A man who is described as Britain’s most prolific sperm donor has claimed that he has fathered 13 children in the past 26 days alone.

Simon Watson, 45, a privately educated former athlete from Bedfordshire, took to Facebook recently to reveal that the nineteenth and twentieth set of twins had arrived, revealing: ’13 babies that I heard of were born and 16 more said they are pregnant in just 26 days of July-August!’.

The divorcee, who went on to describe his sperm as ‘baby venom’, first hit headlines in 2016 when he boasted of having fathered 800 offspring in 16 years from selling his sperm over Facebook for just £50 a pot. 

The professional sperm donor and former business manager hasn’t met most of the babies born as a result of his donations, but raises three children from two previous marriages following his divorces –  Thomas, 23, and Stefan, 21, and Lily, 14.

Sharing the news to the Facebook page Sperm Donors UK last week, he said : ‘The 19th & 20th Sets of Twins have arrived yippeeee!!! Plus over 50 shades of luck since about Easter!

’13 babies that I heard of were born and 16 more said they are pregnant in just 26 days of July-August.

‘Well done those Mummies I’m proud of you all and you’ve really put an even more massive smile on my face! Maybe it should be called Baby Venom instead of Magic Potion!

‘2 Mums are from Wales, 3 from Scotland, ones in Czech Republic, a Bulgarian and one who is of Caribbean origin.

‘If you have a spare womb I’ll do my utmost to get a little someone to move in there! Sorry if I didn’t put your photo on here I didn’t start saving most of these pics until the summer. (sic)’.

Simon took to Facebook recently to reveal that the nineteenth and twentieth set of twins had arrived, revealing: '13 babies that I heard of were born and 16 more said they are pregnant in just 26 days of July-August!'

Simon’s website describes his services as ‘helping women worldwide’, with the father claiming that his sperm count is around 420million.

He adds: ‘My Blood type is ‘A Positive, eyes are blue, Blonde natural hair and height 5′ 11′ (1.81m)’. 

Simon describes himself as ‘doing his upmost to be available’, and offers to make trips to hotels near to interested parties.

He also offers to provide proof of regular STD health check ups, medical papers and his family tree.

Simon writes: ‘Should you wish me to travel to you, I charge 50p per mile round trip.

‘For the magic potion pot expenses I charge £50 and £25 for any others you may require in the same monthly cycle.’

Simon previously revealed in 2016 that he is always delighted to see his donor children if they, or their parents, seek a relationship and said he is particularly close to a nine-year-old donor son who lives with his lesbian mothers in Derby. 

After his divorce, the desire to make more children prompted him to enroll as a sperm donor at the NHS clinic at University College Hospital, London.

By then the law had changed, meaning that donors’ anonymity would not be protected for life — but Simon was not put off.

‘I always wanted any children I’d fathered to be able to find me if they chose to,’ he said at the time. None of the early donor children has yet contacted him, but he would welcome them if they did.

Under the laws of licensed clinics, Simon was only permitted to help ten families. So by 2000 his work with the NHS was done and his ‘freelance’ career began. 

While donation via licensed clinics is strictly regulated by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority in the UK, there is nothing to stop ‘freelancers’ such as Simon operating unchecked.

There is no limit to the number of children they can father, for example. Neither are they protected against financial claims from their donor children, the parents of whom may, if they wish, choose to reveal the identity of their donor father before they reach adulthood.

What is the law on sperm donation?

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority is the UK Government’s independent regulator overseeing fertility treatment and research. 

Sperm donors should normally be aged between 18 and 41-years-old.

A donor does not have any legal rights and responsibilities for children born from the donation, provided they donate through a licensed UK fertility clinic.

They will have no say over their upbringing and won’t be required to pay anything towards their care.

However, if the donation is not done at clinic licensed by the HFEA, it is possible that they could be considered the legal father of any children conceived from a donation.

If a donation results in the birth of a child or children, the donor can apply for information only on the number of children born, their gender, their year of birth.

If a donor donated after April 1 2005, a child born from the donation can find out certain details about them.

If they are aged 16, details they can be told include a physical description, where you were born, ethnicity, and marital status.

If they are aged 18, they can get the donors full name, date and town of birth, and a recent address. 

However, a child born by private donor may be denied the chance to find their biological father.
