This Baby Is Ready To ‘Rock On,’ At Least According To Its Ultrasound
You're never too young to be a rock 'n' roll fan, and this baby in utero proves it.
As you know, ultrasounds are a part of pregnancy, and can often be a source of anxiety as you wait to hear the results.
This couple, however, got a fun surprise from their baby during a recent ultrasound appointment—the baby was making a “rock on” sign with its hand. On February 23, Makelle and Jared Ahlin, of Santaquin, Utah, were checking out their baby during an ultrasound when they noticed the comical hand gesture.
“The baby must be giving you a sign,” the female ultrasound technician told Makelle and Jared, and also said she was surprised at how much the baby moved. At first, “She kind of went past it, and I was just like, ‘Hey, go back, I need that picture!’” Jared told Salt Lake’s KSTU.
The couple the watched the video many times. Later, they posted the picture on social media, as luck would have it for the rest of us. Here’s Makelle’s Facebook post with the image.
Funny and amazing, right?!
“I think the baby definitely likes music,” Makelle told CBS News. “I usually have music playing throughout the day at home—I like the background noise so it’s probably a comfort thing.”
Makelle and Jared currently have two sons.
Though Jared prefers country music, Makelle told CBS News that the whole family often has dance parties to “anything pop,” so “the baby has listened to a wide variety of music and I feel as though it enjoys it all.” When the baby first kicked, Makelle was listening to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and The Lumineers on Spotify. Great taste already!
The baby is due toward the end of June, and Makelle and Jared are waiting until delivery to announce the gender, reported KSTU. Of course, no one knows if the baby will be a true rock music fan or not. I guess we’ll have to do a follow-up story sometime in the future to find out.
