1. Dear Sophie, under the Zambrano ruling of the European Court of Justice, a non-EU father, such as your Argentinian partner, has the right to both live and work in any country of the EU, including Britain, to support that EU citizen child, which your child would be as it will be a British citizen.
2. This means that once your british citizen child is born, your Argentinian partner will be able to apply for a visa to both lIve and work in the UK. So, once the child is born, you should register him as father of the child in the Birth Certificate.
3. Your partner would apply for an EEA Family Permit. Here is a link to the Government webpage which sets this application process out https://www.gov.uk/family-permit. The visa is free.
4. Essentially, your Argentinian partner would both have a retained right of residence and also be a family member of an EU citizen child.
