At the end of the day we are all inheriting genes from 2 different people - 50% mum & 50% dad. When we go on to have our own children we can pass on either set to our children just as your partner can so in theory there are 4 different combination possiblities for your children to inherit from you (your mum/OH mum, your mum/OH dad, your dad/OH dad, your dad/OH mum) so whilst your children may look similar in some ways they will also likely have differences.
My two girls are very much alike in appearance but my nieces & nephews aren't all likewise & even my sister & I have our differing appearances (I take after my dad whilst she takes after my mum).
As long as baby is happy & healthy that is what matters. The world is full of wonderous variety & beauty comes in many shades, shapes & sizes. Enjoy your family. Best wishes.

Dont let anyone get you down about issues such as these, my dd will be 4 in june, her dad is black african and very dark in skin tone and I am white, when she was first born she had straight light brown hair and completely white skin and didnt show any sign of colour in her skin untilshe was about 9 months old. I also received lots of comments about how light she was and how she didnt even look like she was his child which I obviously found very upsetting, she is now much darker and is clearly mixed race but I loved her regardless and everyone else can do one! Dont let their negative comments get you down, skin tone is irrelevant!
