My now 2 1/2 year old was born with dark brown hair and brown eyes..he is now blonde hair with big blue eyes, dirty blonde hair, and has a nice olive color to his skin. People usually ask me if he's mixed with Chinese and when I tell them his dad is 100% Filipino they seem puzzled.. Just wondering if there are any others out there!!

I am a dark blonde with blue eyes and married to a nearly 100% Filipino gorgeous man - both his parents are Filipino born, and their parents ... but 3 of his 8 great grandparents came from Germany, Spain & Turkey, the other 5 grandparents were full Filipino. So we are talking many generations ago for a gene to have carried down the line. We have 2 children and a 3rd on the way.



Our 1st son was born with dark blond / light brown hair. blue eyes and fair Caucasian complexion, at around age 7 his eyes started turning green and his hair started getting darker. He is now 17 and has dark brown hair and vivid green eyes... he is always assumed to be full Caucasian and he gets a bit upset that no one will believe he is half Filipino, even when he shows them his Filipino passport :(



Our 2nd son was even more astonishing, he was born with beautiful auburn hair, blue eyes and VERY fair complexion, (even whiter than me and I'm pretty pale) He is still the same now at 3, though I suspect at around 7 his coloring will start darkening like his brothers and he will probably end up with brownish hair and green eyes when he is fully grown, though lighter than his brother.



Now I'm waiting to see how our 3rd child turns out, recessive genes can be quite surprising!

Following up on my 3rd baby who is now 11 months old. He was born with the typical dark blue eyes that most caucasians are born with and jet black hair and lots of it! His eyes over the past 11 months have darkened to green, now hazel, still with the dark blue he was born with around the outside of the iris, I imagine over time that dark blue will also disappear and his eyes darken even further. He has the darkest skin coloring of the 3 boys also, though not as dark as his father ... I'm very jealous of his skin, as its the perfect skin colour I would love for myself! His hair seems to be lightening as the 'baby hair' grows out but still very dark, dark brown and lots of beautiful curls. So we now have a rainbow family with every shade of hair colour possible in one family, we certainly get a lot of double takes when we are out en masse ;)

Congrats Amy on your newborn :)

My 3rd son, Xavier, is now 12 weeks old, my older post above describes my husbands ancestry (nearly full Filipino, I'm NZ European) and my other 2 children turned out very fair, both with blue eyes that have turned or are turning green. Our 3rd little boy seems he will be the closest in coloring to my husband. His hair is very dark, almost black ... his skin is very pale, however babies don't get their full skin coloring until they are around 1 year apparently, so hoping he will darken ... would be nice to have one olive skinned child in the family! His eyes right now are still dark blue in the light but when I take photos I can see flecks of dark green and hazel in them, so its still hard to tell what color they will end up yet ... again you can't really tell until they are at least 1 year old and sometimes even up to 3 years old.

I just had my son, he is 1/4 filipino and white, he has brown hair and eyes. My husband is half filipino and white with brown hair and brown eyes. I am white with brown hair and hazel/green eyes. I'm interested to see if my son's eyes change at all, right now he looks more like my husband, can't wait to see him grow up.
