When I think about having kids, I never wonder about what color eyes they might have or if they might be redheads because, well, my entire family is full of people with brown-eyed, brown-haired people. Woo. Then years of using the Punnett square told me one thing: “All of your kids will have dark features. Live it with, bro.” How can you argue with science?
Then I learned that the Punnett square isn’t all that and a bag of chips (source). *fist pump* Coupling that with this great infographic, I came to realize there’s hope for some diversity.
The genes your kids will inherit
My genes? Strong. Real strong.
This is what their eye color might be
Hope for blue-eyed babies goes on.
The strong genes dominate
But genes can’t always be predicted with certainty
Don’t forget one thing, though: single genes don’t determine most traits. Something like your skin color is determined by over 100 genes. In the end, I’ll probably still have brown-haired, brown-eyed babies, but a man can dream!
