Im not sure what you mean by "brown" genetics. But dark eyes and hair is a dominate trait in both males and females. Light hair and blue eyes is recessive. If theres a chance he carries blue eyes/blonde hair in his genes there is a chance for your baby to have those traits. But it sounds like you both carry the brown eyes/dark hair traits so most likely that is what it will be :)

According to genetics, brown is a dominant trait in eye color while green and blue are recessives. Complexion, eye color, hair etc are not determined by one gene but a group of many. Sometimes babies adopt either parents while others make a completely unique combination... and some manage to change between mom, dad and something combined or new throughout the course of their lives. So its not easy to determine who the child will go on just so simply.

Hope this answers your question.
