Speaking to the Sunday Mirror he said his decision had nothing to do with “bigotry” or “discrimination” – he just wanted children conceived from his sperm to have a mother and father.
He eventually settled on a five-figure payout from the CARE Fertility Clinic that contacted him six years later to say “mistakes may have been made”.
He said: “It’s not about discrimination, it’s not about bigotry.
“I accept some people will find it uncomfortable but I wanted any children born from my sperm to have a mother and a father.
“I accept what I said will be divisive, but these children are what matters the most. A lot of people will strongly agree with me, a lot will strongly disagree, but my concern is for the kids.
“I didn’t want them being questioned. I didn’t want people making comments like ‘Where’s your dad?’ or ‘Why do you have two mums?’
“It takes a man and a woman to create a child. You can’t argue with millions of years of biology.”
