Husband here can sign the birth certificate.Child born during marriage is presumed to be the father of the child.At the time of the birth since she is married if signs the birth certificate he is presumed legal father and his name appears on it, child has his name here. Thats the reality of it here if he signs it he is the legal father.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Congrats on the grandchild.
