Unborn baby poses for camera:
IS this Britain’s happiest unborn baby? The amazing image, below, was captured during scans and sent in to the Times and Express by proud parents-to-be John and Charlotte Steel from Hazel Grove.
The Steels reckon their unborn baby son could be one of Britain’s smiliest.
They sent us more amazing images which appeared to show him with his head rocking backwards and laughing heartily.
They were captured when Charlotte, 30, was 32 weeks pregnant – the baby is due this week.
The couple were amazed when they saw the pictures of what will be their first child at a clinic in Manchester.
John, 31, said: “It was really heart-warming and nice to see. It completely took us by surprise.
“We had seen other people’s scans and how good they were but we weren’t expecting anything like that. We were delighted not only with him smiling but with him opening his mouth as well. It was really good to see.”
He told how their unborn son had been uncooperative for previ- ous scans at Stepping Hill Hospital.
“We were there hours and hours trying to get a decent scan of him. He just wasn’t in the right position,” said John.
It prompted the couple to go to private Manchester clinic Lollypop where they saw the amazing smiling images.
John said: “He was looking around and everything. The scan was really, really good.”
