So I was wondering Is the light/white Skin gene More Dominant than a Hispanic/tan (not very dark not black) gene??
I always wonder what my baby will look like, my sister had a baby with a sligtly tan guy but he comes from a very tan family and their baby is so white he glows in the dark lol .
I have the same skin tone as my sisters we are both very very light skinned not ghostly or pale though just white and my Oh has a hispanic tan but he is not very dark when he's not tan so i was wondering will my white skin genes win over? (everyone in my family is pretty white and we are hispanic! lol ) what do you think here ill put pics of both of us lol
i am dark skinned, well olive skin toned. and well, my baby boy got my skin tone, verses his red headed daddys pale skin hahaha. but id say it is cause his daddy has red hair blue eyes and fair skin, and im brown eyes brown hair and brown skin and he got brown eyes light brown hair and olive skin
Dark genes are more dominant..all tho I find it odd because our babies have 50% of us and 50% of daddys genes
my grandsons are half black and my granddaughter is half Mexican and all 3 are dark. my daughter is very fair skinned.
I am Caucasian and OH is Mexican (pretty light skin) and two if our babies are white and one is med.
I have a friend that is super white and her husband is dark Mexican her kids turned out just like their daddy. I think it depends on each persons genes
Here are my babies
the dark is not always the more dominent gene as im very pale white with red hair and my husband is very dark hes arab and 3 of our children are very pale like me all with red hair and our youngest is the only 1 with brown hair and eyes and dark skin
It's really impossible to say- it's apparently not as simple as "this gene is dominant so the kids will take after the person with that gene". I had always heard that red hair is very recessive, but one of my friends has an Irish-Australian father with very pale skin and flaming red hair. Her mother has black hair and quite dark skin and I think may be of Hispanic descent. My friend herself takes after her father 100%- bright orange hair, very pale skin, green eyes. Her brother though is somewhere in between the parents.
I have a Japanese friend married to a Dutch guy- being Japanese she of course has black hair, but her husband is very fair. Their youngest son is a platinum blonde- very unusual for a half-Japanese child, but apparently it happens.
It really seems like a lottery, and sometimes odd combinations of genes come up meaning results are quite different from what we expect- I think it's impossible to predict what skin/hair colour your kids will end up with.
