In brief: Need more info
There are several genetic types of albinism.
The genetic risk to your baby is based on your and your husbands status, ethnicity and knowing which pathway is affected in pigment production. Best thing to do is to see a genetic counsellor

In brief: Chances of Albinism
Albinism is a recessive genetic inherited disorder which in its complete state is unusual.
There are many forms of partial albinism, the most common is a white forelock. Many others are seen a fine white speckling of the skin, usually first evident around adolesence and is often unnoticed if a person is very fair or not sun exposed. There is usually a family history of similar people.
