I would limit the cat to an indoor cat even if Fiance doesn’t like it – explain to him that you can’t have fleas popping up when you have a newborn baby in the home, that is the last thing you need.

Our cat is a cat that goes everywhere, there are some places I can’t even imagine how she’d get there (once I found her on top of the fridge too scared to get back down). If you don’t want the pets on the bed you simply need to keep them out of the room, don’t want the pets on your other furniture then you’ll need to get them ample items of their own to frolic on and train them to stay off of the furniture, with the counters and table that is just some training you’ll need to do (typically just clutter the edges to deter the cat from jumping up). 

As far as the hair situation goes you need to take action about that if it bothers you. Get some rollers out and also brush the cat as you would your dog to get the loose hairs out before they get all over the place. 

I also recommend to start looking at the dog and cat as equals, your post heavily favours the dog over the cat. Cats are smart enough to know when you hate them, and if something gets on your nerves it’ll feel inclined to continue (it is even worse considering that doesn’t bother the person who clearly cares for it). Show the cat some kindness and compassion and maybe it’ll start behaving in a manner you prefer. I also hope you realize that it is possible your dog could’ve been the one to bring it into the home, not just the cat you dislike.
