In principle (every case is different and to give you an accurate answer we would need to study your case), having a child in Spain is not a strong enough reason to grant the baby's parents residency in Spain. Even if the child managed to obtain Spanish citizenship they would not obtain automatic residence for this sole reason. You would need to request a residence permit based on arraigo.
