29 kids?! Meet Ari Nagel, the US sperm donor on a mission to impregnate women
American maths professor turned sperm donor, Ari Nagel has risen to fame for spreading his seed across America, helping women to conceive.
He's been dubbed 'The Sperminator' and has fathered 29 children with 24 women so far.
His oldest child is 14-years-old and his youngest offspring are still in the womb.
The professor has made headlines in the past for donating sperm in public bathrooms.
He's helped women conceive in a variety of ways, including trips to fertility clinics, sending sperm in the mail, DIY artificial insemination and "the old-fashioned way".
The 42-year-old has helped older women, straight couples and lesbian couples to conceive.
He explains that many women are grateful to him, and that some want him to play an active role in their families.
Nagel offers his sperm for free and says he gets a lot of joy from helping people who have struggled to have children.
He says he will help whoever asks for a sample of his sperm, whether it's in a cup or by way of "a little action".
