Child born before K1 is finished

I know a couple who is also getting their K1 in the Philippines. They just received their NOA1 a couple of weeks ago. Then she informs her finacee that she is pregnant from him his last visit to see her. (Never use cheap condoms, kids.) So now the question is how will this play out? If the child is born to a US citizen, does the child need to have a K2? Can the K2 be added after the K1 has already started processing?

If the child is eligible for USC, they will be able to get a US passport. With claim to USC, the child must travel on a US passport and cannot get a K2. If citizenship cannot be passed on to the child, the child can be added to the case even if the K1 is already in process, or if the K1 is already issued. Here is a link with info about acquiring USC at birth:

The USC Parent will have to file a Consular Report of Birth Abroad with the US Embassy if the child is born abroad: http://manila.usembassy.gov/service/citizenship.html

If the USC is the father then the child is a USC as well, need to complete the CRBA at the embassy and the child will be issued a U.S. passport. Not K-2.

I am hoping that your comment about "cheap condems" is just a joke. Because cheap or not, if your friend thought he was protected he may have more issues to think about. And this is not just a Philippino issue,,,, it happens all the time and everywhere, including in USA. Just saying....
