Parents Say They Spotted Jesus in Daughter's Sonogram
What do you see?   (WPMT)

We've seen Jesus on an apple, Jesus on a power utility pole, and now, out of Pennsylvania ... Jesus in a sonogram. WPMT reports that a couple there whose older two children were born with birth defects found comfort in the ultrasound for their third, which showed not only the fetus of their soon-to-arrive baby girl, Briella, but, they say, the son of God watching over her from the far left of the frame. "When they gave [the sonogram picture] to us ... umm, to me, it's Jesus," says mom Alicia Zeek. Her fiance, Zachary Smith, says that when he saw the image, "it almost brought tears to my eyes" and rendered him "speechless." The couple, who say they're not terribly religious, weren't freaked out by the sonogram, though: They were "relieved," Smith tells Inside Edition.

That's because Zeek had trouble with her first two pregnancies, and their other two children, a daughter and son, were born with two thumbs on one hand and a cleft palate, respectively. And pregnancy No. 3 was beset by preeclampsia, making the pair anxious. "Our nerves were just wrecked," Smith notes. But the BBC reports Briella was born Wednesday and that she and Zeek are both healthy and doing fine. Smith says their family members "told us somebody was watching over [Briella]. ... We're really blessed." Meanwhile, HuffPost offers a couple of other "ultra-interesting" sonograms to recently pop up, including one of a fetus appearing to make the "rock on" sign and one of twin girls looking like they're giving each other a kiss. (In this sonogram, a twin appears to clutch his dying brother's hand.)
