The color of your baby's eyes and hair are dependent on the genes that you and your partner carry. They in turn are dependent on the genes that your parents gave to you and so on through your family tree, genes or any other traits passed down through generations are said to be hereditary.
Humans, like most familiar plants and animals have paired chromosomes, and are described as diploid. One chromosome of each pair is contributed by each parent, one by the female parent in her ova, and one by the male parent in his sperm, which are joined at fertilization.
The fundamental reason for eye and hair color is all down to dominance: Whether or not the colors are of a dominant or recessive gene. The dominant trait will determine what color the gene will be.
The thing with brown hair and red hair is, that brown is a dominant trait, but red hair is actually a different allele, a variant form of gene. Getting red hair is a recessive trait; you have to get a gene from both parents. A recessive gene is also one that will only express itself when there are no dominant genes present. However, if a person with red hair has a baby with someone who does not have red hair, say a blond, the baby could have blond or brown hair because the red hair trait would have no affect without its counterpart.
As for eyes, it depends on what you are starting with. Brown is dominant over green and blue, but green is dominant over blue. There are actually four different genes on two different chromosomes that code for eye color, so that's why we all have varying shades of colors.
In any case the most important thing is that your baby is born strong and healthy; no matter what color their hair or eyes.
Brown is a dominant color. However, if one of your parents had blue eyes, that gives your child a 50% chance of having blue eyes. As for the hair, brown is actually dominant color. My husband has red hair and myself brown. Both my parents had brown so that is the gene that I passed on to my child which means there is no chance of another color unless there was a genetic defect (doesn't mean that anything bad will happen to the baby, just a different hair color) and that rarely happens. My baby's eyes changed around 3 months old, but they say they can change up until about a year old.
Well red hair the less color found, and brown hair is dominant. But to know which DNA is more dominant you have to know if his relatives have almost like his hair color and eye color. But most likely I predict that your baby will have reddish or brown hair and probably brown or blue eyes with a bit of blue.
I know that brown eyes is the dominant eye colour, but a few people I know you have had babies where the father has brown eyes and the mother has blue eyes or the other way round, and the baby has ended up with blue eyes. My opinion if think that there is more chance of your baby having brown eyes, brown eyes are beautiful, Congratulations:)
I have brown hair and hazel eyes and my boyfriend has red hair and hazel eyes
Well the true answer of this question is only known by God Almighty. We can only guess here. Usually the new born will have the combination of characteristics of both of you.. Most babies have resemblance with their mother and some with their father. I can say he will have the color of your eyes and hair.
Well although there is no guarantee and no way of knowing for sure what color hair/ eyes your baby will have until you see him/ her, I have red hair and green eyes and my son's dad has dark brown hair and eyes and our child has blonde hair and hazel eyes..... A pure mix of us both. Your child could be the same!
My father has brown hair and my mother has brown hair. My father has crystal blue eyes and my mothers are brown. I have reddish/brownish hair and my eyes are hazel (mix of blue, green) but they mostly stay a greenish blueish color and I have brown dots in my eyes all around my pupal. I don't know, I just thought I would add my genes into this thread =D
Well I have dark grey eyes and strawberry blonde hair.my mother has brown hair and hazel eyes and my father had dark auburn hair and dark blue eyes.my mothers entire family have brown hair and blue or brown eyes and my fathers family mainly have auburn hair and blue eyes but the real redheads have properly fiery hair.I would really like to know how I ended up with these colours?
I have red hair and blue eyes, my husband has dark blond hair and blue eyes.My father had red hair but it was become dark brown when he was 20 years old.My mother has dark brown hair.The father of my husband had black hair and his mother has blond hair.What colour hair will be our baby(boy)?Is it possible that he will have red hair?
Well....I was in the same board as you...! My husband has blue eyes and red hair, and I have dark brown hair and brown eyes. My first child has blue eyes and light brown hair and my second has hazel eyes and red hair. I hope this helps but all I want to say is that don't worry about what hair your babys going to have, jus wish that it is healthy.
All the best...!
First of all-CONGRATULATIONS!!Second, I'm not a Dr.but I have 3 kids w/a blue eyed man,and unfortunatly most of the time brown tends to be the dominate trait over blue.All my kids have brown eyes,and as a Medical Assistant I must honestly say your babys eyes will probaly be brown and beautiful.As for the hair-it's a 50/50 chance either way.Good luck,& God Bless.
Brown is the dominent eye color. But you can never be 100% sure. Even after your baby is born their eye color will still change. If you are caucasion your baby will most likely be born with dark blue or grey eyes and they will change really up to a year old. My son who is 17 months now had dark blue eyes and they gradually lightened for the first year to a brighter blue color.
I have ginger hair and green eyes, my mums side has the same colouring and my dads side has mousey brown all with freckles. My Parnet has blue eyes and jet black hair his mothers brown hair his father has black hair and his brother and sister have black hair an blue eyes. What would our baby most likely look like?

Well it depends on the genes in your family. Whichever trait is dominant then that is the one most likely to happen. Make a genetics chart and see what happens.
I have brown hair & eyes my husband have light green eyes and light brown hair
I have red hair and grey eyes my partner has black hair and green eyes. Our little boy has light brown hair + grey eyes. Apparently you can only have a red haired child if both parents carry the gene.
I have black hair and light brown eyes....my boyfriend has black hair and hazel eyes they look green sometimes
I have red hair and grey eye colour and my boyfriend has brown hair and eyes what colour hair will our child have?
I don't know anything about hair colour but the eyes is a fifty fifty chance
I have blonde hair and blue eyes and my partner has brown hair almost looks black and green eyes just curious to know what my babys hair colour might be ?
Most likely red hair and brown eyes. These are the dominate colors. Most everyone I know has had children with these features under the same situation. All of my children (7), have darkish red hair and brown eyes, with the exception of one. I have dark brown hair almost black with hazel eyes and my husband has red hair with blue eyes (rare). However know that the LORD will make your baby as only HE sees fit. As I said one of my boys was blessed with BLONDE HAIR and BLUE EYES, go figure that one. The only person in either of our families ever with blonde hair was my baby brother and as for the Blue eyes, my baby brother and my husbands mother. Just thank God everyday he has blessed you with this child and pray for the cutest,happiest, healthiest child in the universe.May God Bless you and you new little baby.
My mom and dad both have brown hair and eyes....I have blue eyes and I had brown hair but I recently died it redish, my little sister has brown hair and eyes. My boyfriend has blue eyes and brown hair...what color eyes and hair will our first child have?
My ex husband and I both have brown eyes, and we have two boys with blue eyes. My mother has brown and my father has green. My ex inlaws have brown. So how did the boys get blue? On my mother's side of the family, she is one of 15 kids. All the boys have blue, all the girls have brown. I have brown eyes and my 2 brothers have blue. My male cousins (on my Mom's side) have blue and my female cousins have brown. That eye gene seems to be stronger on my Mom's side then my father's - and I've apparently passed it on to my boys.
I have red hair blue eyes red hair runs in my family. My husband has black hair brown eyes his family has light brown and black hair. What colour hair and eye colour will my child have?
Brown is absolutely not dominate! My mom had 5 kids, 4 girls 1 boy, we all have blue eyes and my mother has brown so there is really no way of telling the eye colour, and hair colour, theres really 50/50 on that.
