"God says go forth and multiply" - Man with 40 children from 20 different women

Britain's most feckless father has had 40 children by 20 different women, boasting: 'God says go forth and multiply - I'll never stop'.

Mike Holpin, 56, from Monmouthshire, says he can only remember half their names and would not recognise some if he passed them in the street.

The recovering alcoholic claims he tries to keep track of all his children – aged between three and 37 – by having their names tattooed across his back.
He admits he would not recognise many in the street and 16 were taken into care by social services because of his 'drinking and womanising'.
Mr Holpin, who has previously admitted getting £27,000-a-year in benefits, says he wants even more children because he 'can't live without them'.
He said: 'In the Bible, God says go forth and multiply. I'm doing what God wants. I'm only 56. I'll never stop [having children]. Never stop.
'I'm as fertile as sin. I don't believe in contraception and I love sex.
'I've got so much love in me for my kids, it's spilling over. I need them more than they need me to be honest. I can't be without them.' 
Twenty-two of his 40 offspring carry his surname and there are 'probably a few more' out there he does not even know exist.


  1. Nonsense and ingredient; he should keep multiplying till he fills the whole earth with his offspring.

  2. This is poverty mentality
