If he can get off lifetime probation he will be allowed to be around his own children. If he can not get his lifetime probation terminated then he will have to seek the approval of the court or his probation officer to have contact with any children, including his own. Some people are successful in getting off lifetime probation if they complete their counseling and do well on a risk assessment. However, the soonest we have ever been able to get anyone off lifetime probation has been after they ahve completed about 7 years of probation. The facts of each case are different though and many times it takes much longer to get off lifetime probation.
If he stays out of trouble, this is a possibility. But it will be up to his probation officer to decide whether he will be granted unfettered contact with any children of his own that might be born.
