Mum Convinced Baby Boy Will Be 'Handful' After Giving Middle Finger In Scan
A first-time mum is convinced her baby boy will be a 'handful' after he flashed his parents the middle finger during a 4D scan.
Jess Johnson paid for a private scan so her fiancé David Lewis could see their baby, since he wasn't allowed into hospital appointments with her due to coronavirus restrictions.
But the parents were shocked when their cheeky son flashed them the middle finger at the end of his 30-week scan - and the mum-to-be joked that her son will be a 'handful'.
Hilarious 4D scan photos show the little boy covering up his face and yawning - before appearing to aim his middle finger directly at his watching parents.
The 24-year-old joked that the baby seemed to be telling his parents he'd had enough photos as he made the rude gesture.
But the couple claim the baby takes after his dad, with HGV mechanic David, 23, warning that their son may 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.
"Basically 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.'"
She added: "My other half saw it but didn't immediately clock on to what happened. Me and the sonographer both looked at each other and I 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. We were quite shocked and even she was quite shocked to be honest.
"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."
David, from Liverpool, was thrilled he was able to be in the scan room to see the little boy's finger flash. He said: "I'm overwhelmed and excited to be a dad. It's our first baby so we don't really know what to expect.
"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.
"I've showed [the scan photo] to friends and family, to everyone. A lot of people came up to me and said, 'That scan is amazing.' It's had a lot of attention.
"Everyone has been shocked in a good way at how he's managed to do this. We can't wait for him to be here. It's life-changing. It's going to be amazing."
