I'm pretty sure that Mary and Joseph were married. It was a virgin birth. Her child was the son of God, conceived through the holy spirit. At the Visitation, Elizabeth, Mary' sister remarks “And she spoke out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed [art] thou among women, and blessed [is] the fruit of thy womb. And whence [is] this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. And blessed [is] she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord (Luke 1:42-55)”.

You may not believe any of this, but that doesn't make the child a bastard.
