Its a genetic lottery you never know what your going to get.  I'm white and my bf is black.  Our son is white with white hair only a few people can tell he is mixed.  We are curious to see how this one will look.  My bf kind of hopes he is light to so people don't look at them and think they have different dads.  I have a friend who's husband is Hispanic and one of their kids is dark dark and the other is white.  

I also saw an amazing move based off a true story called Skin.  Its about a white couple in Australia who had a daughter who looked black.  They did DNA test and it was absolute their child but one of them had aboriginal DNA from way back in their family they didn't know about.  

Genetics is crazy.  Also my bf family told me that babies tend to darken for  the first year my son is 1 1/2 and still really white as can be but still adorable.

Yea he has other two kids and there white so it will be exciting what my baby will look like. We both have thin hair but I was born with red hair Cu's my mom side of the family is irish

I forgot to add my bf family told me since they will continue to get darker to look behind their ears or at their balls to determine what color they will end up being.  In the case of my son both were right.

Yea I'm only light brown skin so I hope the baby just looks white like his dad... so he wont think walking away from my kid will b easy if the baby looks like him. Just hope its healthy and don't have his big gene Cu's I'm super skinny...
