Baby's blood type

I have a quick question about blood type. Is it possible for a baby to have blood type AB with both parents of blood type B?

    Do you need to see a GP quickly?


    Would you like to speak with a doctor by video or phone at a time that suits you?

    Our Doctor@Hand service, delivered by Doctor Care Anywhere, offers a doctor appointment by video or phone at a time that suits you.

The answer

For a child to have blood type AB, one parent would have to be blood type A and the other parent be blood type B.
