Can you see why everyone's so obsessed with this sonogram?

A couple in Pennsylvania were nervous about their ultrasound for their newest bub after their previous two had difficult births, but then they saw something that put them at ease.

When the technician handed over the ultrasound, mum-to-be Alicia Zeek immediately saw a picture of Jesus in the corner watching over her baby.

“When they gave it to us, um, to me it’s Jesus,” she told a local news station.

Dad Zac Smith was equally as astounded.

“This is distinct– I mean, there’s another face looking at my daughter!” Mr Smith said.

“It almost brought tears to my eyes… I was speechless, I just couldn’t believe it. I really didn’t believe what I was seeing,” he said.

The couple say they aren’t particularly religious but they saw the image as a sign from above.

“The angel or God or Jesus, however you want to propose it, I look at it as my blessing,” Mr Smith said.

Their oldest daughter has pre-axial polydactyly, meaning she was born with two thumbs on one hand, and their son was born with a cleft lip and palate.

After seeing the image, the doctor said the baby Briella looked healthy and happy.

“Once she said everything is good and we looked at the picture, I was like– look, babe, we have nothing to worry about,” Mr Smith said.

Since posting the ultrasound image on Facebook, Ms Zeek has given birth to baby Briella who was born healthy and is doing great.
