As part of the healing process, Iyanla asks Jay, a man who has fathered 34 children with 17 different women, to write a letter of confession to the mothers of his kids. Jay's parents and his son Jay Wes sit beside him to support the healing.

"I apologize for not entering some of your lives as a whole man," Jay says. "I apologize for not honoring some of you properly as women and, especially, the mothers of my children."

Watch as Jay promises that, from now on, he'll be "stepping up to the plate" as a father. Plus, Chantau, the mother of four of Jay's children, shares her emotional breakthrough.
