Basically, no, not until someone is petitioning the court for adoption. In an adoption proceeding, his rights can be terminated with or without his consent. Your wording suggests that you and the father are not married, so technically the father does not have any specific rights unless and until a court order in a paternity case says what those rights are. But, nothing he does now will permanently prevent him from claiming rights at a later date.
