In brief: It won't
This will only be an issue if there is a question of paternity.

In brief: It doesn't
Blood type, by itself, won't cause problems with your child.
If the mother has a negative rh factor (reported with the blood type e.g. B+ vs. B-) and the father is positive, that may cause an issue for the fetus but this is easily managed by the obstetrician with a simple medication. Certain genetic conditions you have or carry might affect your child though. Discuss with your doctors.
