Having a baby is a great way to kick off the summer, and the reasons why June babies are badasses are sure to get you pumped, no matter when in the sunny month you're due. Yes, you'll be relieved not to have to go through the rest of the long, hot summer heavily pregnant, but there's more to it than that. Increasingly, according to TIME Magazine, science is showing that the season of your birth has long-term impacts on your health, and even on your personality. For instance, as Reader's Digest reported, June babies are statistically less likely to suffer from seasonal affective disorder (SAD) — and strangely enough, more likely to be tall, perhaps because they're born into all that healthy sunshine.
June baby badasses are also more likely to throw amazing birthday parties that kick off the summer — a fact not based on science, but just on common sense. For some reason, I also associate June borns with Frappuccinos, glittering swimming pools, and a sunny disposition (actually, that one does have a basis in science, according to a European study on optimism, reported by CafeMom). And when it comes to astrology, June babies are killing it with some of the best personality traits in the zodiac. Happy birthday, baby Junes.
