That depends a lot on what continuity you prefer. In some cases, Time Lords are not born but genetically weaved through looms on Gallifrey and they're essentially born into being a Time Lord. In which case they'd technically be born with the ability to regenerate. But that's not the only possibility and we don't really know how it works otherwise.
