New parents can't get enough of staring into those baby blues. Blonde hair and blue eyes are the epitomai of perfection for some new parents in the US. While mom and dad are busy looking into those beautiful new eyes, they're probably completely unaware of the fascinating facts that their baby's eye color tells them. It's hard to imagine that eye color has to do with anything, but there are some interesting facts and tendencies that babies with blue eyes have. There seem to be some genetic factors that connect blue eyes with certain personality traits, diseases, ancestry, and instincts. In fact, the levels of melanin in a new baby's body can affect everything from skin cancer risk to reaction times, of all things.

These facts about babies born with blue eyes are simply fascinating and point to an intricate interconnection among genes that affect both eye color and countless other traits. A baby's eye color harbors great clues about who they'll be as a person later in life.

After reading this, when mom gazes into her baby's eyes, she will see something different altogether! I can't help but wonder if Jared Leto, Zac Efron, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Patrick Dempsey, and Elijah Wood's moms all saw the same things in their baby blues as we do!

THEY ARE MORE PRONE TO DIABETES

   It seems that the entire gene package that brings blue eyes also brings other factors, one of those being an increased risk of diabetes. Your blue-eyed baby is 12% more likely to develop Type 1 than babies with other eye colors. Other genes associated with blue eyes seem to bear some kind of connection to diabetes. Being a Caucasian with blue eyes and fair skin, specifically in a Mediterranean region with a specific amount of yearly sun exposure, seems to be linked to a prevalence in Type 1 diabetes. Perhaps it has more to do with nurture than nature in the different ways that Caucasians tend to eat, manufacture food, and perform activities that lead to the prevalence of the disease. It's hard to say. But the trend is definitely more significant among pale, blue-eyed babies.

PEOPLE WILL FIND THEM MORE ATTRACTIVE

It might sound strange, but studies have shown that blue-eyed men are significantly more attracted to women with blue eyes than any other eye color. So your blue-eyed baby might be attractive to or attracted to a blue-eyed mate in the future. Since eye color is one of the only visible indicators of personality, perhaps there's a primitive mechanism in blue-eyed men that makes blue-eyed women so much more attractive. Primitive men would've wanted their progeny to carry on their traits with even more blue-eyed babies. Blue eyes would also have been a simple and reliable way for primitive men to ensure the certainty of their baby's paternity. If both parents had blue eyes, then their babies would have had blue eyes too. Don't be surprised if your little blue-eyed boy falls for a pretty little blue-eyed girl someday!

SLOWER REFLEXES

A 1987 study of motor reflexes found that those with blue eyes tend to have slower reaction times and reflexes. The study focused on reaction times during athletic activities that require agility and quickness like baseball, basketball, and boxing. Brown-eyed people are better able to process speed than their blue-eyed counterparts, which makes them better at hitting targets in activities like archery and basketball. Melanin seems to play a key role in insulating electrical connections in the brain. This seems to make the brain of a brown-eyed person more sensitive and fast-thinking. Brown-eyed people tend to be able to think faster and perform better under time pressure whereas blue-eyed people do better with time. That's not to say that with practice and conditioning, your blue-eyed baby can't go on to play professional sports like other blue-eyed greats! Those baby blues look great on Jesús Navas González.

LESS AGREEABLE

Although it may seem subjective to rate a person on "agreeableness," scientists have found that those with blue eyes tend to rate less for agreeable traits like friendliness, compassion, and empathy. And other people perceive them as weaker, shyer, more competitive and less trustworthy than they really are. It may be that because those with blue eyes tend to be much more shy that they come off as aloof to others. And we know that they aren't weaker because we already talked about how they have a higher pain tolerance.

It's hard to tell why this happens, but there seems to be a relationship between the genes that create our babies' eye colors and their frontal lobes, where many of their personality traits are harbored.

STRATEGIC THINKER

Your blue-eyed baby may come genetically wired to be a more strategic thinker. For some reason, there's a link between people with blue eyes and strategic thinking, while brown-eyed people demonstrate better reaction times. One has stronger long-term thinking while the other performs better with short-term reactions. It is also thought to be true that the more melanin a person has, the quicker their brain reacts due to the way melanin insulates brain cell connections.


In the study, people with blue eyes performed better at activities that required more long-term planning for activities that are performed slowly over time like golf and running. They're able to pace themselves and structure their time better. Their darker-eyed counterparts had better reaction times in immediate circumstances, making them excel at activities like football and rugby. Scientists aren't sure what the link between eye color and strategic thinking is, but let's just hope your blue-eyed baby comes packaged with a brilliant little mind like other blue-eyed brains such as Stephen Hawking.
