Do you see the angel image in this ultrasound picture?

Like many moms, Kelly Lewis of Wales believes she saw something beautiful in an ultrasound photo. But not only did Lewis get a glimpse of her baby—she also saw what appeared to be a heavenly figure regarding her unborn child from above.

"It looks just like an angel is leaning over my baby, with a cherub face as well hovering over the baby. It's so clear, no one could believe their eyes when they saw it," Lewis told The Mirror about the image, captured during her pregnancy with daughter Harper in 2012.

This isn't the first case of a person believing they see something other than their fetus in an ultrasound. Recently, an Imgur user posted a scan that seems to show a demon, or some say, a mermaid, off to the side of a friend's baby. (For the record, I see a mermaid.)

I witnessed something far more innocuous in my daughter's sonogram photo: She was sucking her thumb, or at least appeared to be. Interestingly, at 2 years old, she is still rather devoted to having that particular appendage in her mouth.

As for Lewis, she says now, "Harper is a very well-behaved little girl. She has a warmhearted, caring, and helpful personality—always polite and kind, and very sweet and innocent. She also has the sweetest smile—it's very angelic. I am truly blessed to have her." Incidentally, the name Harper means "harp player" (you know, the instrument angels are supposed to play).

So maybe the angel image was real? "Yes, I'd like to believe that this is an angel," Lewis told "It's a nice thing to believe and a lovely thing to have."
