What is the likelihood of having a blue-eyed baby with blond hair if the mother and father both have blue eyes with brown hair that was blond from birth-6 years old?

blue eyes very likely, blond hair, not lucky- will turn out brown as brown hair is the dominant allele in a brown-blond pair of alleles (see genetics, hair color, wikipedia). Hi, no I don't agree because I have brown hair now but I was properly blond til I was 6 years old. Both my parents had brown hair. I am English (and by that I mean properly English - not muslim) and like 90% of ethnically English people, have blond hair when young that darkens with age. This is due to the English race being Germanic and related to the Germans, Danes, Norwegians etc. In the US, there are lots of people with either English or German ancestry - so much the same story there too. I do not know about English race, ancestors and genetic traits, nor the genetic background of the darkening blond hair, however if both parents have brown hair, it means that they carry at least one dominant gene that expresses brown hair. Still, if both parent have also one recessive allele for blond hair, theoretically there is a 25% chance that their children could be blond haired, and of course with blue eyes.
