EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - An Evansville woman was in for a divine surprise after a prenatal checkup at her doctor's office.

Aley Meyer's ultrasound picture of her baby boy appears to show an image of Jesus on the cross. Aley told 14 News that she didn't even notice until about a week later when someone pointed it out at her baby shower.

"We took a picture of it and blew it up on my phone to get a closer look and it is so much detail.  You can see the hair and his legs crossed and everything," said Meyer.

In just a few hours, the picture spread like wildfire on Facebook.

"My mom shared it and she got 50 comments," Meyer said. "People are asking for permission to share it."

While Aley is getting a kick out of the interest in the picture, she also likes to think the image is a subtle message from above.

"I've been on a lot of medicine for my Chron's Disease and I've been very worried about it so I feel like it's a sign that everything's going to be ok with him," Meyer said.

Aley said her grandmother even bought her a crucifix recently for the baby which she plans to hang in the nursery. Baby Easton is due in June.
