This is a guy in big trouble who needs all the help he can get.  It also sounds like he is potentially dangerous to you and himself.  Do absolutely everything you can to get him into treatment and keep yourself safe.  Get maximum support for yourself to help you make better judgements in the future for yourself and the child.  This is very serious and will not fix itself.

P.S.Don't focus on if he is delusional or not--this is very serious either way.

i have tried to get him to seea psyc but he always makes excuses and wont do it. im leaving him, but im worried he will try and take the baby when it is born. he comes from alot of money, his mum has already taken him to a lawyer and apparently he said having delusional disorder wont affect wether he could get custody. so im just trying to get some evidence of his illegal activities before i go. right now i know he is with another girl while he is txting me how much he loves me. its sickening. i dont want him to get any custody of my baby, i really do believe he would be a danger to him, and at best an extreamly bad example.

Leaving him is a very good idea.  Cover yourself with as much evidence and legal help as you can.  Get things in writing, on tape, witnesses, not your word against his.  It is not true his being delusional won't affect custody.  Be ready for a street fight but it is something you have to do for yourself and the baby.

Good Luck.

It sounds like he is  big trouble for you and the baby.  The problem is that it is his baby too and it is likely to come down to what a judge thinks is best.  That is why I suggest maximum legal help and documenting his various problems with objective evidence not just your word against his.
