'I'll Never Stop': 56-Year-Old Man Fathered 40 Children With 20 Different Women


A recovering alcoholic from the U.K. revealed that he has fathered at least 40 children from 20 different women, and is planning to have more.

Mike Halpin, who lives Monmouthsire, Wales, said he knows for certain that he fathered 22 children with his name, and 18 without, and believes that there are more out there he’s unaware of. The man reportedly does not believe in contraception, “loves sex,” and procreates because he is simply carrying out “God’s wishes.”

Halpin’s baby-making streak reportedly began when he was in his late teens, after getting a job at a fairground. His first sexual experience was at the age of 9.

“Boys working on rides like that, they're only there for one reason and that's to pull women,” he said. “Good looking boys are better but funny boys are spectacular. You have to do some manoeuvring [sic] but me, I thought, I just want sex. I'd pat them on the rump and if they say f*** off then they're not really up for it. If they say yes, then great.”

Halpins admitted that despite having countless sexual encounters, he only had six serious relationships. All of them ended because of his alcohol dependency. His children also suffered greatly from his addiction, with all of them being placed in outside care.

“Due to my drinking and my womanizing, most of my kids have gone through the care system,” he said. “It makes me feel like s*** because they've suffered. They [social services] took them from me because I'm an alcoholic. I'm still an alcoholic - I just don't practise [sic] it.”

Now that he is in recovery, Halpin hopes to reunite with his children and be the father that they never had.

“When they went into care, I made a promise that no matter how long it took, I will get my kids home,” he said. “I miss all the fun we used to have so I guess getting them back, my life will be set. My life will be perfect."

“I've got so much love in me for my kids, it's spilling over,” he added. “I need them more than they need me to be honest. I can't be without them. I can't make up for what I've done. All I can do is be there for them now. I'll keep fighting.”

Halpin, who is now engaged to a woman named Diane, hopes to add to his family despite already having a considerable number of children. Though he’s committed to Diane, he still reminisces about his womanizing past.

“There's nothing nicer than a single fellow with a baby," he said. "Sex? It's sex is all it is. You could look like the back of a bus but sex is sex. You do doggy style if she's ugly.

“I'm only 56,” he added. “I'll never stop [having children]. Never stop. In the Bible, God says go forth and multiply. I'm doing what God wants.”
