Just the fact a child is born in the UK does not make them automatically British.

If your child was born after you acquired British citizenship or settled status then yes, your child is British and you can apply straight away for your child’s first British passport.

If your child is born in the UK and you do not have settled status at the time of birth, you can register your child as a British citizen as soon as at least one of the parents becomes settled in the UK or when the child reaches the ages of 10, whichever happens sooner.
