It'll be interesting to see!
I'm a red head - the ginger version, not flaming red. Mum had a baby when she was a teenager (died from sids though) but she was a ginger red head as well. Then mum had my Brother, who has dark brown hair and tanned olive skin. Then she had me.
Are you or your husband a reddie?

My DP is a ginger, not flaming, he looks more like dark sandy blonde/light brunette, til he goes in the sun or grows a beard haha!
Im a light brunette, was blonde until a teenager...
Im waiting to see if this child comes out with a tinge of ginge!

XH is a redhead. I am blonde
DD1 strawberry blonde
DD3 dark blonde going brown
little ones father has brown hair
DD6 started blonde, but has darkened considerably by 5yo so expect her to go brown
DD7 blonde - she is only 3yo so lets see if she keeps it or it darkens.

I think it's 1 in 4 as it's a recessive gene? Sorry, have forgotten year 10 biology, someone correct me if I'm wrong

My grandmother was flaming red. My mum had 6 children 2 of whom are flaming red and 1 was honey blonde...the rest of us were brunettes and ash blondes.
So it's any man's guess really. Will be interesting to see though

It's irrelevant if any of your children are redheads as each child has a 1 in 4 chance. Both parents must have the gene before a child can be born with red hair. A child or indeed parent may go on to have red headed children it all depends on whether or not their partner also have the gene.
Hope that makes sense
