What Color Eyes Will My Baby Have If I Have Blue Eyes And The Father Has Brown?

It depends on the recessive eye color gene that you carry. Brown is a dominant gene, so if you inherit it, you will have brown eyes, even if you carry the gene for blue or green eyes. Green and blue are both recessive genes and will therefore be taken over by brown. If you inherit two blue eye genes, your eyes will be blue. If you inherit two green eye genes, your eyes will be green. If, however you inherit one blue and one green eye gene, you may have either one or hazel eyes, which is a blend of the two.  For example: My mother has green eyes, and my father has brown eyes. My sister has hazel eyes, which means that my father must carry the blue eye gene as she inherited green from my mother and blue from my father. My sister's husband has brown eyes. Their son has blue eyes, which means that he, also, must carry the blue eye gene, as their son inherited one blue eye gene from them both. My brother has blue eyes, which means that my mother must also carry the blue eye gene, as he inherited the blue eye gene from both parents. Since your boyfriend is only half Mexican, he may or may not carry a color gene other than brown(Latinos usually always have brown eyes, which means that they carry two dominant brown eye genes). If by chance he carries the blue eye gene, there is a 50% chance your children will have blue eyes. If he has the green eye gene, your children will have a 50% chance of having green, blue, or hazel eyes, as they would carry both recessive genes. If he carries two brown eye genes, all of your children will have brown eyes, as the brown eye traits overtake the recessive blue traits you carry. As far as hair color goes, I am not sure what is the dominant color or how it works, as I did not study this in class.

The blue eyed parent can only pass on the gene for blue as he/she is pure breeding for blue eyes.     If this blue eyed parent had a child with a brown eyed PURE BREEDING parent ,then  All the children would be brown eyed (heterozygotes) as they could only be Bb  and the B (brown) always dominates.    ///////BUT if the blue eyed parent=bb   had a child with a brown eyed NOT pure breeding=Bb then on average 50 per cent of their progeny would be brown eyed=Bb and 50 per cent would be blue eyed =bb.   It all depends on the genotype of the parents.

I'll bet the little darling will have a 50-50 chance of having blue eyes.
 
Here's an interesting news item from February 2008.
 
(CBS) From Paul Newman to Frank Sinatra to Cameron Diaz. From residents of snowy Moscow to Palestinians in Jerusalem.

Danish geneticists say everyone with blue eyes is not just related, but descended from one person, CBS News correspondent Sheila MacVicar reports.

In the basement of the University of Copenhagen, frozen in vats of liquid nitrogen are thousands of DNA samples.

"This is like our secret, our gold mine," said Prof. Jesper Troelsen, a geneticist. "We dig down and find the samples we are going to use and ask specific questions about genetics."

And this time the question was, "what makes blue eyes blue?"

"All people with blue eye color have a special fingerprint," said gene mapper Hans Eiberg.

Brown, they say, is the default color for human eyes ... Produced by melanin.

Blue eyes are caused by a genetic switch, programmed to suppress the melanin. It's a genetic mutation.

And in the DNA of hundreds of blue-eyed people tested by the Danish team, they found exactly the same mutation every time.

"And what would the chances of that coming from more than one person? It has to be from one person?" MacVicar asked.

"Yes, we are very sure," Eiberg said.

The first blue eyed person was probably born near the Black Sea just 10,000 years ago when the entire population of the world was less than 50,000.

Those mutant genes spread on a wave of human migration.

Today, nearly 95 percent of Scandinavians have blue eyes.

What scientists don't know is if having blue eyes was some kind of evolutionary advantage … if blue-eyed people could see better in the low winter light of Northern Europe for example. Or, was it just about downright attractiveness?

Genetics really can turn your brown eyes blue, and now, there is a whole new answer to that question: "Where did you get those eyes?"

Most likely brown. Brown hair/eyes are a more dominant gene.

Brown is a dominate color so the baby will probably have brown eyes, but if the brown eyed parent has blue eyed people in there family the baby could get the blue eyes
