A Wairarapa man has fathered a son with the 14-year-old daughter of the woman with whom he was trying to conceive a child.

The man pleaded guilty to having sexual connection with a young person. District Court judge Arthur Tompkins gave him a year's home detention with special conditions. Home detention is not at the house where the offending occurred and the man is to complete counselling.

The man, now 23, befriended the family in April 2011 when the victim was 11. He moved into the home two years later and began a relationship with the girl.

He was also in a sexual relationship with the girl's mother, and the couple were trying to conceive.

Although he and the girl were caught kissing and in bed together, it was not until after she was 14 and pregnant with his son that he was caught. Police obtained DNA to confirm paternity after he denied the child was his.

He then told police he and the girl were in love, and had also wanted to provide a surrogate baby for her mother.
