Chinese Gender Prediction Chart on Celebrities – Are they accurate?

Throughout this website, we provide various kind information regarding the ancient Chinese baby gender prediction chart. The problem is how accurate is the chart? OK, we can do a quick test here to see if it is really work.

You should already know that gender prediction from the Chinese gender chart is based on two inputs, which are the Chinese lunar age at the time when the mom (to-be) got pregnant and the Chinese lunar month when the mom (to-be) conceived. With our special calculator, we could actually examine the accuracy of the chart if we know the birthday of any woman and the birthday of her son/daughter.

We have chosen nine celebrity moms and their kids, mainly followed the list at a Huffington post article, for our tests. The tests are based on the following assumptions.

1. Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise

Prediction from the Chinese Gender ChartBoy
Prediction correct?
RemarkLunar 31-year-old is the age heavily in favor of baby girl (see the chart). There are only three month at the age that are predicted to get a baby boy.

Recall that a short gender period gives you a relatively low successful rate in gender prediction, and a single lunar month (lunar 3rd month in this case) is the shortest gender period at the chart. Furthermore, the long gender period (lunar 4th ~ 11th month) for girl may also affect the result next to it.

5. Gwen Stefani and Kingston Rossdale

Mother’s (Gwen) birth dateOctober 3, 1969
Son’s (Kingston) birth dateMay 26, 2006
The lunar month when the mother conceived * 7th month
Mother’s lunar age at conception *37
Prediction from the Chinese Gender ChartGirl
Prediction correct?
RemarkA single month is a short gender period (lunar 7th month in this case), and gender prediction could easily get wrong in these periods. Besides the date of conception was on the 29th lunar day, which was the end of the month. Given that the accuracy of prediction is only about 50% towards the beginning and ending of a gender period. It is not surprising that error occurred.
