Legal Question in Family Law in Virginia

I have been separated from my spouse for over 6 months. I live in Virginia. I began seeing someone and have found out she is pregnant. Is there any legal ramifications that could come from this seeing as that I'm not totally divorced?

Yes, the fault ground for divorce in the Commonwealth known
