WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - Mykal Coles has fathered 26 children with five different women. He says he is currently married to two of those women. It is definitely an unconventional arrangement - but it works for everyone involved, according to Mykal.
"It works generally because we're family oriented. We believe in big family. We have a big family. We believe in closeness and working together with each other to raise these children," Mykal said. "It's like a village, you know, even with the ex and the other mothers we all take part in raising these children."
Alicia and Jasmine, Mykal's two wives, say their family is similar to the reality show, Sister Wives, but that they live in separate houses. They each have eight of Mykal's children each. Mykal says is legally married to Alicia and has a common law marriage to Jasmine.
Mykal, who says he is an actor, music producer and private police captain, is at each home every day. He says that he met Alicia over 20 years ago and met Jasmine about 9 years ago. The family says they do not force their beliefs on their children.
Mykal says he has no plan for more wives.
