Five month into her pregnancy, Shantel Carrillo posted an image on her social media profiles of an ultrasound photo of her unborn child. Some congratulated her in the comments section, but others noticed something strange: “it looks like a person is kissing the baby on the photo.” When she got a closer look, it took her breath away, she told Inside Edition.
Looking at the photo she realized the angel kissing her baby was somehow familiar. Looking closer, it was not even a question. It was her deceased father. “It was honestly like a punch in the chest, like, how awesome it was to see that. It’s nice to look at and it’s a great story to tell,” noted Carrillo, who immediately got a hold of her dad’s old photograph with her first daughter.
The resemblance of the images is uncanny. In the video below it’s clear as a blue sky that the images are almost the same. “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,” she told Fox5.
Carrillo’s father passed away from a heart attack back in 2016. But his daughter is now sure that his soul looks after them. When they asked her if she really thinks her father is in that ultrasound image she said: “I can’t really think of it as any other way, if you knew my dad he loved to be the center of attention. Makes me feel like he is watching over my new daughter. It’s just a beautiful thing.”
