As reported earlier, Michael Lohan impregnated Kate Major while she still had an active restraining order against him. This is the woman whom he dated while trying to get clean for press and money on Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew. His on-off girlfriend, Major, would arrive at the clinic unannounced, often, and cause trouble. Resulting in the police being called on the couple several times.
In addition to the first baby bump photos, Major sold an exclusive to SplashNewsOnline yesterday in which she’s at the beach reading a bridal magazine because she probably thinks Lohan (who’s reportedly beat her and leaked intimate photos of her) will marry her now.
A source tells TheHuffingtonPost.com about Lohan and Major’s hopes for the baby: “It is for sure his child and they are back together. They are both very excited about the news and can’t wait for the arrival of the baby. Michael is already picking out names and hopes they have a daughter as beautiful and talented as Lindsay. This is a second chance for him to be the parent he always wanted to be.”
If that’s Lohan’s hope, in addition to sons Michael Jr. and Cody, the 52-year-old already has three daughters to exploit: Aliana Lohan, 18, Lindsay Lohan, 26, and Ashley Horn (a.k.a. Ashley Horne, Ashley Kaufmann, or Ashley Lohan) who is about 17-years-old now (13-years-old in 2008 when her mother first went public as Michael Lohan’s alleged former mistress with whom he cheated on Dina Lohan).
Ashley Horn, of whom there are photos from 2008 below, is the daughter of Kristi Horn who claims to have met Michael Lohan at dinner with a mutual friend in the 1980s. Years later, the two met up again in 1994 and began an extramarital affair. “It went on for about 4 weeks,” she says. “He told me he was separated from Dina. He told me about Lindsay’s Jell-O commercial. He took me to meet his parents. We were in love.” In love, meeting the parents, after a month, then having a baby together? Sure, okay then.
At first, Michael Lohan offered a statement to OK! Magazine admitting paternity: “Years later [the woman] contacted me, convincing me that I was the only person she was with and that she had my child.” He told Chelsea Handler, his illegitimate daughter is no secret and he’d known about her since his prison stay in 2007. He admitted the girl “is beginning to look a lot like Lindsay, with a mix of [younger brother] cody, believe it or not.” In 2007, while he was still in Collins Correctional Facility, he sent the child a photograph of himself which he signed “Love Daddy.” He soon turned on the girl, however, telling the media he wanted a paternity test: “It was important for me to know the truth, so I took the test. However, I have some serious doubts after investigating Kristi’s background… If the test is found to be negative, she’s gonna be sued for libel and defamation.”
Former mistress Kristi Horn ran to OK! Magazine in July 2008 to sell her story. Asked why run to the tabloids, she told OK! “Many times I offered to do this privately so the other Lohan kids wouldn’t be hurt. But Michael would not live up to his obligations.” Adding, “It’s time for Michael to take responsibility.”
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, though, the child said she didn’t want to know her father, only her “siblings,” saying “I just really don’t want anything to do with him right now.”
Lindsay Lohan admitted to fans in a December 2008 MySpace blog that her father had a kid out of wedlock: “my father just let my family and i know, amongst others that he had another child after my little sister Aliana, or maybe he had it before Aliana?? either way, he cheated on my mother and that really sucks… MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!”
In September 2010, Life & Style featured the teenager on the cover under the name “Ashley Horne.” Kristi Horn and Michael Lohan told Life & Style he never took the paternity test, although he said “I’d be glad to take a DNA test!”
