In my search for answers on this topic I found a eye color predictor. Click here to enter, the mother's and father's eye color and eye color genes and the calculator will predict the eye color of the child or children. This predicted that out of 3 children for me and my husband, all three would have brown eyes. For the next nine months, I will be observing my baby to see if the eye color predictor was right.
Brown is the most common eye color worldwide.
Green is the most rare.
Blue is the most common eye color in Caucasians.
Less than 3 percent of the worlds population has red hair and of those only about 3 percent have brown eyes. ( I am married to one of these rare specimen)
Conclusion:Apparently green eyes are caused by a gene mutation and are completely complicated to explain. I am excited to watch to see if my baby will end up with brown, blue or somewhere in between eye color. This is all very interesting to me. Genetics is a complicated process where "normal rules apply, unless they don't".
