Hi,

Both Malaysia and Sinapore does not allow dual citizenship. if already registered by both both country, the person by 18 years old must give up one of it.

If your wife is Malaysian and give birth in Malaysia, your baby will have Malaysian Citizenship. After that you need to get passport for your baby and register Singapore Citizenship for your baby. Singapore allows dual citizenship until 18 yo, but Malaysia does not allow. So your baby will only has one passport, Malaysian Passport. If Malaysian Government know that your baby has dual citizenship/passport, they will revoke your baby citizenship.
