Although very rare in Asians, there is a brown eye gene that is incompletely dominant when combined with another recessive gene. You see it occasionally in African Americans that have green eyes, it is actually a pale hazel.
If you are pure Filipina and have never encountered a light eyed relative, I'd say you can count on some beautiful dark brown eyes. Congratulations!

It doesn't matter. A baby need a blue eye gene from BOTH parents to have blue eyes.

It depends if anyone in your family has blue eyes and the genetics you have inherited. If there is noone with blue eyes in YOUR immediate family (i.e. parents or grandparents) then chances are you are not carrying a blue eyed gene and your baby will not have blue eyes, as blue eyes are recessive.

If you have the recessive blue eyed gene then there's a 1 in 4 chance but if you are Filipina I very much doubt it.

Genes are funny. Usually the most dominant gene (brown eyes) will come out. You never know though, it is possible your baby will have blue eyes.
