Iyanla to a Father of 34 Children: Why Didn't You Get a Vasectomy?

Season 3 Episode 302
Aired on 09/06/2014 | CC tv-14
When Iyanla sits down with Jay, the biological father of 34 children, she asks him to hold as many baby dolls as he can to feel the weight of what he's created. With 14 dolls piled on his lap, Iyanla asks Jay whether he ever thought he had had enough children—or whether he ever considered a vasectomy. "No," he says. "I don't have a problem with what I created."

Then, when Jay says he's tired of holding the dolls, Iyanla hands them right back to him. "As a mom, I don't get not to take care of my children, no matter what I'm thinking or feeling," she says. "I didn't get to just put them down because it was inconvenient."

Watch Jay's reaction. Plus, find out how many children he says he would probably have if he hadn't used any protection at all.
