In brief: Depends

Ehlers danlos is a family of disorders, which has 6 major and several minor types.
Given the multiple genes involved, it can be inherited in both autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive patterns, and can even spring from a de novo mutation. Penetrance depends on the type of mutation, and can therefore not be reliably calculated without more information.
