There is no way anyone on here can tell you that. Some biracial children turn as dark as if they had no 'white' in them and others LOOK white... and many others fall somewhere in between.

Your baby's skin will be whatever color HIS skin is supposed to be.

Are you asking when your baby will get darker?

He may never get darker. He's a biracial baby, and will always show the traits of both.

Ah...genes are funny things, or so I learned in biology class...dominant vs recessive, the dominant trait usually appears. However, the regressive trait has been known to rear it's head. (thus the blonde haired blue eyed baby with brown haired, dark eyed parents)

Like Dove said, your baby will be whatever color he's supposed to be. He could be dark like his daddy, he could be light like his momma, or he could be a beautiful in between ;-)

I just hope it is curiousity, and you aren't catching grief because he's not the right "color"... ;-)

And you won't know until he's grown. Not really sure what difference it makes other than random curiosity though....

I knew a biracial couple growing up that had two kids. The boy had the exact same coloring as the mother and the girl had the exact same coloring as the father. If just the boy and father or just the girl and mother were together.... you would've had NO idea they were related.
