Sperm donor: 33-year-old Ben Seisler confessed to his fiancée that he had 70 children as part of a new reality show
A lawyer who donated sperm to pay his way through college has learned that he has fathered an astonishing 70 children.
More than 15 of those have already attempted to contact 33-year-old Ben Seisler.
The donor confessed to his fiancée as part of a new reality show, Sperm Donor, that aired on the Style Network on Tuesday.
Seisler donated sperm for three years while attending law school at George Mason, Virginia. He earned around $150 per donation.
He originally planned to remain anonymous but later joined an online registry called the Donor Sibling Registry that connects offspring and siblings to each other and their donors, Boston Globe reported.
On hearing the news his fiancée said she was 'having trouble wrapping my head around the fact that you have 50,60 or 70 biological offspring.'
She said: 'I guess I didn't realise how many there were.
'I kind of deem that as selfish in a way. Did you think of the consequences that would come of it?'
During the reality show Seisler also comes face to face with two of his biological children, a boy and a girl.
The Boston lawyer said there is no 'road map' for the situation he is in now.
'It was kind of wild,' he said after meeting the children. 'On the one hand, these kids are biologically my kids. On the other hand they are not my kids. I didn't raise them. I have no control over how they are raised.'
