Can 2 brown eyed people have a blue eyed baby???? ~*~Emily~*~ Due February 15 (boy); 4 kids; Virginia 5795 posts

Just wondering. I tried looking it up but am still not really sure of the answer. I have a brown eyed parent and a blue-green eyed parent. I have blue-green eyes and my sister has brown eyes. So I know how that part works lol..... But I have a friend who has a blue eyed child and both parents are brown eyed, with brown eyed grandparents! Ughhhhh, wish I had paid more attention in Human Bio!

recessive genes-yes its possible, but not overly common.

its possible because brown eyes can have the gene Bb and when two little b's are together then its blue eyes

I looked it up on a site once with my husband .



My mom has blue eyes, my dad has brown and I have 2 sisters with blue eyes and 1 brother with brown along with myself.



My husband's side has all brown eyes.



The results, if I remember correctly, were that our little boy will have a 16% chance of having green eyes.

So how far back do the genes go??? The parents are both Brown and both sets of grandparents are brown. Thats 10 brown eyed people, ending up with a blue eyed baby. Im still a little confused as to how all the big B's could turn into little b little b. (bb)

yes it is possible. there are even known cases of people who have genes from many many generations ago come popping up, like a black couple having a white baby (either of the parents could have white in their geneology), or a white couple having a baby that looked asian because one of the parents had asian somewhere in their genes.



my best friend did a study on it for college.

My brother in law and sister in law both have brown eyes and their son has the brightest blue eyes and blond hair. It's definitely possible, but not that common.
