Obviously there are dep issues between you that need to be resolved, such as this issue of him not feeling good enough for you --- see a relationship counsellor URGENTLY, and your local branch of FAMSA should be able to recommend some within reach of you.
Sounds like he has many issues about fatherhood, and father/child relationships arising out of his own childhood and his elaionship with his own father, which he needs to resolve. He may have low self-esteem, and may feel the need for people to TELL him about liking and respecting him, because he cannot sense and assume that withouit being told.
Lifeline ( number on this page ) can provide some emergency counselling, but he should then see a professional counsellor as soon as this can be arranged, with you being available to join in some sessions. Make i clear to him that you think a great deal of him, an want him to be around to be the faher to your child together, and that you are confident he can overcome his depresion and become a good father
