I am bi-racial 1/2 white 1/2 black. My boyfriend is 100% black. My kids will take more on whose genes? I think my baby will take more on my boyfriend's side.

Hard to say.  My ex & I are both caucasion, and my daughter looks like his whole family.  They all look alike.  You wouldn't think I had anything to do with my daughter.

 There is absolutely no way to tell. I've seen biracial kids with blonde, frizzy hair, blue eyes and light skin. Or like my daughter, who has dark skin, green eyes and soft, relaxed curls.

Basically...genes are a crazy thing. There is no way to know what will happen.

There's no telling who's genes they will take more from. I have biracial children and they look like a mixture of us both. Not majority like one parent

You would never know until the baby is born.

I thought for sure my son was going to take after me in skin color but he didn't he took after my husband.

Genes are a weird thing. My sister is 1/2 white and 1/2 black. She has a medium brown skin and long hair with loose curls. And while she has her dad's forehead, she looks like a brown version of my blond haired, blue eyed, freckle having mother. She has dark brown almost black hair, but she has red streaks that run through it. There really is no knowing in advance.
