How can a dad with brown eyes and a mom with hazel eyes have a baby with blue eyes?

How can a dad with brown eyes and a mom with hazel eyes have a baby with blue eyes?

Genetics: The brown eyes parent may have a green/blue, but the brown gene is dominant so eyes look brown. But when that green/blue gene matches with similar gene from the spouse, then baby can have light eyes. ...Read more

What eye color will a child receive if its dad has dark brown eyes and its mom has blue eyes?

What eye color will a child receive if its dad has dark brown eyes and its mom has blue eyes?

Depends: Eye color has complex inheritance but brown vs blue is not too difficult. If the father is dark brown due to having both genes brown, then the child must get one brown from his dad and he will have brown eyes. If mom is true blue, she has both genes blue and her child will get only that color gene from her. If dad has one brown and one blue then 1/2 of his children will get blue eyes. ...Read more

I have baby blue eyes. How did I inherit it if my father is a black african from ghana with brown eyes and my mom being mostly of a white origin with baby blue eyes. She is of 1/2 greek, 1/4 egyptian, and 1/4 italian. How did I end up with the same ve

Simple gene answer: Each trait like eye color is defined by a 2 genes 1 from each parent. Brown eye gene (B) dominates blue eye gene (b).A parent like your dad could be BB brown or Bb brown while your mom can only be bb blue. Since you have blue eyes, your dad must be Bb brown & gave you his b gene to combine with moms & make you blue. It doesn't matter where they got the genes, this is how you got yours. ...Read more

Recessive trait: Blue eyes are inherited as a recessive trait. This means you must have the "blue eyed gene" from both parents. Brown eyes are dominant which means you only need one "brown eyed gene" to have brown eyes. Your father must have one blue eyed and one brown eyed gene, and your mother has 2 blue eyed genes. Your inherited one from each of them. Ethnic background has nothing to do with it. ...Read more

Two genes did it: If mom had blue eyes she could only give you a blue gene. For you to have blue eyes, your dad had to carry a silent blue gene that he gave to you rather than his dominant brown gene. It doesn't matter how many cultures the genes passed through. This is straightforward stuff. ...Read more

I have light brown eyes, my mom has blue eyes, husband has blue eyes, blue eyes run in his family what are the chances of our baby having blue eyes?

50% per conception: If both your husband and mother have blue eyes and yours are brown, you are a carrier of a blue eye gene. Your brown gene dominates your blue, so yours are brown, but since dad can only donate a blue gene, your offspring will have 1 blue gene from him and either blue or brown from you. Your kids have equal chance of being blue or brown. ...Read more

2 african american parents. Moms grandfather was white with blue eyes. The baby turned out white with blue eyes statistically what odds was this?

2 african american parents. Moms grandfather was white with blue eyes. The baby turned out white with blue eyes statistically what odds was this?

Recessive trait: Blue eyes are a recessive trait. That means that a gene for blue eyes must be inherited from both mom and dad in order to get a baby with blue eyes. There is not enough information in your answer to give a statistical probability. ...Read more

How common is it for my eyes to change colour so drastically? I have brown eyes and my dad has one blue eyes one green eye (that appears yellow sometimes) why the rapid change?

How common is it for my eyes to change colour so drastically? I have brown eyes and my dad has one blue eyes one green eye (that appears yellow sometimes) why the rapid change?

Not common: Eyes generally do not change colour after the age of 6 months. Certain conditions, such as arcus senilis, can cause eyes to appear to become more blue or grey, and others, such as certain inflammations and glaucomas can cause a brown iris to turn blue. If there is a rapid change in your eye colour, see an eye doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more

Can you tell me in human beings, brown eyes are usually dominant over blue eyes. Suppose a brown-eyed woman whose father had b?

Can you tell me in human beings, brown eyes are usually dominant over blue eyes. Suppose a brown-eyed woman whose father had b?

Eye color: Is genetically complex with a number of factors that determine the actual color appearance. However the brown gene is dominant and the blue gene is recessive. Since only one dominant gene is required for brown eyes, then brown eyed parents can produce blue or brown eyed children, while two blue eyed parents should produce only blue-eyed children. ...Read more

My mother has green blue eyes and my father has brown eyes, why do I have hazel eyes?

My mother has green blue eyes and my father has brown eyes, why do I have hazel eyes?

Genetics: If I had to guess, your dad have you some melanin in his genes (maybe the recessive gene) and you don't get much from your mom's gene, so you end up with slightly more pigment than green eyes--hazel. ...Read more

Is it safe for a pt with history of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma (father died of malignant melanoma and sister has had a melanoma removed) to take enbrel (etanercept) for ra? Red hair, blue eyes.

Is it safe for a pt with history of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma (father died of malignant melanoma and sister has had a melanoma removed) to take enbrel (etanercept) for ra? Red hair, blue eyes.

Immunosuppressant: Enbrel (etanercept) is an immunosupressant to minimize yuur bodies attack of itself. Anything that lowers your immune system may increase your risk for certain cancers such as lymphoma, basal and squamous cell cancers, particularly if you are already fair skinned. Good sun block, wide brimmed hats, minimize sun exposure, etc. Your doctor should be able to discuss the relative risks of treatment of enbrel (etanercept). ...Read more

Moms mom has green eyes mom has brown eyes dads whole family has brown. I have brown my baby's dad has blue what percentage chance will baby have blue?

Depends: You either have two brown genes which means your children will all have brown eyes, or you have one blue and one brown which means 50% of your children will be blue. However not all genes are pure brown or pure blue so there is some uncertainty in these numbers due to greenish and hazel hues which alter the statistics. ...Read more

Can you tell me if I could have a child with green or blue eyes even though I have dark brown eyes?

Can you tell me if I could have a child with green or blue eyes even though I have dark brown eyes?

Yes: Your eyes require only one brown dominant eye color gene to make you brown, leaving room for a green or blue recessive gene in your mix. Dad would need to have a similar recessive gene to add, but these are possible. ...Read more

Could you tell me if my wife has blue eyes, and I have brown eyes, can our child still have blue eyes?

Could you tell me if my wife has blue eyes, and I have brown eyes, can our child still have blue eyes?

Possibly: The brown eye gene dominates over blue so all blue eyed people have 2 blue eye genes. Your wife will only pass the blue gene to her offspring. As a brown eyed male, you could have one blue and one brown or two brown genes. If you only have brown, your kids together should have brown eyes. If you have a blue and a brown, you could have a blue eyed kid. ...Read more

When I was a baby I had blue eyes, as I grew up they turned green, and now I'm 18 and their slowly turning brown, I want to keep them green, how?

Sorry: The color of the iris is determined by your genetics. The iris is inside the eye and cannot be modified without harm to the vision. If you want different color eyes, the only way is to pick out a colored contact lens to wear over the front of the eye. ...Read more

How can a child have blue eyes when both parents have dark brown eyes?

How can a child have blue eyes when both parents have dark brown eyes?

Brown dominant: Two brown eyed parents that produce a blue eyed child are both carriers of the blue eye recessive gene. Brown dominates. They both have bb for eye color. This means a 1/4 chance for blue, a 50% chance for bb carrier brown, a 25% chance for full bb brown. ...Read more

I have brown hair brown eyes, husband has blue eyes blonde hair fair skin, will baby most likely have brown eyes and brown hair?

Difficult to say: The genetics of human eye and hair color are very complex--you can pin the odds down better the more genetic history of eye and hair color you can obtain--siblings, parents, aunts and uncles, grandparents, great-aunts and uncles. There are odds tables based on this information. Accurate prediction is possible with DNA analysis: 45 mutations in 12 genes for hair color. ...Read more

My 11 month baby was born with blue eyes. Over the past two months one eye has started to turn brown in the bottom half. Anything to worry about?

My 11 month baby was born with blue eyes. Over the past two months one eye has started to turn brown in the bottom half. Anything to worry about?

Don't worry: Eye color is not necessarily final until the end of the 1st or even 2nd year. The melanin deposits over time and the patterns can vary - often it is rings, but each eye can be different. Don't worry - especially if there is no other ocular issue. At the next pediatrician visit ask about it or make an appointment if you are curious. Don't worry - it's not good for either of you. ...Read more

Could I have a baby with blue eyes? I am half chinese and spanish. My husband, maternal grandma, great grandma/grandpa, & uncles have blue eyes.

Depends on situation: If you carry one blue eye gene (& you may given your background) this is possible. If your eye color reflects 2 non-blue eye genes it is not. The blue is a recessive trait & while your husband will only pass on a blue eye gene, it must pair up with one from you to give baby blue eyes. ...Read more

I have blue eyes. My husband has a greenish hazel color. What eye color will our baby more favor? Or is it just a 50/50 chance, of having either?

I have blue eyes. My husband has a greenish hazel color. What eye color will our baby more favor? Or is it just a 50/50 chance, of having either?

Unknown: Eye color is determinedined by the amount of melanin, a brown pigment, in the iris. As this is controlled by multiple genes, there is no way to know what color eyes your baby will have. ...Read more

Could blue eyes be dominate over brown?

Generally not: Brown eyes dominate over blue. While eye color inheritance is somewhat mixed, if the only colors in question are strongly blue and strongly brown, then brown dominates. This means of the two genes for any one characteristic, in this case brown, if you have one brown (the other can be either), your eyes will be brown. You would require two blue genes to get blue eyes. ...Read more
