I am having a baby girl in about a month, her daddy is hispanic and I am white. I would love for her to be darker with a beautiful complexion. I was wondering if there is a greater percentage of her having darker skin, like in most cases is the father's genes going to be more dominate?

When it comes to skin coloring and the dad is dark 100% that will be dominate although maybe not as dark as the dad. I have two kids both half filipino and they are between my color and hubbys although they take some of my facial features.

Hey my cousin had a baby 4 days ago. Shes white and her boyfriend is hispanic. So far their baby looks exactly like a white baby boy. But I was always told it takes a few weeks before they get their complete color.

heheh, but then again jen that can change over time as you did. My baby will be half black and white . The father is pretty dark jamaican..I hope it has a nice caramel color but I wouldn't care even if it was completey dark...But I dont want it completely white either. I want my child to be able to identify with his dad...I dont know if you get my point lol...Ok, whatever as long as he/she is healthy!

My baby is half white, half hispanic. She was born sort of dark, but she has lightened up quite a bit. Who knows what her future holds. I'm just about as pale as they come. Her daddy isn't overly dark, but he's definately not light skinned either. Tho she does have his dark hair and dark eyes. Her eyes went from bluish/gray to brown on a daily basis, then finally they decided to stay brown. Her hair was born almost black, but that has gotten lighter as well. Here is a pic if you want an idea.....
