Well we thought we’d seen it all when it came to amazing scan pics – babies giving the thumbs up, faces of deceased relatives – but this sonography image really takes the biscuit – is this actually Jesus in this mum-to-be’s womb?
Alicia Zeek thinks so – and shared her scan pic online to see what others thought, after going for a routine ultrasound.
Speaking to Fox43 news, Alicia, from Pennsylvania, USA, said that although she was not religious, the surprising apparition gave her and partner Zachary Smith a lot of comfort after their 2 older children were born with birth defects.
“When they gave it to us, um, to me it’s Jesus,” she told reporters, pointing out the top left hand image which she says appears to show a man in robes wearing a crown of thorns.
“The angel or God or Jesus, however you want to propose it, I look at it as my blessing,” her partner Zachary added, as he explained their first baby had pre-axial polydactyly (two thumbs on one hand) and their 2nd was born with a cleft palate.
“When I saw it, it almost brought tears to my eyes. I was speechless, I just couldn’t believe it,” he said.
Since sharing the image, the couple have welcomed their newborn – a little girl, whom they have named Briella. Fox43 news reports the baby was born healthy, and both she and mum Alicia are doing well.
Hmmm, it’s a pretty amazing pic, isn’t it? Did you spot anything other than a baby in your scan image? Let us know in comments or on Facebook.
