Meet America‘s biggest deadbeat dad.

A Tennessee man who has fathered a whopping 22 children by 14 different women has been pulled into court for unpaid child support.

Orlando Shaw, 33, of Nashville, told local News Channel 5 he’d lost count of how many kids he had by how many mothers – he mused he’d fathered “roughly” 18 kids with 17 women – but there was no way he’d ever be able to support them.

“To be honest with you, don’t nothing come to a dreamer … I go everywhere looking for a job, where am I going to get one with my lengthy record?” Shaw told the station, referring to a criminal record that has made it hard for him to land work.

“I’m just hoping one day I’ll get lucky and might scratch off the numbers or something. I play the hell out of the Tennessee lottery,” he said.

“They’re my kids, I love my kids and I could (not) care less what anybody else thinks about it,” he added.

With the help of the state’s child support services, Shaw’s exes sued him for years of unpaid child support, the station reported.

So far, the state has been covering his tab, amounting to more than $7,000 a month to feed and clothe his massive brood.

Child Support Court Magistrate Scott Rosenberg told News 5, “How do we apply our child support guidelines to this many children in this many households?”

News 5 said Shaw would probably go to jail if he couldn’t pay.

Shaw said he didn’t regret having so many children, but was thinking about getting “fixed,” or having a vasectomy.

“I was just young and ambitious and I loved women. You can’t knock no man for loving women,” he said.

“What I didn’t know, when I turned 33, everything I that did from 16 to 18 is biting me now.”
