“I feel like I do owe the women that are currently in my life, I owe them as much energy, time, and effort as I possibly [can] — especially my kids. Every time I close my eyes I see my kids.”

“Any woman that I know that I have unprotected sex with, there’s the potential to have a child,” he explained, saying that he doesn’t have unprotected sex with everyone as he’s “the biggest germ freak in the world.”

“If I’ve gotten to that point where I say, ‘I can take off this condom,’ I’m gonna say, ‘She could be the mother of my child,'” he continued.

“Every woman that I have a child with, there is definitely a conversation about, ‘Wow, how amazing would this be?”’
“I feel like every woman I have a child with are amazing mothers, and there was a thought process going into like, ‘Man, she would be an amazing mother, she’s desired children, I can’t wait to see what type of mother she would be.'”
