It's times like this when the brain ponders the existence of a God.

Some wee mite is going to have Michael Lohan and the woman who has a very strange barring order against him - Kate Major - as parents.

The reality TV mess - who (as you may already be aware) has daughters Lindsay and Ali and sons Cody and Michael with former wife Dina - will welcome a new child with on/off girlfriend Kate sometime in the New Year.

While Kate is said to be in her first trimester, it is believed conception occurred during the time she had a restraining order against Michael, 52, meaning it was illegal for them to spend any time together. At the moment, it is unclear if any charges will be pressed for the breach of the order.

According to TMZ, Michael has not yet told his children, including troubled actress Lindsay, that they can expect a new addition to their family. SURPRISE.

By way of a recap - Kate was granted a restraining order against Michael last year following months of arguments between the couple, many of which turned violent with each accusing the other of assault.
However, in April Michael claimed Kate was trying to get pregnant by him.

He said: "I was in the hospital with kidney stones and Kate just barged in! She's been taking ovulation tests trying to get pregnant from me. She hates the fact that I'm doing so well, that I am getting close to Dina and the kids who hate her, and can't stand the fact that my mum and sister came down to visit me and Kate was unwanted."

Kate, meanwhile, has previously called Michael a "sick, old man", adding "he is a liar and because I want nothing to do with him, he has been stalking me and I finally HAD to take action again. I have emails, pictures and witnesses to disprove all of his desperate and pathetic claims, plus a permanent order of protection which he constantly violates."

Best of luck, little one.
