Baby with Foreign spouse

Hi, My wife and I just received our I-130 approval! We are now in the process of getting everything together to send to NVC. She is 33 weeks pregnant with our first child. He will be born around June 9-15 in Ukraine where she is, which will be long after we submit everything. Do I need to somehow add him to this later? Wait till hes born to do NVC stuff? Or just report his birth and get his United states passport and he wont need to be added and will enter america fine as a citizen? Any help is appreciated.

Go through the CRBA process for birth abroad and apply for passport . A child cannot be included in a spouse visa anyway ..

Yes, if you are eligible to pass down citizenship: https://ua.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/child-family-matters/crba/ 5 years of physical presence in the U.S. or possession (at least 2 years of which were after age 14) is required from you. "Please submit old passports with U.S. entry / exit stamps if available.  Other evidence that can be submitted includes documents such as school transcripts; employment, tax, bank and medical records; utility bills; rent receipts; or other official documents."
