Is it true that you can not get a divorce if the women is pregnant?

I have been separated for 7 monthsbut we did not get divorced. He says we can’t while I’m pregnant. He is not the father and I also heard that since we are still married even though he is not the father, he will have to sign the birth certificate saying he is. I cannot get a paternity test until the baby is born.
