‘Fix My Life’ finale: Father of 34 kids on being a grandfather for third time
The season finale of Oprah Winfrey Network’s highly acclaimed series Iyanla: Fix My Life airs Saturday night.
Joined by mothers, fathers and children in crisis, Iyanla concludes a highly rated multi-part studio dialogue about men having children without accepting responsibility, a national discussion sparked by the controversial multi-part “mega fix” featuring Atlanta resident Jay Williams, who fathered 34 kids with 17 women.
Iyanla met four of Jay’s adult children, including 24-year-old Jay Wes.
Now, Jay Wes joins his father to share some big 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 responds.
Last week, Jay joined Iyanla in-studio for a no-holds-barred, face-to-face discussion. For the season finale and last part of a follow-up talk with Jay, Iyanla one last discussion about a national “epidemic” of men not living up to their responsibilities as fathers and its effects.
Tune in for the Fix My Life season finale Saturday at 9/8c on OWN.
