  • Not as good as you'd think. I have 2 redheaded grandmothers and in a total of 12 children 15 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren there is ONE redhead. And plenty of us have red on both sides. It's a recessive trait. But sometimes you get lucky and the combo of genes gives you a whole set of redheaded kids.

  • Yeah I have to agree with a couple of other Mom's on here that say they are not as high as you would think. I am a red head. My whole family are red heads on maternal and paternal side. My husband is blond but has red heads on his side, so it would seem very likely. We have 3 blond hair blue eyed kids.

  • I have a few redheads in my family,and out of my husband with dark hair I have a son with light brown hair,another boy with a deep orange hair,and one boy with strawberry blondish red color,my daughter has a gorgeous head of dark auburn,with dark eyes and the whole works! I will say this too,if your a redhead and can get a tan your sooooo sooooo lucky,I hate being milky white.
