The father has no rights whatsoever prior to the baby being born - so if he is here illegally you can report him in the hope that he will be deported before the baby is born.
Once the baby is here then the child has a right to contact with both parents - but you can insist that such contacts take place is a safe environment such as a Contact Centre.
To have any chance of using the child as a reason to stay he would have to show ongoing commitment - unlikely as he will hate going to a Contact Centre.
You do not have to have any further contact with him at this stage if you do not wish to do so
The Police will not be interested and he cannot remove the child from your care when it is born provided you do not put his name on the birth certificate.
Please ask if you need further details
Not daft at all - and no you do not
If he is deported then no contact can take place.
If he is here illegally then yes it will be a difficult choice for him wont it
Good luck I hope all goes well
