Having a sister is good for your mental health and helps you live longer according to science, but that’s not all. It turns out that not only her, but also her baby, affects your life in numerous positive ways.

When your sister has a baby, a new beautiful chapter begins in your life too. Bright Side has gathered 6 of these changes and listed them for you.

1. You get a new best friend.

Growing up, your sister was your best friend, but then life happened and you both got busy with your own things. When you become an aunt, you find a new best friend in your niece or nephew, and you get a new partner to go on adventures with.

2. Your creativity gets a chance to shine.

Everything you have learned in your life so far, you can pass down to the newest member of your family. This curious baby will ask you a hundred questions every day and you’ll find a creative way to answer them all.

3. You become more responsible.

When your sister gives birth, she’s not the only one who becomes more responsible. You mature too and start seeing the world in a different light.

4. You get closer to your family.

Spending time with your niece or nephew takes you back and you are reminded of your childhood memories. Waves of nostalgia hit you and you become closer to not only your sister, but also your parents.

5. You feel like you can achieve anything.

For the little angel in your family, you become the cool aunt, the knight in shining armor. The child puts all their trust in you and makes you feel so loved, that you start believing in yourself again.

6. You understand the meaning of unconditional love.

In a very, very short period of time, the baby becomes a huge part of your life and a priority. You hold them above all others and cancel plans to be with them. Just their smile lights up even your brightest days and you finally understand what unconditional love truly means.
