Chances of my son's hair being red?

My child's father has ginger hair, it does not run in his family. He was blonde at birth till about 3 years old. His mum told me his hair colour changed after they went abroad on holiday.. Can that happen? And what are the chances of my first child being red haired?

If it doesn't run in either side of the family the chances are pretty slim, my daughter was born with blonde hair which turned a red color and everyone loved it, it was a beautiful shade. I have Irish on my side and my husband has Irish on his side, making the chances slim but not impossible, it took a little while for her hair to change from red to an auburn. Hair can temporarily change color. My hair goes from black in the winter to dirty blonde in the summer.
