I believe this is INCORRECT, and I'm not sure what difference the gender of the child is.

Fiance will require DS-156, DS-156K, and DS-157. See http://philippines.usembassy.gov/wwwhivk1.html

Children will require DS-156, and DS-157.

According to the US Embassy Manila website: http://philippines.usembassy.gov/wwwhniv1.html

"All nonimmigrant visa applicants, except diplomatic (A), official (G), personal employees of A and G visa holders (A-3 and G-5), certain U.S. Government sponsored exchange visitors (J), and certain NAFTA treaty nationals (TN) and treaty dependents (TD), must pay the machine-readable visa application fee equal to $100 U.S. dollars.

This fee can only be paid at designated branches of Citibank or Bank of the Philippine Islands. It must be paid in Philippine currency at the American government exchange rate prevailing on the day of payment. The bank will provide a receipt and DS-157 Form where payment is machine-validated by check-rite."

In other words, make sure you pay the fee for the fiance and ALL children too and are provided a DS-157 form to bring to the embassy.
