In brief: Possible

Genetics can influence your heart's responsiveness to the balance between sympathetic and parasympathetic tone as well as endocrine conditions such as hypothyroidism which can aggravate bradycardia.
Their are also hereditary connections between such things as maternal lupus and congenital complete heart block. Additional monitoring and assessing chronotropic responsiveness might be in order.
