How, exactly, are you the stepfather of your fiancee's daughter, if you haven't married the mother yet? It sounds like you're going to be the stepfather one day, but are not yet. Is that correct?
You could marry your fiancee, and then file I-130 petitions for both. But until you have a legally recognized relationship to the daughter, you won't be able to file an I-130 for her.
