This is what the instructions say:

What if I filed a petition for a relative when I was a

permanent resident, but I am now a U.S. citizen?

If you become a U.S. citizen while your relative is waiting for a visa, you can upgrade your relatives visa classification and advance the processing of that petition by notifying the appropriate agency of your naturalization. When you are a U.S. citizen, your spouse and any unmarried children under age 21 will have visas immediately available to them.

If you become a U.S. citizen after your Form I-130 petition

is already approved and it has been forwarded to the U.S.

Department of States National Visa Center (NVC), you should

notify the NVC that you have become a U.S. citizen. Requests

to upgrade petitions due to the naturalization of the petitioner

should be sent to:

National Visa Center

32 Rochester Avenue

Portsmouth, NH 03801-2909

Please include a letter with information regarding your relative, a

copy of your Naturalization Certificate, and a copy of the petition

approval notice. Once the NVC is notified that the petitioner

has been naturalized, the NVC will immediately send the visa

information on your relative to the designated U.S. Embassy or consulate abroad. To confirm that your approved petition has been forwarded to the NVC, you can contact the NVCs automated record message system at 1-603-334-0700 and, with a touchtone telephone, enter your USCIS receipt number.

If you become a U.S. citizen and your relatives petition has not

yet been approved by USCIS, you will need to notify the Service Center where you filed your relatives visa petition. You should send the notification to the Service Center address located on the receipt notice you received when you filed your Form I-130 petition. Please include a letter with information regarding your relative a copy of your Naturalization Certificate, and a copy of the petition receipt notice. Call Customer Service at 1-800-3755283 for additional assistance or if you are unsure about the status or location of your petition.

If your relative is your spouse and he or she has children who are

your natural children, stepchildren, or adopted children, and you did not file separate petitions for them, you must file a separate petition for each of them with evidence of your U.S. citizenship. Please include a copy of the receipt notice for the original petition.
