Congratulations to all the babies of the family! Not only have you probably had it significantly easier than your older siblings, you're also (scientifically proven) to be funnier.
A new study by YouGov has revealed that younger siblings are funnier, more laidback and also more likely to be favoured by their parents.
In fact, the study, which saw 1,800 British adults rate their personality traits, found that 46 per cent of them considered themselves the comedian of the family (compared to 36 per cent for firstborns.)
But it’s not all bad news for the older kids. While they might not be as humorous as their brothers and sisters, they tended to be the most successful, organised, confident and family-oriented too.
True to form, middle children were completely left out of the study. As a middle child, just saying das #rude.
We’re predicting these results will see much more teasing around the dinner table this Christmas!
