How many of you have a child from a partner with brown or blue eyes and the baby had blue eyes? My eyes are blue, and I have one DS whose father had brown eyes. DS's eyes are also brown. My second DS is due in 2 weeks and his father also has brown eyes. I'm wondering what the likelihood of him having blue eyes is?


**Talon James Toshio was born on the 14th of December with blue eyes :) **

Not very likely. Brown is a dominant gene while blue is recessive. I have blue eyes and DH has brown eyes. Our daughter has brown eyes.

Brown eyes are dominant..but there is a chance for blue eyes. I have hazel eyes with natural light brown hair (I dye it auburn but it looks natural BC of my fair skin and freckles) and dh has blonde hair and blue eyes. I'm hoping my baby has blue eyes but we will see after its born. ;)

I have brown, my husband has blue. Both our boys have blue. I'm sure if I had a girl she'd have brown eyes.

It depends on whether the father hasa recessive gene to pass on. If he has only the brown dominant genes, then there is no chance baby will have blue eyes. If he has the recessive gene to pass, there is a 50/50 chance.
