I'm double recessive and DH is single recessive so there's a 50/50 chance of blue. The kid will probably come out blond since we both started out that way. (DH is now dark brown, I kept the blond.)

My son's eyes are a dark, shiny brown (like his dad's) and my daughter's are a brown/green hazel with a tiny ring of blue around the edges. I would guess that this baby will have brown eyes because it seems really prevalent in our families, but we do have some blue eyes and some sea-green and that would be fun.

Great question...no idea! DH has hazel eyes, and I have very blue eyes. I really hope for blue, but I bet they will be hazel/gray.

I have green eyes- they were blue until mid-childhood. DH has blue eyes. DD has blue eyes. I'd be surprised if this baby had anything other than blue... Although if either of my children take after me, their eyes could turn green as they grow up.

Probably brown. I have super dark brown, and DH has brown. Stepdaughter has brown.

Although my dad has very blue, so i guess anything is possible!

I am hoping for another blue eyes baby. I adore my daughter's eyes. They kind of change between bright blue and grey! I have green eyes and DH has the same type of blue so we will see!

im guessing brown. my parents and siblings all have blue and I have green but DH is Mexican and his entire family has brown eyes. Since brown is the dominant gene thats what all my kids will most likely have (unless somewhere WAYYYYYY far back there is blue on his side lol) DS started with hazel and now they are slowly transitioning to brown

I am thinking blue. DH and I have a lot of blue in our backgrounds even though mine are now green and his are now hazel lol. I highly doubt they'd be brown, but my mom's were brown so it's possible I suppose!

I have NO idea! Mine are green with a ring of gold. DH's are hazel/green. So we expected Sean's to be green or hazel, but his are a pretty slate blue color. We've got pretty much everything in our backgrounds, so it could be any color

My husband and I were just talking about this last night!!

Dh has brown eyes, mine are green w/some gold in them DS1 has hazel w/more brown in them, DS2 has brown and DD has blue! lol

I'm hoping this one has eyes more like mine.

Also DH has brown hair, I have natural dirty blonde hair. DS1 has dirty blonde hair, DS2 has light blonde hair and DD has dirty blonde/light brown. They all have hair like mine which is straight. Dh has natural curly/wavy hair and no one has got that yet.

I can't wait to see what this one will have! It's such a suprise.

SUPER simplified (because there are a few genes that determine it) to get blue eyes you need a double recessive -- one recessive gene from mom and one from dad. If you FIL has blue eyes and DH has brown, that means DH carries one recessive (because all his father has are recessive to give him). That gives you "about" a 50-50 chance at a blue-eyed baby because you can only pass along the recessive as a blue-eyed.

Again, there are other genetic factors, but there is one MAIN gene that MOSTLY controls these things.

I would like to have another blue eyed baby but my hazel eyes kids have gorgeous eyes. It mixes so many different colors. It's so strange I tan very easily and get really dark in the summer. My youngest is very dark even with constant spf 50. My middle child is snow white with blonde hair and blue eyes and burns super easily and my son is somewhere in the middle. It is weird how genetics work!

DH has dark brown eyes so I'm sure he/she will have the same.
