Can a baby have blue eyes if the parents don t?

Can a brown eyed parent have a blue eyed child?

Brown (and sometimes green) is considered dominant. So a brown-eyed person may carry both a brown version and a non-brown version of the gene, and either copy may be passed to his children. Two brown-eyed parents (if both are heterozygous) can have a blue-eyed baby.

Can a baby be born with different eye color than parents?

What color eyes will my child have? There’s no guarantee when it comes to your offspring’s eye color. While a baby inherits half of their eye color genetics from one parent and half from the other parent, the way that the genes interact also plays a role in determining eye color.

Can brown and blue eyes make blue?

Because brown (B) is dominant over blue (b). Two parents who are Bb and so have brown eyes each have a 50% chance of passing a b to their child. If they both do, that child would be bb and have blue eyes. This is also where your question comes from of course.
