A Tennesse man with 30 children asked the state for child-support help.

Desmond Hatchett, who fathered 30 children, appeared in court in May reportedly asked the court to give him a break on his payments, claiming that he’s struggling to make ends meet with his minimum-wage job. Currently, the state requires him to divide 50 percent of his earnings among the 11 women, some of whom receive as little as $1.49 a month, WREG reports.

Hatchett, 33, has 30 kids with 11 different women. His youngest child is a toddler while his oldest is 14. Hatchett claims the number of got out of hand because he had four kids in the same year, twice. In 2009, he claimed he was done having kids with 21. But somehow he ended up have nine more.

The state cannot order Hatchett to stop making babies.
