No, it will not get worse with age.
CP is not hereditary, it is caused by an injury in the brain, at the time of dilivery (or a very short time afterwards).
That your boyfriend has CP doesn't affect your children's "risk" to get it. It's not a disease, it is a permanent condition - parents can't pass it on to their children!
