I'm Nigerian British. Dh is Italian/Serbian/Irish/polish in equal measures. He is a fab stepdad to our 2 boys from my first marriage to a Nigerian; he gets lots of puzzled looks when they're out and about. Our Dd is mixed and I'm slowly learning how to manage her crazy curly hair. Any tips much appreciated!

I'm half Swedish, quarter Norwegian, quarter Finnish (but all family came from around Arctic Circle, so North in all the countries, and close to the borders in each of them).

DH is strictly speaking American, but ethnically is half Guernsey French, quarter Hawaiian native, quarter Chinese. He just lived in the USA.

DC are therefore what I'd say is, half Scandinavian heritage, quarter Guernsey, and an eighth Hawaiian native, eighth Chinese. Interesting mix, but they look pure Scandinavian (like me!) with blonde hair, blue eyes etc;

My family's not exactly exotic, white British, Scottish and Irish. I do remember my Irish great granny having very dark eyes and olive skin, she had a Romany look to her. My husbands family are "true blue" which I'm not believing at all, I'm sure if they traced back far enough they'd find something exciting. Be ace if that Who Do You Think You Are? Program featured just everyday non sleb types. I'm sure everyones ancestors would be an interesting story.

I am white Irish (*bootsycollins*, my granny and her sisters also had that Romany look, jet black hair and olive skn and green eyes...).

DH is black British, Jamaican/Guyanese background, quite fair skinned as a lot of mix the Guyanese side if Afrcan, Indian and Portuguese.

Our Kids are gorgeous but quite different in looks - one has thick, wavy black hair, olive skin and dark eyes and is often mistaken for Turkish or South American, the other has very African features but completely white skin, hazel eyes and a blonde afro. Amazing what mixtures can occur!

I am 3/4 White British and 1/4 Black Caribbean from my mum's side. Polish ancestry on my dad's side.

DP is Persian and DS is a mini version of him. The same dark skin and big beautiful brown eyes.

We are mixed - my ds is lovel in my eyes not because he's very mixed, because he#s my ds and I'm blinded by love for him.

I hate this idea that kids are beautiful because they are 'mixed'. they are are not. The day I laughted loudest when my dh's aunt (other country) proclaimed my ds was beautiful because he's so called 'mixed' . she'd never met a 'mixed' before and was trying to be very multicultural.

I laughed at her.

All kids are beautiful. Mine more in my eyes and nothing to do with his very mixed background (boring) only because he just exists and is lovely.

Im half English , half Irish. Ive ended up looking quite dark with brown eyes and hair. Same colouring as Andrea Corr or Colin Farrell.

Dd's dad is Albanian and similar colouring to me but with skin that tans much more easily.

Dd has blonde hair and grey eyes, with skin that tans very quickly. Ive got lots of comments on what a nice skin colour she has. I imagine her hair will go darker as she grows up. A lot of Albanian children are blond up till bout 6 then they go brown.

My husband is half Jamaican, half Trinidadian but born in Britain and I'm white British.
We have one daughter who is lighter than me (I'm pale with red hair and blue eyes) the other daughter is almost as dark as my husband. We do get some stares but who cares, our family is truly beautiful!

You don't need to be mixed to be beautiful.
