I need help with this question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A woman gives birth to a son. Two years later, she gives birth to another son. What is the probability that her third child will be a girl? Explain your reasoning.

I think it is 50% chance that it will be a girl because when you use the punnet square the outcome of the combination is 50%. I'm not sure if this is correct.
