Valentine’s Day is one of the most romantic days of the year. A day when couples are feeling close and connected. When new potential lovers go on that first date. And when parents splurge on a babysitter to go have some alone time. And even though it’s a weeknight this year, we can still expect some…”cuddling” to ensue come nightfall.

With all this chocolate-covered lovin’ going on, we can also expect an uptick of births happening around the world in about nine months. But how many Valentine’s Day babies can we expect here in Nevada? Betway did some analysis of birthrates in the United States to get us that answer.

Some interesting things that were found was that Utah is getting busier than any other state. They also topped Betway’s list of the most “Super Bowl Babies” and have some of the highest birth rates all year round. I think it’s safe to say that Utah people are a frisky bunch. And, since my guy is from Utah, I can confirm this statistic.

But what about Nevada? Where do we land on the list of the most Valentine’s Day babies? A representative from Collective3 shared some interesting facts about that. Nevada ranks 25th on the list of the most Valentine’s Day babies in the United States. With nearly 3,000 babies typically being born in November.

But that’s not exactly proof that Nevada isn’t as an amorous a bunch around Valentine’s Day as other states. Statistics from Collective3 also showed a 40% increase in Las Vegas of people googling information about the Plan B pill. So maybe we’re just as frisky, only more cautious?

So with Nevada at number 25 on the list, we were curious as to what other states are out conceiving us. Here are the top 10 states for births related to Valentine’s Day. The statistics, shared by a representative of Collective3, took into account the number of births per month as well as the state’s average population.- Wendy Rush
