A man who either really likes babies or has nefarious intent with babies is being investigated after nine babies were found living in his condo -- each with a nanny. All of the babies, plus seven others, had been fathered by him with surrogates -- and he reportedly has expressed a desire to have hundreds more babies.
Police raided the man's condo in Bangkok and found the nine babies, each with a nanny. They lived in a few unfurnished rooms fitted with bottles, cribs, and other baby needs. It's unclear where the other seven babies were before the raid.
The man used fertility clinics to hire the surrogates, and the head of one clinic says she warned police about him right after the first baby was born, since he immediately wanted more babies. Mariam Kukunashvili, founder of the New Life clinic, told The Associated Press:
As soon as they got pregnant, he requested more. He said he wanted 10 to 15 babies a year, and that he wanted to continue the baby-making process until he's dead.
Actually, he didn't want to stop there. Reportedly, he'd even frozen his sperm so more could be made after he died!
The man, through his lawyer, claimed he just wanted a big family and has the means to take care of them all. Wow. I don't even think Octomom is this baby-obsessed.
However, authorities suspect that he might be having the babies for darker reasons, such as child trafficking. The head of the clinic also said he said something about wanting to run for office and using his children to vote for him.
Either way, the guy sounds out of his mind.
His lawyer argues that the man had birth certificates for all the babies and had put assets in their names. Why, he argues, would he do all that if he was going to sell them?

Who the hell knows, but there is no way you can properly care for hundreds of babies. Not even Bill Gates should do it! Being a dad is about more than having the money to pay for the essentials.
Guy sounds like he has an ego that has run amok.
Why do you think he's doing this?
