  • Most babies are born with blue eyes; it could take up to a year or longer for them to change. The permanent color could still be green or brown (or could stay blue).

  • I think it would be very likely that you would have blue eyed children

  • My husband has green eyes, I have brown and our oldest one has blue eyes, second has brown and so does third. But, my father in law has blue eyes... he's the only one in the close family who does.

    and on another note, the oldes one is also left handed. My husband and I aren't but some of my aunts and uncles and one of my husband's aunt was too... Weird how genes work out!

  • It's actually very possible. It just means that both you and your husband carry the blue-eyed trait even tought neither of you have blue eyes. It would be much less likely for two blue-eyed parents to have a brown-eyed baby.

  • we all have a dominant and recessive gene for our characteristics, so theres a good chance. but like said before, most babies (white babies) are born with blue eyes. and they can change, but is still possible that they may stay blue. mom and dad had blue eyes, i have hazel (they were green for a long time). just happens to work out that way.

    Not true. You can have either two dominant or two recessive traits.

  • Most babies are born with blue eyes. It can take up to a full year before a baby has a permanent eye color. We didn't start to notice a change in our daughters eye color until she was almost 4 months old. I have brown/green eyes and DH has light brown eyes but she came out with blue eyes. Now she has brown/blue eyes but they're getting more and more brown every day. :)

  • Omg its so crazy your asking lol. I have been thinking this for a while. I have hazel eyes and my husband had dark brown eyes. My son is now three months old and still has brown eyes. The only person he could have gotten them from is my father. So I would say it is possible, I wouldn't be worried.
