Now that he’s happily married, Colton Underwood is ready to be a father. But he’s found that it’s not as simple or as easy as he thought it would be.

The issues began from the very first visit to the fertility clinic. “I got my sperm results back, and I had four sperm. Three of them were dead. One was barely moving in my sample. It was one of those things where [I was] considered technically infertile,” he confessed to Parents magazine.

The reality star admitted feeling “shame” over the poor test results. However, the couple isn’t giving up on their dream to start a family.
