For weeks, Iyanla has supported the healing of Jay, a 44-year-old biological father of 34 children with 17 different women. During Part 2 of her mega-fix, she met four of Jay's adult children, including 24-year-old Jay Wes.

Now, Jay Wes joins his father at Harpo Studios to share some news with Iyanla: He and his girlfriend are expecting their first child. "Are you, at 24, at the place in your heart, mind, life, soul, ready to be committed to the evolution and the raising of another life on this planet?" Iyanla asks Jay Wes.

"I am. Definitely," he says.

Watch the above video to find out how Jay feels about becoming a grandfather for the third time. Plus, youth advocate Jeff Johnson challenges Jay Wes to prepare for the birth of his daughter by thinking about what she'll need the most from him.
