Hello Jennifer!

Red hair inheritance is a common question here on Mad Sci. I looked around and 
just as you suspected, the genetics behind being a red-head is complex.  The 
general census is that both sides of the family need to have some history of 
red-hair. Below is a list of various comments on the genetics on red hair.  I 
hope they will help you to better understand your chances of having red-haired 
children... or grandchildren ;)

Thanks for your question!
