    Hi all,

    Just a pondering really.....can anyone have a guess, educated or otherwise what hair colour and eye colour our bub may have?

    I'm fair skinned, it burns in the sun, freckles, straight mousy hair (when not full of bleach! :rofl:) blue eyes.

    DH is of Italian decent, olive-ish skin, tans like mad, wavy dark brown/black hair, very dark brown eyes.

    I thought perhaps his dark genes would dominate, So what does everyone think? :shrug:

    I think the same, that dark genes will dominate. DH is Italian/Mexican so guess I won't be getting that blonde haired blue eyed baby, I've told him I'm very disappointed in him ;)

    Oo oo there is hope! I have dark blonde/brown hair and blue eyes.

    Actually thinking about it... My mum has dark hair with brown eyes and my dad has colouring and I have two dark haired dark eyed sisters and one blonde, green eyed sister.

    I know what color mine will have. Every one of my kids was born with almost black hair and real long. They also had grey eyes. As they got older it changed. My eldest has copper hair with blue eyes, my second daughter has brown hair with brown eyes, and my youngest had hazel eyes with brownish /blonde hair.

    I have dark hair and dark eyes. I am part native and my hubby has blonde hair blue eyes and redish beard LOL

    My hubby is Italian with very dark brown eyes and balck hair.
    I am Irish with dark brown hair and blue eyes.
    Both my boys have dark hair and brown eyes,my eldest son has the exact same eyes as hubby.
    Second DS has deep brown too but looks like me only he tans and has his dads italian colouring.

    Dr told me if one partner has brown eyes that they will usually dominate with the eye colour.
