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

In brief: 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.
