This was actually settled at the end of TKAA back in season 3. Lisa (cannon) says that Dean is NOT Ben's father.
*Moving this to the season 3 section8

Kripke himself confirmed that Ben wasn't Dean's son in an interview.

Yeah, Lisa said she had a DNA test done and confirmed who the father was. It wasn't Dean, though I don't think for a moment that would stop Dean from loving Ben as his own. *sniff* :)

Something in me still wonders now whether part of that story line was in response to "Dean as a Dad" fanfiction - you know, because as a show they've acknowledged fanfiction more than once or twice. It's probably a stretch though, I don't know.

Well to be honest Kripke and Lisa could you know actually lie and mislead us as it isnt the first time that a shows creator could do that or contradict themselves, ect..

darkcarpathianprince - I think Ben is a fairly insignificant piece of information, mytharc-wise, to go to so much trouble to lie over, don't you? :)
Anyway - Ben isn't Dean's son. So what? It's not like Dean can't be a father to him. Ben, Lisa and Dean perfectly showcase what SPN highlights so well and what Sam struggled with throughout the entire run thus far: non-traditional families. Bobby, Dean and Sam were a family, and that "family" stretched to include Ellen and Jo as well. So now Dean has a chance at happiness with another family; Lisa and Ben. Doesn't matter that Ben isn't his biological son.
