In brief: See below

Everyone has some arrhythmia.
It's normal to have skipped or extra beats - more at some times that others. Some are felt, most are not. Caffeine, nicotine, lack of sleep, stress, and many other things contribute. So, since everyone has some arrhythmia, i guess you'd say it's passed on to your child.
