Calidad en que declara - como tal.
Acting in this selfsame capacity.

There are of course a number of ways to express this. Here is one that would reflect the rather formal language typical of such documents.

I would hope that no one would suggest “acting/declaring as the father himself” as a viable option here.

i.e., “acting” in the *proceeding* resulting in the drafting of the birth certificate

“Appearing” might also work here instead of “acting.”

Or (to stick closer to the original, and reflect the relationship between “declarante” and “declara” in the original):

Acting as informant in this selfsame capacity.
