A New York college professor donated his sperm to his 50th recipient, an 18-year-old woman from Harlem who lives in a homeless shelter.
According to the New York Post, Ari Nagel,43, has fathered 15 children since last year and is expecting his 50th child on July 12. Nagel said his unborn daughter’s mother, Kaienja Garrick,18, reached out to him last August and said she’s mature for her age.
“I never asked her age — I try to help whoever asks. I think Kai is more mature than I was at her age after everything she has been through.”
Garrick said she wanted a child since she was able to take care of her seven-year-old sister and tried to get pregnant a month after her 18th birthday last year.
“I knew if I could raise my little sister, I can raise my own baby. I’ve been taking care of her since she was born.”
She added that she and her girlfriend of three years, Dee Slobert, were looking for ways to find a cheaper alternative for a sperm donor. Garrick did some online research and found Nagel on Facebook.

They met at Manhattan Beach where Nagel gave her a sample on the spot and some of his children’s mothers showed up at Garrick’s baby shower last month with gifts, diapers, and money. Garrick says she does not plan to rely on Nagel for child support.
“If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be blessed to have a child. It’s hard to find people like that. Nothing’s free in this world. Although I struggle financially, I feel rich with joy and love and am so blessed to be a part of so many wonderful families.”
