Sperminator : ‘Don’t focus on me,’ says a sperminator on his way to fathering 100 children.
Ari Nagel, a New York college professor, has fathered over 80 children and has more on the way.
The 44-year-old teacher has already made national news for his repeated sperm donations, earning him the moniker “The Sperminator” from national tabloids.
In a new interview with Dr. Mehmet Oz, he will give an update on his life.
Oz and his wife briefly discuss the 77 children he has fathered so far in a video Oz posted to Twitter on Tuesday.
“I have 77 children,” Nagel says in the clip, “but when you look at the three women we just saw on the television, they don’t have 77 children.”
“It’s all about whether they’ll have their first or second child for them. So it’s not so much about focusing on myself; it’s more about focusing on them, who simply want to have a family.”
THE ‘SPERMINATOR,’ WHO HAS FATHERED 52 CHILDREN, HAS HIS OWN WEB SERIES
However, in an early March interview with “Claire Byrne Live,” Nagel claimed to have fathered 78 children.
At the time of the interview, Nagel claimed that 13 women were expecting children created with his sperm.
Most of the mothers to whom he has provided sperm live in the United States or overseas and have children through artificial insemination.
“Around a dozen” of Nagel’s children were “conceived the old fashioned way,” he said British journalist Claire Byrne, but it was considerably earlier in his donating journey.

According to various publications and interviews he has given to news outlets over the years, the sperm donations Nagel has made have all been free of charge.
Nagel told Australia’s “The Morning Show” on March 10 claimed his family had expanded to 80 children, with another 12 on the way.
When questioned if he had a vetting process for the ladies who request sperm donation, Nagel responded he has “no vetting process” and “[tries] to help whoever asks.”

According to Fox News, Nagel’s family has grown even bigger in the last two months.
He also explained the discrepancy in his family size in a clip from “The Dr. Oz Show.”
“I have 15 pregnant women in Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Tennessee, and Texas, plus one in Europe,” Nagel stated. “Dr. Oz taped a few weeks ago that I have 84 children.”
While most people would consider Nagel’s fathering to be excessive, he is not the actual record holder.
According to The Guardian, a guy named Louis from the Netherlands has fathered 200 children through sperm donation.
Meanwhile, according to the BBC, an Englishman named Simon Watson has fathered 800 children.
Throughout history, documents and stories suggest that a number of princes and scientists, including King Sobhuza II of Swaziland (1899 to 1982), King Augustus II of Poland (1670 to 1733), and Austrian biologist Bertold Wiesner, fathered hundreds of children (1901 to 1972).
