Surprise! Michael Lohan just ‘officially’ became a dad again (the awkward way – via TV paternity test), and that means Lindsay’s got a new little sister.
A DNA test shows that Lohan, 52, who’s already expecting a baby with his 29-year-old gal pal Kate Major, did indeed father an out-of-wedlock child with a woman who had claimed to have had a relationship with the then-married man more than 17-years ago.
The revelation came on — where else — TV!
Lohan — appearing on an episode of The Trisha Goddard Show airing Thursday on NBC — gets the news when Goddard hands an envelope with the results of the DNA test to 17-year-old Ashley Horn, who’s sitting next to her mom Kristy, who has long maintained she had a secret relationship with Lohan in the early 1990s, resulting in birth of Ashley.
Following the awkward revelation that Michael is in fact her dad, Ashley’s mom bursts out crying while Michael simply looks stunned.
“I’m good,” Ashley says repeatedly, with no emotion, as Goddard hugs her.
But when Michael then stands and attempts to hug his new-found daughter, Ashley resists saying, “No! No! No!” with Michael pleading, “I just want to hug you.”
In a video clip obtained Wednesday by RadarOnline.com, Ashley insists right before the announcement that she doesn’t want to be part of the Lohan-family, but just wants to know the truth, saying: “’What gives you the right to tell me that the kids have a right to disown me. What made you say that to me? How can you keep lying?”
“I don’t want to be a part of the Lohan trainwreck,” Ashley says.
Michael clearly gets agitated backstage and demands, “I’m not playing Trisha’s game. She wants me out there now, or I leave.”

News of the positive paternity test will no doubt shock the entire Lohan family as Ashley was conceived in 1994, between the birth of Lindsay’s siblings Ali and Cody, and while he was still with his then wife Dina Lohan.
Besides the four children Michael has with ex Dina, the patriarch of the Lohan clan is expecting another child with long-time girlfriend Kate Major.
Prior to the results of the test being known, Ashley claims Michael has never been there for her and has refused to acknowledge that she is his — except for early on in her childhood.
“Being there and then disappearing,” Ashley says. “You talked to me when I was seven-years-old. Why would you even tell me to call you daddy?”
Ashley’s mother gets angry with Michael on set saying, “You have known about Ashley since the beginning! You’ve been promising to take the DNA test. How could you do something so cruel?”
“I think I’m gonna get sick,” Michael says backstage, just before doing the DNA test.
Making a special appearance is talk show host Maury Povich, who sits down one-on-one with Michael for a special tell-all interview to find out why he’s doubted that Ashley is his all these years.
