Ultrasound Captures Baby Smiling in the Womb

LeoENGLAND — An ultrasound image showing a seven month old baby smiling in the womb is drawing amazement as it clearly captures the child’s distinct and happy grin.

The ultrasound was taken when mother Amy Cregg, 24, went to Babybond Ultrasound Direct in Burnley for a 4D scan at 31 weeks. The increasingly popular form of ultrasound uses photographs taken from a number of angles to produce a remarkably clear video of the child on the screen.

Cregg told reporters that when she saw the image of her son smiling from ear to ear, she was taken aback.

“[We] were absolutely shocked,” she said, referring to her boyfriend as Clegg is an unwed mother. “Even the people who did my scan were amazed.”

Babybond Ultrasound Direct agreed.

“Our sonographer who scanned Amy and her gorgeous baby was overwhelmed at her smiley baby throughout the entire scan,” they told The Telegraph. “I think we can safely say that Amy’s baby has been the smiliest baby we’ve ever seen.”

Clegg says that her baby boy named Leo, who was born on June 30, has been smiling ever since.

“After he was born, he was always smiling, even in his sleep,” she told reporters.

A modeling agency who saw photographs of the smiling infant even offered to use the child as a model, but Clegg is holding off for now.

“I’d be interested in him doing modeling but only when he’s older,” she said.

    What an image! Such sweet innocence. This picture should be posted at every abortion clinic around the world. Only a heartless monster could kill SOMEONE so fragile and innocent. Of course, this photo will be banned. Heaven forbid anybody actually SEE who they are killing. “Pro choice.” Such a nice name for murder.

    “Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is His reward.”
    Psalm 127:3
    A precious, beautiful creation made by The Lord God Himself. The devil hates this picture because it reminds him of God our Creator. For that mother-to-be who’s thinking about violating the sixth commandment – please give your baby the gift of life. The Lord Himself will bless you and help you take care of your wee one (Deuteronomy 7:13).
