Legal Question in Discrimination Law in Virginia

I was wondering if a hiring manager that i interviewed with is allowed to ask this question even when he stated that "im not really supposed to ask this, but"

His question:" what your personal life like"?

My response:"what do you mean"

His response:"like are you a single dad with a kid"?
