Yes, fans are very curious about Matteo Valles, who, according to his official bio "has helped create 114 children for all types of families." Well, we're thinking that should be enough to break the ice with Hannah B. and start a series of meaningful conversations. 

In any case, he's better looking and more interesting than Scott, who came on the show even though he had a girlfriend

So, who's Matteo Valles — and does he really have 114 kids?

Matteo is a 25-year-old Georgia Tech grad with a degree in mechanical engineering. Which comes in handy these days while he's trying to get his VR tech startup off the ground. From his Instagram account, it seems this tech geek also moonlights as a model. Sexy! However, that startup gig might not be all Matteo relies on for income.

Current jobs aside, Matteo admits to having been a sperm donor in the past, which can only have helped his bank account. After all, sperm donors can make $100-125 per donation, and since Matteo's been good for over 114 babies, he probably laughed his way right out of that sperm bank.

Matteo is "not ashamed" and is "proud of the people I was able to help."

Considering Matteo's name has been circulating while Bachelorette fans buzz with curiosity about his many seeds, the contestant took to Instagram just a few hours ago to clear the air. "I just wanted to take a minute and tell my story," he wrote alongside a two-part video.

"So, there's been a lot of news circulating about me recently and I just thought it might be important to, kind of, take a second and tell my piece on it. So it seems at this point everybody knows that I used to be a sperm donor and I think it's important just to note that it's not something I'm ashamed of."

"You know, I never expected it to help this many people," he continued in his video. "However, I am proud of the people I was able to help. I think that more people struggle with this problem than we maybe realize and for whatever the reasons are for those families turning to sperm donations, you know, I'm happy I helped them create that family they wanted."
