Dear Baby

This all depends on whether the dads eye colour is due to dominant or recessive conditions. If light eye colour is a dominant trait in your family, but dark eye colour is dominant trait in your partners family than it is more likely that the babies eyes will be dark coloured or brown. In the instance where there is a recessive trait then the possiblity is one in four (i.e 25% chance of blue eyes.)
