  • Blue eyes are a ressesive gene. If both parents have that gene than they can have a blue eyed baby. It is more than just mom/dad genes it can go back generations. I have blue eyes, hubby has brown...there are blue eyes somewhere in his family because we have two blue eyed girls and only one brown eyed. My oldest son's BF is blue eyed and my second son's birth parents are brown eyed he has brown eyes. You can google it or go to ask.com and pull up lots of explainations.

  • “So contrary to what used to be thought, it is possible for two blue-eyed parents to have a brown-eyed child, although this is not common.”

  • no... i'm positive that my daughter will have brown hair and brown eyes because thats what my boyfriend's parents and my parents have. i have blonde hair and green eyes, my boyfriend has blonde hair and light blue eyes which are recessive traits so our child will most likely look like our parents because they all have dominant traits

  • here is another fun fact....my parents both have brown eyes, brown eyes and blue eyes run in my family on both sides. however my little brother and i, in addition to looking identical, both have bright dark green eyes, and no we are not adopted haha...so somewhere in our genealogy there must have been someone with green eyes....funny how traits work like that

  • According to my HS biology class - no, two blue eyed people can only have blue eyed children because blue is a recessive trait.
    Brown = BB or Bb, Blue = bb
    A child gets one B or b from each parent, and if both parents are bb, then the child can only get bb.
