If you were both blue eyed blondes and she had brown eyes and hair, you'd have something to worry about. Manifesting recessive traits is nothing.

Re: Daughter blonde hair/blue eyes, both parents brown hair/brown eyes
I took genetics in college and I realize that there are recessive genes, but no one in either of our families has blonde hair and no one has blue eyes.

I did my DNA testing to make sure that she was mine, and it came up with 99.98%. I'm interested in what may cause this because recessive genes can't pass that many generations. How can this be?

Editing because our family trees on both sides all the way to our great grandparents had brown hair and brown eyes. My wife was a cheater during our marriage, that's why I did the testing.

Recessive genes come out, yes, but how many generations of brown haired and brown eyes people does it take to make a blonde haired blue eyed little girl?
 Quoting: Rigel


OP

sorry, to tell you , it happens a lot in genetics.

I have strawberry blonde hair and green eyes > the only one in my entire family to have this combination

My parents both have brown hair and brown eyes.

My older brother was born with fire engine red hair but now, as an adult, it is light brown.

Hey Rigel

Great that you have a lovely little daughter, but sorry about your ex wife and her unfaithful ways.

I despair of how folks are so sure about things they know so little about, here's something for those here who're so certain that 2 brown eyed/hair parents can;t have a blond, blue eyed child:

[link to www.thesun.co.uk]

[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

[link to www.telegraph.co.uk]

It's obviously quite rare, but it happens. Seems like it's due to a throwback to a far back generation and even the experts aren't certain sure about how some mutations and mixes happen.

How many people actually know for sure what all their EIGHT great grandparents looked like?

How many people even know all their 8 great grandparents' names even!

You've got a positive match. Your daughter's yours. And you love each other and that's what really matters. ;-)

Ok listen don't look at relatives grown look at baby pictures. I'm sure your parents or grandparents had blonde hair and blue eyes. My dad had brown hair as long as I've known him but born with blonde hair. Something with my husband couldn't pick him out of early family photo because he had blonde hair. My 4 children born with blonde hair by teenage years all were brunettes. Chill dad it fine.

 Quoting: Rigel


What's the confusion? Blonde/blue and other recessive traits can pass unseen forever.

It doesn't get expressed but it's there. How do you think genetic diseases like cystic fibrosis get passed along? Ask someone whose child has that horrible disease if anyone in their family had it? You'll learn that in over 90% of the cases, they can't find anyone in their family who had it.

Re: Daughter blonde hair/blue eyes, both parents brown hair/brown eyes
I swore I was adopted because I'm the only one in the family with blond hair and blue eyes (I'm not). I married a dark-haired man who is part Native American, yet our daughter has blond hair and blue eyes. She married a man with dark hair and brown eyes, yet their child is also blond/blue. I've seen this with others families as well. Maybe the genetics we were taught were not always correct about dominant and recessive traits?

Re: Daughter blonde hair/blue eyes, both parents brown hair/brown eyes
Didn't add the fact that she cheated on me several times during our marriage. I would not have taken the test otherwise. We're divorced because of her inability to control her sexual urges with other men.

So, to continue, any explanation?
 Quoting: Rigel


two brown eyed parents with recessive genes for light eyes have 25% chance of light eyed kid per child

if you have no recessive gene for light colored eyes, then your DNA test would have returned a 0% match (impossible)

99.98% is a lot stronger than you think because there are lots and lots of genes that would imply 0% chance the kid was yours

You may be the child's father, but do you really know who your father or grandfather are?

Her hair could still darken. Most of the children in my family had blonde hair as babies. But we all have dark hair now. There are even tribes in Africa where the children are born with blonde hair and it switches to black before puberty.

Just enjoy your blonde headed baby girl and don't worry about it.

The same happened in my family, everybody is dark haired and brown eyes, my sister was born with blond hair and the bluest eyes. By age six the hair color changed to dark as the rest of us and the eye color followed shortly after that.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1313288


I just explained it. All the way to great grandparents. I know about genes and how could recessive genes pass 3 generations when everyone is brown eyed/haired?
 Quoting: Rigel


Suppose it was these genes:

HH Brown hair
Hh Brown hair
hh blonde hair

EE brown eyes
Ee Brown eyes
ee blue eyes

So you can clearly have HhEe x HhEe makes HHEE, HhEe, or hhee, or some other combination. Therefore it is possible to have a line of brown hair brown eye (HhEe) people who have a blond haired blue eyed child (hhee)

Some friends of ours, have 8 children. The mom and dad are 100% black as they thought they were. BUT 2 of their natural born kids have unusual eyes. 1 boy has bright green eyes and the other boy has blue eyes. It turns out that many, many generations ago, an Irishman married into the family and spread his genetics on the mom's side and on the dad's side, there was some slavery with a child that was a product of the slave owner/master and one of his slave girls. SO-a couple hunded years later or more, BINGO,.... a black family produced a blue eyed and green eyed baby boys.

Fire red hair is the trait that is recessive in our family.

It was the last child my grandma had, the last child one of my aunts had and the last child my brother had and he was married to a Japanese woman.

She is Japanese and has fire red hair, how awesome is that!

Genetics is a new science.Calling part of our DNA "junk " is an expression of this.We have a lot to learn still.

It is the difference between simple sums and calculus .They are at the simple sum stage.

It sounds as though the little one is yours ,but why not take the leap and just love her and be a good father anyway?



My four children

first born dark hair ,fell out ,then hair regrew was silver and gold ,now medium dark - blue eyes now grey blue

second born blond white hair darkened with time now dark haired-blue eyes now grey blue

third born long dark hair still dark with red tones -dark brown eyes

fourth born- blond hair now blondy brown-brown eyes

Same mother brown hair -hazel eyes and father.blondy brown-blue hazel eyes.

All I can say is mother nature is wonderful.

 Quoting: Rigel


For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.

My substance was not hid from thee." The substantial part of my being was before thine all-seeing eye; the bones which make my frame were put together by thine hand. The essential materials of my being before they were arranged were all within the range of thine eye. I was hidden from all human knowledge, but not from thee: thou hast ever been intimately acquainted with me. "When I was made in secret." Most chastely and beautifully is here described the formation of our being before the time of our birth. A great artist will often labour alone in his studio, and not suffer his work to be seen until it is finished; even so did the Lord fashion us where no eye beheld us, and the veil was not lifted till every member was complete. Much of the formation of our inner man still proceeds in secret; hence the more of solitude the better for us. The true church also is being fashioned in secret, so that none may cry, "Lo, here!" or "Lo, there!" as if that which is visible could ever be identical with the invisibly growing body of Christ. "And curiously wrought it in the lowest parts of the earth." "Embroidered with great skill," is an accurate poetical description of the creation of veins, sinews, muscles, nerves, etc. What tapestry can equal the human fabric? This work is wrought as much in private as if it had been accomplished in the grave, or in the darkness of the abyss. The expressions are poetical, beautifully veiling, though not absolutely concealing, the real meaning. God's intimate knowledge of us from the beginning, and even before it, is here most charmingly set forth. Cannot he who made us thus wondrously when we were not, still carry on his work of power till he has perfected us, though we feel unable to aid in the process.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13460690


In advanced industrial countries prenatal testing in order to
detect fetal abnormalities has become routine. The amount
of genetic information that has become available through
such testing has expanded enormously within the past few
years. There are a number of ways of carrying out these
tests, yet for each of them there is a danger of inaccurate
results, and for some of them there is the additional hazard
of injury to the fetus. Pregnant women and their partners
are often unprepared for the news that they are carrying a
“defective” fetus. An abortion agreed to in haste and under
coercive pressure, can have devastating consequences, not
only for the parents, but for other children. Is enough being
done to inform women about the implications of prenatal
testing, and to provide them with alternative choices to
abortion when tests prove positive?
