Have you ever wondered what the most popular birthday date is? Or how many people you share your birthday with?

September is a busy month for birthdays

September is a busy month for birthdays

Research has shown that September is the most popular month for birthdays, with September 9th being the specific day.

In fact, 9 out of the first ten most popular birthdays fall in the month of February.

And the least popular? Christmas day.

Bizarrely, December 25 is actually less popular than February 29th - a day that only comes around once every 4 years.

Sitting right in the middle is October 28.

So, are there any notable celebs that were born on any of these dates?

September 9

Since it’s the most popular birthday of the year, you’d expect lots of famous faces to celebrate becoming a year older on this day.

And, the theory kind of fits.

There’s a wealth of A-listers born on this day, including Adam Sandler, Michael Buble, Hugh Grant, Colonel Sanders and Otis Redding.

October 28

Bill Gates, Caitlyn Jenner, Julia Roberts, Frank Ocean and Matt Smith all share the birthday of October 28. This is the birthday that sits smack bang in the middle of the popularity list.

February 29

As you can probably imagine, there aren’t so many recognisable names born on the 29th February, due to it only coming around once every four years. But, apparently not as unpopular as Christmas day - though rapper Ja Rule was born on February 29, making his age a potentially tricky topic!

December 25

To say that this is the  least popular birthday, there are a surprising amount of recognisable celebrities that were born on this day. Dido, Chris Kamara, Alastair Cook, Armin Van Buuren, Annie Lennox and Justin Trudeau.
