NGO Defence for Children says the results confirm suspicions Jan Karbaat used his own sperm at his clinic near Rotterdam. The doctor inseminated his patients with his sperm instead of using or thatthe chosen donor.
At the time, judges ruled that DNA tests could be carried out, but said the results had to be sealed pending the outcome of further court cases, Dutch media reported.
Jan Karbaat, who died in 2017, has always been suspected of using his own semen at his now closed Rotterdam fertility clinic without the knowledge of the women.
Results released on Friday proved that Mr Karbaat was the father of the 49 children, said the group Defence for Children which had supported the case.
Karbaat, who described himself as a "pioneer in the field of fertilisation", admitted before his death that he had used his own sperm to father about 60 children.
The Karbaat family's lawyers argued that their clients' right to privacy had to be respected.
"After years of uncertainty, the plaintiffs are finally closing a period and they can start processing the fact that they are one of the many descendants of Karbaat".
One of the children, Joey, spent the past 11 years searching for answers and told Dutch broadcaster NOS he was "glad to finally have clarity".
"I don't get the feeling that he cheated my mother", he told the NRC paper.

"Sperm belonging to the late doctor was also distributed to other clinics", Dutch news agency ANP quoted the organisation as saying. "She really wanted a child and could not have one with my parental father".
