a question on biracial kids? Parents of biracial kids?

well Ilm just wondering I am expecting a baby whos half african american half german swedish danish and a little irish. I have been thinking of the baby I'm expecting and just like I have no idea. Like usually I'd just picture one of my baby pictures or my sisters. I sometimes think maybe like kaden who was half mexican. But I don't know. Anyway, do black/white babies look similar to mexican/white babies?

  • Every kid is different, but I would expect African textured hair, may be black, may not be. Eyes depend on yor and Dad's color, but most likely brown. Skin in between. From there, it's the Mr. Potato Head game we all play. (Your lips, my nose, your ears, my feet, etc)

  • My DD is quarter black (her dad is half black and im white) and she came out white as can be but has gotten color to her since. she is 2. She didn't come out lookin ANYTHING like I expected. She has the most gorgeous auburn colored hair and its curly and long. She's a gorgeous color. She's a different color than me...she is basically just tan. Not tryin to brag about my kid...but there's always someone that compliments on how beautiful she is :)

  • Also.....she doesn't really have ethnic hair. I mean it is really curly but its still not like that. It's hard to manage I'll tell ya that lol. And her eyes came out blue when she was born but they are dark brown now.

  • It all depends,my sister has 4 kids, 3 boys and a girl. Her first boy was med skin tone, her little girl was a little darker, her third son was almost as white as her, and her 4th, son was tan. They are all half Mexican. So it could be anywhere from light to med, maybe a little darker.
