A California mother shared an incident from her maternity check-up on Reddit which has left social media divided. Shantel Carrillo from San Diego believes that she has seen the image of her late father appear in an ultrasound scan of her unborn child, reports CBS8.
She backed her claim by stating that she had placed the ultrasound photo of her unborn daughter with an old photo of her father smiling down at her older daughter, side-by-side and the resemblance is uncanny. “You could see his chin right here,” Shantel said pointing out to the image. “That’s his nose and that’s where his little cheek would be. And that’s the bill of his hat,” she told CBS8.
Shantel adds that she did not notice this eerie resemblance when the photo came out. It’s only after she posted the photo on Facebook and people started weighing in, that she realized this unusual occurrence.
“People were messaging me saying ‘it looks like somebody’s kissing your baby’ and then people that actually knew my dad were like ‘that looks like Chuck, that looks your dad, oh my gosh it looks like your dad,’” Carrillo said.

Shantel Carrillo says when the ultrasound of her unborn daughter is placed side-by-side with a photo of her father Charles, the profiles are eerily similar.
“And then I started looking at it and I found a picture of my dad holding my first daughter and it’s like the exact same thing, it’s crazy,” she continued. Although it may just be a trick of the light, the lines in the ultrasound picture do seem to cast a shadow.
Shantel had the fortune of seeing her father spending quality time with her firstborn but before she could give birth to her second daughter, her father sadly passed away in 2016. From her interviews, it is evident that she is overwhelmed by this occurrence.
Following this, some Redditors showed their amazement to the incident. A few users also shared similar experiences from their own lives.
“That’s so beautiful. She literally is being kissed by her guardian angel,” one comment read.
“That’s awesome! My father died in May of 2017. Less than a month later, my wife went into labor at 25 weeks. As we were going to bed in the hospital one night I saw my dad leaning against the sink, smiling at us. I took that as a sign that he was watching over our son. The next day, our son was born. He was super early and tiny, but he was very healthy and has continued to thrive amazingly well. Thanks dad!” another user wrote.
