Do you know anyone with brown eyes who has two blue eyed parents?

I'm researching genetics and from what I understand thus far this is not possible but it has to have happened somewhere?

  • my ma and dad had brown eyes, my sister Jenny has blue eyes, I have brown eyes and Katie got landed with the weirdest shade of green eyes- From what I was told, green eyes are considered a genetic birth defect-

  • Brown eyes are a dominant trait, so its very possible.

  • I know 2 brown eyed people who have a blue eyed baby, but I think what you are saying is impossible genetically.

  • well I understand that brown is the dominant trait and that two brown eyed parents can have a blue eyed baby but from what I know now if you have blue eyes its because you got two blue eyed traits so if you had a baby with someone who also has two blue eyed traits thats 4 blue eyed traits so where did the brown trait in the baby come from?

  • If I have brown eyes, and baby daddy has blue eyes, can I have a baby with blue eyes- Not that I would want that, I want him to have brown eyes, but can it happen?

  • It is impossible for 2 blue eyed parents to have a brown eyed baby, Bio 101 :)
