First-time mum convinced son ‘will be a terror’ after hilarious gesture during baby scan
Expectant parents are already convinced their cheeky son is “going to be a handful” after he flipped them the middle finger during a baby scan.
Jess Johnson had paid for a private 4D scan so her fiancé David Lewis could be part of the special moment after being banned from the hospital appointments due to coronavirus restrictions.
Photos from the 30-week scan show the little boy covering his face with his hands and yawning, as if to show he was growing bored of the photoshoot, before clearly sticking his middle finger up towards his watching parents.
The couple joked his behaviour is already taking after his dad, with HGV mechanic David warning their son will be a “little terror” if he follows in his footsteps.
Jess, from Nantwich in Cheshire, said: “It was nice for my partner to see him as well, as I don’t think he would have believed me if I told him what he did.
“We went in and they started scanning me. He was a bit shy. He’d been shy in previous scans but he was covering his face up and giving a few yawns as if to say he was getting tired now.
“Towards the end of the scan he started to cover up again as if to say, ‘you’ve had enough photos, now leave me alone’. We were trying to get a couple more as we didn’t have that many.
“Five minutes before the end he decided to give us the middle finger instead as if to say ‘that’s enough mum and dad, leave me alone now’.
“My other half saw it but didn’t immediately clock on to what happened. Me and the sonographer both looked at each other and said, ‘did he just stick the finger up?’.
“She said, ‘I think so’, so we went back on it. She rewound it a little bit.
“He sort of put it up and then put it back down as if to say, ‘I didn’t mean to do that’. As if he knew it was naughty but he still did it anyway, bless him.
“Once he’s born, I will just be laughing at him more than anything, I think.”
Courier Jess, who is now 38 weeks pregnant, says she can’t wait to meet her “cheeky” son, and thinks it will be a crazy house when he joins forces with her two dogs.
She said: “Dave is definitely cheeky sometimes. I say he takes after his dad in every way so he’s probably like his dad. He’s definitely stubborn like his father.
“I don’t think he’s going to come on time because, if he’s like his dad, he leaves everything to the last minute. I think he’ll be like him. It’s in his genes, bless him.”
David, from Liverpool, said he’s excited and overwhelmed to become a parent for the first and is busy getting everything ready for the new arrival.
He said: “We’re over the moon. I was emotional when I first saw him. It went from literally a scan picture from Jess’s first scan, and it looked nothing like a baby.
“Then when I went into the first scan and there was a fully grown baby with full features, it was crazy how much he had changed in that little space of time. It was really overwhelming.
“I did see the moment where he flashed the middle finger on the scan. I laughed. I was shocked – even the lady doing the scan couldn’t believe it.
“I think she took a picture herself because she couldn’t believe what he’d done. He takes after his dad. He’s probably going to be a little terror if he takes after me.”
He said he has shown the scan to friends and family, leaving them all “shocked in a good way at how he’s managed to do this”.
David added: “We can’t wait for him to be here. It’s life-changing. It’s going to be amazing.”
