If you are trying to determine paternity of a child, you will not like the answer. First off blood type is not a good way to determine paternity as there are several combinations that can result. Obviously if paternity is a question the 2 known factors will be the mother's blood type and the child's blood type. If the mother is type A and the child is type O -- the father can be anyone with a blood type of A, B, or O.. the only blood type the father cannot be is AB (unless of mutation), which doesnt help much, considering that is the rarest blood type --- thus, to determine paternity through blood type.. the father can be anyone of about 98.2% of the male population. So to answer your question... yes, that combination is very possible
