Brit jobless dad-of-10 to have 4 more, get engaged for 3rd time in 3 months

By Abdul Nisar

London, Nov 29 (ANI): Britain's infamous father-of-ten is now having another four children, and getting engaged for the third time in three months.

Keith Macdonald, who pays just 5 pounds a week to support his offspring - will cost taxpayers more than 2 million pounds by the time all his kids reach 18, reports the Daily Mail.

He has got two new girlfriends pregnant, is having another baby with an ex and a fourth woman who was already known to be having his child has discovered that she is having twins.

The 25-year-old has admitted he has eight youngsters - and he now has another six on the way. However, one of his former lovers has claimed he already has 11 children - so when the next eight are born he will have 19 in total.

He is now engaged to marry 32-year-old unemployed Amy Ward, from Chester-le-Street, Tyne and Wear, and she is expecting his child.

Unemployed Emma Kelly, 18, and 21-year-old ex-girlfriend Clare Bryant - have also both recently been made pregnant by the feckless father, it emerged today.

And another one of his expectant partners - 24-year-old Danielle Little - has just found out that she is expecting his twins.

It remained unclear when Macdonald, who has been in and out of prison, will tie the knot with his expectant fiancee Ward. He was also engaged to unemployed Danielle Little, from Sunderland, in September.

He had promised to marry 19-year-old beautician Sarah Armstrong from Chester-le-Street in the same month when he discovered she was pregnant.

The father claims 68.95 pounds per week in disability benefits because he has a bad back and 44 pounds per week in income support.

He has previously said it was 'not his fault' he had fathered so many children.

"I use condoms, but they always seem to split," Macdonald said.

Jill Kirby, director of the Centre for Policy Studies, said the benefits system encouraged feckless parenting.

"The case of Macdonald is an extreme example but it also reflects the behaviour of other men whose lives follow a similar pattern," she said. (ANI)
