light, Ari Nagel’s wife of 10 years and the mother of his three children, Roxanne, is reportedly ‘livid,’ according to the New York Post.
‘She’s been yelling at me a lot,’ the Kingsborough Community College professor told the paper.
But despite losing half of his paycheck to his growing brood, Nagel is still talking to more women looking to have children.
He recently shared to his Twitter page pictures of women he’s impregnated and a brand new baby.
Ari Nagel says he has no regrets when it comes to his huge family, who now scatter the entire globe.
‘I just love seeing how happy the moms and kids are. That’s why I do this. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.’ he said.
