Nashville's Orlando Shaw, only 33 years old but already the father of 22 children by 14 different women, costs the state more than $7,000 each month to support his kids, News Channel 5 reports.

Those mothers — through Child Support Services — took Shaw to court for tens of thousands of dollars in unpaid child support over the years:

"How do we apply our child support guidelines to this many children in this many households," said magistrate Scott Rosenberg.

Rosenburg said Shaw would have to take three or four full-time jobs to even come close to paying the child support he owes. Shaw said his prior criminal history makes it hard for him to find a job.

Shaw said he's proud of all his children.

"I love my kids and I can care less about what anyone thinks about it," said Shaw.  He said by having all these children it helps his Shaw family legacy live on. "I'll be sure we'll be here for years and years to come."

In an interview outside the Metro Courthouse in Nashville, Shaw offered up several gems, including estimating he has "roughly" 18 children and saying, "I play the hell out of the Tennessee lottery."

When asked how he can be a father figure to so many different kids, he replied, "It's called cell phones."

Also, the reporter inquired whether contraception was ever an option for him.

"I was young, ambitious," he said, laughing. "I was just young and ambitious, and I loved women. Hey, you can't knock no man for loving women."
