Babies born in January are more likely to become rich and famous


January babies are one-of-a-kind

Are you due to give birth in January? If so your baby could be the next Katie Taylor or Saoirse Ronan.

Research has found that January babies have some unique and lucky qualities that mean they may be in for a very prosperous life!

According to a study from Australia, there were 33 percent more January babies in the Australian Football League than athletes born in other months. Published in Science Daily co-author Adrian Barnett from Queensland University explained his theory on why this is the case;

“If you were born in January, you have almost 12 months’ growth ahead of your classmates born late in the year.”

But becoming a sports star isn’t the only way January babies attract fame. Another study published in the Journal of Social Sciences found a disproportionate number of celebrities claim the Aquarius astrological sign—meaning they were born between January 20th and February 18th.

Not only that but babies born in January, have one of the luckiest birthstones.

Garnet gemstones are associated with peace, prosperity, and good health. Some say it even has the power to give the wearer eternal happiness, health, and wealth!

It seems that January babies are well and truly born under a lucky star.
