(WMPT/CNN) – Expectant parents went in for an ultrasound ahead of the birth of their baby girl. What they saw in the sonogram was unbelievable.

The expectant parents say they aren’t very religious, but they see a man dressed in a robe with a crown of thorns looking at their baby.

“When I saw it, it almost brought tears to my eyes,” said father Zac Smith. “I was speechless, I just couldn’t believe it, I really didn’t believe what I was seeing.”

The image that they believe is Jesus has given them comfort after Alicia experienced a number of complications with her first two children.

Her daughter was born with pre-axial polydactyl – which means she had two thumbs on one hand.

Her second child gave quite the scare, making Zac a complete wreck.

“The second one nearly took her life, her son. Just hearing I could lose both them during the … you know,” he said, becoming emotional.

It wasn’t just the complicated labor. Alicia’s son also had birth defects.

“My son had cleft lip and palette,” she said.

The news received when the ultrasound technician told Alicia and Zac that baby Briella looked happy and healthy.

“Once she said everything is good, we looked at the picture. I was like, look babe, we have nothing to worry about,” Alicia said. “Now they’re saying it’s going to be like our perfect baby.”

The couple posted the photo on Facebook asking people what they see in the sonogram. Regardless of the response, the couple says the image is a sign from above.

“The angel or God or Jesus, however you want to propose it, I look at it as my blessing,” Alicia said.
