Not necessarily because the egg still has a 1/8192 chance of being shiny. The only thing the parents effect in the offspring are the IVs, stats it is born with, and the type of pokemon it is.

What charizard said is true, breeding shiny Pokemon is just like breeding regular Pokemon, the shiny chance never changes from 1/8192. However, if one of the parent pokemon is originally from a foreign game, the chance of shininess in the baby newly hatched pokemon is drastically increased, this is known as the mesuda method.
