Tennessee man paying child support for 21 kids

KNOXVILLE, TN (CNN) - A Tennessee man was in court because he has to pay child support for  21 kids.

Desmond Hatchett, 29, only makes minimum wage. The 21 kids are with 11 different women.

"I'm done," Hatchett said. "Hopefully I'm done. I didn't intend to have this many. It just happened."

The state of Tennessee can only take 50 percent of Hatchett's monthly pay, so divided up, the 11 mothers are only receiving an average of $1.98 per month. The Tennessee taxpayers are paying the rest.
