This might sound silly but im 20 years old & my mom doesnt trust me. But there's this guy i knew since i was in high school. Well me and him were hanging out & now we made it official. He's 21 & also have a 8 month old daughter. I really do like this guy but idk what my mom might say when i tell her he has a child & that im dating him. Do you guys have any pointers? [Confused]

(by the way i havent had a boyfriend in 1 1/2)

Definitely what our parents think affects nearly all of us. However, living with a parent kind of just means you're "under their roof" at the moment. Having a mature discussion about your choices with her would definitely be a good idea. But, you're an adult and as this point your life is your own and therefore your dating decisions are your own.

If your mother can't handle it, and you can't handle her reaction to it, perhaps look into moving out? Are you in college or university? Do you have a job?
