N-400 3 yr rule foreign born spouse

This may have been already address somewhere here but I'm not able to find the answer.


I got my letter today for my citizenship interview, applied under the 3 year rule. My US citizen spouse/sponsor was not born in the US, became a US citizen when she was 12 at the same time as her mother. 


My letter states I have to bring my US citizen spouses birth, naturalization or certificate of citizenship. She isn't sure if she was ever issued a certificate of citizenship, but currently does not have one. She just has her original foreign birth certificate and US passport. Will this be enough to prove her citizenship at the interview, even though it doesn't give US passport as an option?

Well, she must have had something that is proof of US citizenship when she applied for that US passport or they wouldn’t have issued it to her. She just doesn’t remember anything? 


Otherwise, a US passport is acceptable proof of US citizenship, I think.
