 than that of you or your husband, do you think your husband would question your fidelity or would he just chalk it up to weird genetics and not think a thing of it? Let's say you know the hospital didn't switch the baby or anything. It is YOUR baby.

One of my twins looks kind of Asian. He didn't look real Asian when he came out, but he kind of does now. It's weird. The boys don't look anything alike.

My husband is uneducated and doesn't understand genetics. I don't know what he'd think though.

that's hard to say, black babies don't usually come out dark skinned and there are so many shades of complexion.

Um idk. Ds looks nothing like dh and all like me and he never questions that. Not that he should but my genetics won out in that one. And dd looks just like dh.

 Lol, I just looked at your photos and they don't look anything alike. There are just so many possibilities when it comes to genetics.

I am white (with a lot of NA in me) and my SO is black and Mexican, so there is Hispanic ethnicity.  He is always teasing me and saying that all things are possible except Asian. If the baby comes out Asian, I am some explaining to do...lol.

He'd definitely joke about the baby not being his but I dont think he'd mean it.

My DH is Mexican, theres a few REALLY dark people and a few that look caucasian in his family. A few of his nephews look asian as well. 

So yeah. Our daughters looked white when they were born and are now medium skin toned.
