How is this possible???

My dd has blue eyes while my dh and I are both Mexican? He's 100% and I'm 1/2 Mex and we both have brown eyes mine are light and his very dark and rich chocolate brown. Neither of us have blue eyes and he kids flipped which I understand bc he thought I cheated on him but we just got a pro DNA test done and she's his like I said I have never cheated on him but he was hurt bc her eyes are blue. Is there any logical reasoning why? No one in our families has blue eyes either side. She's 10 months old so I doubt they will change.

  • That chart is not complete - my husband has brown eyes, I have blue and one of our daughters has green which, according to the chart, is impossible :)

  • You may have to go back multiple generations. My husband has hazel eyes, I have brown eyes, our son's eyes are blue-green.

  • They will probably change. Most babies are born with blue eyes.

    That's exactly what I was going to say!!!!

  • He didn't ask for it I offered it up to give him some comfort bc he's my husband and I would hate to always have that doubt and keep it in

  • They could still change as well. My son's stayed blue till he turned 1 and then turned grey. They didn't turn brown till he was 2.5. Even if you haven't seen anyone with blue eyes in your family you both have the recessive trait for it.

  • Man, I have to say, I'd be incredibly insulted and offended to have to get a DNA test just because of blue eyes, especially if I was half white.
