  • It all depends she may lighten up or she may get darker also. My step kids mom has a mixed son and he has gotten lighter shes very fair skin and the father was very dark he also had jamacian in him also. So i would say wait till shes about 5yrs old and see what happens. Hopefully her hair will stay curler them little curls are so cute on the little ones.

  • My son is also biracial. His father is 1/2 Haitian & 1/2 Spanish. When he(my husband) was youger his hair was softer and just wavy. Now that he is an adult it is a tighter curl-his hair is alot more coarse-but still looks nice. My son is very light skinned and has soft curls at 6 months old. However his cousins who are also the same ethnicity are much darker. They live in a warmer climate and get more sun exposure. I am sure your daughter will be beautiful no matter what her hair looks like or how dark her skin is. I don't think anyone can tell you these things-just have to wait and see. Personally I think bi-racial babies are some of the most beautiful babies in the world!

  • Anon, you're an idiot. Everyone wonders what their baby is going to look like when they get older.

  • Ok...

    My daughter is also biracial (white father). Her hair is very curly, and stays curly no matter if it's wet or dry. Get a de-tangling shampoo and'll need it!

    My daughter is almost 11 months old, and she is slightly tanned. When she was born, she looked like a fully-white baby. Nowadays you can tell she is biracial. I don't know if she'll ever get any darker, but I don't mind. She's my beautiful little wonder!!
