Travis Henry Explains How He Knocked Up All Those Women

Illustration for article titled Travis Henry Explains How He Knocked Up All Those Women

It's no secret that Travis Henry was a very reproductive running back throughout his football career. The New York Times finds out why.


Amazingly, there's no rational explanation as to why Henry, the former Bills/Broncos/Titans running back, had all of those kids. Out of his nine children, he admits only one was planned. ONE. By the time he left the University of Tennessee for the NFL draft in 2001 , Henry already had three children with three different mothers. Even after he signed his contract with the Buffalo Bills, he maintained his prodigious barebacking, fertilizing most of North America's female population during that time period. Now, with the legal problems stemming from drug charges, his kids' insistence on eating and wearing clothes, and no NFL team left to pay him, Henry is completely broke. Henry still seems unconvinced that his baby-making problems are completely his fault. He says that some of the women lied about being birth-controled to trap him.

"I did use protection at first. Then they'd be saying they'd be on the pill. I was an idiot to trust them. Second or third time with them, I didn't use it. Then, boom!"


...Goes the fallopian tube.

Also of note: Henry's currently engaged, but he says that both he and his fiancée don't want any children. So, most likely, she'll be pregnant as soon the judge lets him have some of his money back.
