June is a huge month of celebration for our family. The end of the school year, summer officially starts, Father’s Day and birthdays! Seriously, a lot of birthdays! My hubby has a June birthday, our youngest is a June baby, and two of my brother-in-law’s have June birthdays. Let’s just say, we have a decent amount of cake in this house during the month of June! And with June also being National Give a Bunch of Balloons Month and National Candy Month, it’s a great time to have a baby and celebrate!
June babies not only share a birthday month with Dad’s special day, but they also share it with some pretty awesome celebrities, too! Marilyn Monroe, Angelina Jolie, Courtney Cox, Paul McCartney, Chris Evans, Prince Phillip, Chris Pratt, Nicole Kidman, and Tom Holland all celebrate their birthdays during the month of June. So, if you’re keeping track, Captain America, Starlord, AND Spiderman were all born in June. Maybe June babies are most likely to become superheroes?! Interesting…
So, if you have a child who was born in June, or you’re expecting a baby this month, here are 6 awesome facts about babies born in June!
They’re more likely to be tall
According to a British Study, you could literally be looking up to your June baby! Those born in June are more likely to be bigger and grow into tall adults. It’s speculated that, due to all the extra sunshine when they’re born, summer babies get more vitamin D which makes them more likely to be tall! Who knew?!
They could be a Nobel Prize winner
Your little June baby might end up being a genius! An analysis of Nobel Laureates found that a surprisingly high number of Nobel Prize winners were born in June. I mean, there’s no guarantee obviously, but simply being born in June gives them a higher chance of accomplishing great things!
They’re a twin or a crab
Babies born in June fall under two pretty cool star signs – Gemini or Cancer. Those born before June 20th fall under Gemini and are said to be highly intelligent, quick-witted, and indecisive. (With two Geminis in the house, I can definitely back up the indecisive part!) Those born after the 20th fall under the Cancer sign and are known for being loyal and loving.
They get 3 birthstones
Most of us only get one birthstone. June babies however, have THREE birthstones! According to the American Gem Society, June birthstones include the pearl, alexandrite, or moonstone. So, those born in June have options! Which is awesome, especially if your June baby is one of those indecisive Gemini’s we just talked about!
They aren’t S.A.D.
If you’re not familiar, SAD stands for Seasonal Affective Disorder. It’s a disorder many people experience during the long, cold winter months. However, an article published in Nature Neuroscience found that babies born in June (and July & August) are less likely to develop SAD, which means they’re happier than most during those dreaded winter months!
They have classic birth flowers
Did you know that every month has a birthstone AND a birth flower? I sure didn’t. In fact, I couldn’t even tell you what my birth month’s flower is. June, however, is represented by TWO classic flowers: the rose and honeysuckle. Roses signify romance, while honeysuckle stands for happiness. Can’t go wrong with either of those, right?
As I said, June is pretty big month for celebrations in our house. I’m a fan of June because we have so many things to celebrate on a personal level, but also because summer begins, school ends and our kids look forward to both of those things! Happy kids for the win, am I right?
