    Anxiety is a common co-disorder of ADHD (usually caused by the ADHD).   If you have ADHD, but your husband does not, the chances are less the baby will have it.  If you both have it, the chances are higher.  There are plenty of families who have one child with ADHD and one without.   So, as far as I know, it is not possible to say for certain.  Just that your chances are better then parents without ADHD.   Hope this answers your question.
