Britain's most feckless father is today expected to see the birth of his 16th child by 14 different women, with another one on the way in a matter of weeks.
Unemployed Jamie Cumming and his new girlfriend were expecting the baby to arrive on Friday, but the teenage mother-to-be was sent home from hospital the following day after doctors found she was having a ‘slow labour’.
Cumming, 34, from Dundee, has already fathered 15 children with 13 different mothers, and is expecting a further child with another woman in January.
His current lover is 19-year-old Chelsea, while another 19-year-old gave birth to Cumming’s 15th baby two weeks ago, and a third teen is expected to give birth to his 17th in the new year.
The serial dad from Dundee is unable to financially support his many children and most of the mothers are also on benefits.
Cumming’s mother Lorraine, who doesn’t speak to her son, said she was ashamed of him and he should do more to support his children.
She said: ‘He’s been unemployed for years and shows no sign of wanting to work.
'We don’t speak to each other, and, even though I love him as my child, I am bitterly disappointed with how he lives his life.
'It’s difficult to keep up with it all, but I do my best to see all the kids. He just doesn’t seem bothered, even though he thinks he’s “Father of the Year” because he lives with three of them. We’re expecting Chelsea to have the baby over the next 24 hours or so.’
Mrs Cumming was also scathing on her son’s liberal choice of partners. She added: ‘It’s sad he doesn’t see his eldest, Samantha, who I have looked after since she was born. The girls he is running around with just now are not much older than her – he just loves teenagers.
'I would say he is a sexual predator.’ Cumming was just 17 when Samantha was born in 1995, but once the baby arrived he moved his affections to new mum Kelly Dulley’s cousin.
The baby was left with Cumming’s parents to raise as their own, and Samantha, now 16, has seen her own mother only twice since. Between 1997 and 2002, Cumming then fathered another five children with five different mothers.
In 2004, he sired two girls and a boy who were all born within months of each other, and between December 2007 and August 2008 the former barman fathered three more offspring.
The only woman Cumming has had more than one child with is on-off girlfriend Alison – they have three children together. She gave birth to his 14th child in July last year, and he became a father for the 15th time two weeks ago when a teenager he had a brief fling with gave birth to a baby boy.
