Study Claims Babies Born In January And February Are Most Likely To Be Rich And Famous

Study Claims Babies Born In January And February Are Most Likely To Be Rich And Famous

Babies born at the start of the year might seem tough because we're usually skint around then.

But there might be a silver lining to this because a study has found people born in the first two months of the year are more likely to be rich and famous than their counterparts.

The Journal of Social Sciences had a look at when the biggest celebrities, politicians and scientists were born and, surprise, surprise, it seems a lot are popped out in January and February. If we're being specific here, the big ones have birthdays between January 20 and February 18.

While Aquariuses are known for being unpredictable and inefficient, at least you'll have the coin and stardom to rely on.

Just look at the rich and famous alumni that you could join if you reach your full potential: Ronda Rousey, Harry Styles, Jennifer Anniston, Oprah and Cristiano Ronaldo.

But if you're thinking that study is bollocks then you might be interested in another by the UK Office of National Statistics, which found that babies born at the start of the year went into some decent careers.

January babies are most likely to become a GP or a debt collector while those who come into the world a month later have a high rate of becoming an artist. While that might be a hard graft, it can pay off big time.

The Mirror adds that if you need a bit more convincing on when to have a kid, there was a study that collected 10 years of data from some of the biggest companies in the world. Interestingly, it found that 10 percent of the top CEOs were born in January.

If you're wondering where you might pick up your intelligence from, details have emerged that it could be a maternal influence.

Study Claims People Named John And Kate Most Likely To Be Famous

According to research, the cleverness of a child is determined by the mother's genes - the X chromosome is responsible for intelligence and women carry two of these. Men only carry one, alongside a Y chromosome.

This information has actually been around for a while - back in 1984 researchers at the University of Cambridge studied both the co-evolution of the brain and genomic conditioning, which is when the conclusion was first reached that maternal genes influenced the transfer of intelligence.

During the research, scientists used genetically modified mice to test different theories - a complex process which, you'll be shocked to learn, involved a lot of trial and error (and a fair few deceased lab mice along the way).

However, when they finally got the process right, they were able to produce mice with more maternal or paternal genes.

Interestingly, those mice that extra doses of maternal genes actually developed a bigger brain and head. Conversely, the mice that were dosed with extra paternal genes developed bigger bodies but smaller heads.
