So the child wont be a qualifying child, since its not related to the taxpayer, but both girlfriend and her child may be considered qualifying relatives.

The taxpayer won't qualify as Head of Household (since nobody is related to him), but could file Single with 2 qualifying relatives....assuming they meet all the other qualifications for being a dependent.
