## What are the odds of two redheads having a redhead baby?

## What happens if two Gingers have a baby?

The gene for red hair is recessive, so a person needs two copies of that gene for it to show up or be expressed. That means even if both parents carry the gene, just one in four of their children are likely to turn out to be a redhead.
