Dennis Beaudoin is married and has two kids, but he's ready to take on more. 8 more, to be precise.

Beaudoin is the ex-boyfriend Nadya Suleman (aka OctoMom). The pair dated in the 1990s for three years, although he admits he believes now she was married at the time. Beaudoin also claimed this morning in a Good Morning America interview that "she asked him to donate sperm and he wants to know if he is the father of her children," according to the Press-Telegram.

"She really wanted to have kids," Dennis Beaudoin said this morning on GMA. "She asked me to donate sperm. ...I thought it was kind of out of the ordinary, but I cared about her so much, and we were in love."

Suleman has said that the same sperm was used to fertilize her eggs for all of her pregnancies, which resulted in her bearing 14 children in total. This possible "OctoDad" believes at least the octuplets are his, but even if they are not, "he would like to help Suleman raise them. He said he doesn't believe Suleman can raise the children alone."
