A pregnant San Diego woman said her ultrasound revealed what appears to be the image of her late father kissing her unborn daughter.
After having the medical exam Monday at Sharp Grossmont Hospital, Shantel Carrillo, who’s five and a half months pregnant with her second child, posted the photo on social media. People quickly pointed out the ultrasound image looked like “an angel” was kissing her daughter.
“Looks like there’s an angel giving your baby a kiss on the lips,” Carrillo told KGTV her friends told her.
“I didn’t see it; I just posted the original picture online,” Carrillo said.
Carrillo believes it was her father Charles, who died in 2016. She looked at the photo of her father with her first daughter Myree.
“It has his nose, his little chubby cheeks, his little double chin, and my dad wore a hat like all the time. It looks like the bill of his hat and his lips are just touching hers so perfectly,” Carrillo told KSWB-TV.
“I think my dad would just be over the moon about it, so I feel like he’s including himself in this someway, somehow,” she added.
Carrillo was his only daughter and her oldest daughter was his only granddaughter at that time. She now has something tangible to feel like her father is never too far away although he may not be here in person.
Carrillo is due to have her baby girl in April, the same month her father was born.
