That depends on how you got your U.K. citizenship. If you were born in the UK before 1983, you got the citizenship by birth in the UK alone. In such a case you can pass your U.K. citizenship to your child (by descent). Your child is automatically a U.K. citizen. Also, if either one of your parents was a U.K. citizen at your birth and you were born after 1983, you still can pass U.K. citizenship to your children (again by descent). Again, your child is automatically a U.K. citizen. However, if you were born outside the U.K. and got your citizenship by descent (one of your parents was a U.K. citizen), it becomes a little more difficult. You still can try to register your child as a U.K. citizen, but beware that you must meet certain requirements (such as having lived continuously in the U.K. for 3 years before the child's birth). Also, this is at the descretion of the Home Office, and your baby has no official "right" to be U.K. citizen. Here in detail:
