Genetics/What will my Baby look like?


Hi I am curious to what my child will look like.
Both me and my husband have pale white skin and brown hair.
I have brown eye but my mom and all of her family have blue eyes and some of my dads family has blue eyes.
My husband has blue eyes and all of his family have blue eyes.
I'm 5'4 and my husband is 6'5.

Hi Devin,

There is a  25 % chance that your child will be fair colored with blue eyes. Looks like you may have one gene for blue but brown dominates. Assuming your husband has two genes for blue eyes, your child may also have a chance for hazel eyes. The height can vary. There are tall children born to short parents and vice versa.  There is good chance for your child to tall. Hair color may be light brown.
