Default Dual citizenship for newborn

Hello all I am new to this site :-) I have a question- I am a US citizen by birth and my fiancé is a bajan and currently live in BBS. (currently in the process of filing a K1 visa for him)I am currently pregnant and wanted to know - while vacationing with my man if I hav the baby in BBS will the child have dual citizenship?? My fiancé is a citizen there by birth. Please help/enlighten in this issue
Thanks

Firstly.. it's not BBS.. it's BGI (for the airport) or BBD/BDS for the currancy.. or Bdos (sorry.. but BBS is a station on the radio)

0k.. so let's get technical. Normally I would say if the child is born here, then yes they would have Barbados Citizenship, but you would have to apply for US Citizenship for your child and they would never hold an actual US birth Certificate (but rather something called a Certificate of Live Birth Abroad) and only a Passport would show that the child is a US Citizen..

The other issue is .. that if you are planning on vacationing here, it means you have to fly here with at least 2 months left before the birth (someone correct this if I'm wrong) and Barbados Immigration might not give you that long to stay (especially if you are pregnant)..
