Hearing a child’s first word has been voted the most magical moment in life – ahead of when they were born, a study has found.

A poll of 2,000 adults found the heart-warming family memory also beat getting married.

But having a baby is only the third most magical moment in life, chosen by 46 per cent of British men and women.

Falling in love for the first time, getting your first pay packet and hearing your baby’s first cry also feature in the top 20.

The study which was conducted by high street hearing specialist Hidden Hearing also revealed other top life milestones including getting your first job, hearing someone you love say ‘I love you too’ and buying your first home.

Jennie Bond, Royal Correspondent and Ambassador for the Campaign for Better Hearing said: “There are so many magic moments in life where your hearing plays a vital role.

“For example, my daughter Emma’s first little cry when she was born or hearing Brian May twang out the National Anthem from the roof of Buckingham Palace for the Golden Jubilee.”

While many women’s most magical moment in life is having a baby, this was overtaken for men with getting married, buying your first home and passing your driving test.

Almost one in five men even named their football team winning a major trophy as a top moment, ahead of hearing a ‘yes’ when they proposed to their partner.

Interestingly, the study, carried out via OnePoll.com, found eight in 10 Brits believe hearing is one of the key senses necessary to enjoy life’s most precious moments.

But more than a quarter of those aged 45 and over are currently putting up with, or have previously put up with, a hearing issue.

One respondent admitted they couldn’t hear their daughter recite her wedding vows because of their hearing problems.

Another missed a vital phone call due to not hearing the ringtone and lost an opportunity to purchase a dream house.

Hidden Hearing is supporting ‘The Campaign for Better Hearing’ to get everyone, especially those over the age of 55 in the UK, to have a regular hearing test to help stay on top of their health and ensure they enjoy life’s most magic moments.

As part of the campaign, Hidden Hearing is offering up to five free pairs of hearing aids each month, one for every 1,000 free hearing tests they carry out to people who otherwise couldn’t afford them.

Jennie Bond added: “One of the highlights this year is going to be the wedding of Harry and Meghan at Windsor Castle.

“The crowds will be enormous, I’m really looking forward to it as I’ll be able to hear what everyone is saying, thanks to my hearing aid.”
