Mother-to-be spots her unborn son already mimicking her grandfather

Mother-to-be, 29, spots her unborn son already mimicking her beloved late grandfather by interlacing his fingers on her 4D scan

  • Samantha Stoney, 29, burst into tears when she first saw the scan of her baby
  • The mother-to-be, from Leyland, would visit her late grandfather everyday 
  • The scan of her son with interlinked fingers looked just like the way he would sit

A mother-to-be burst into tears when she spotted her unborn son already mimicking her late grandfather by interlacing his fingers in the womb. 

Samantha Stoney, from Leyland, Lancashire, claims her unborn baby’s pose looked exactly the same as how her grandfather Arnold Spencer would sit when she went to visit him every day.

Photos show Mr Spencer, who passed away aged 87, sitting with his hands resting with his fingers interlinked – in the exact same pose as Miss Stoney’s baby in the 4D scan.

The 29-year-old, who is due in February, claims she was very close with Arnold and would visit him each day for a chat before he passed away three years ago in January 2017.

When Miss Stoney found out she was pregnant with her first child in June, she was sure that Mr Spencer would have been thrilled to be a great-grandfather.

But when she saw the scan for the first time she burst into tears after it reminded her of her late relative – and she says it was a sign that he was ‘looking down on her’.    

‘It felt amazing seeing the scan. When I first saw it, I started crying because I didn’t know what to expect,’ she said.

‘My grandad died two years ago, and I spent every day with him. For 27 or 28 years, I went around to see him every single day.

‘Even if it was just for five minutes, I would go around to see if he was okay.

‘He was always sat in his chair with his fingers together. I was very close to my grandad. He was always there for me and he only lived around the corner.

The mother-to-be’s (pictured with her boyfriend Hakan) pregnancy has been smooth so far with no morning sickness or stretch marks, and she claims her grandfather is ‘definitely watching out for her’

‘When we went for the 4D scan at the clinic, I thought, “that’s my grandad”… It was an instant reaction.

‘It made me cry happy tears. I could see the comparison between them, and knew that my grandad must be looking down [on us].

‘I definitely feel like it is a sign from my grandad. I think he would have liked to have been a great-grandfather.’

Now she plans to tell her son all about him – and show him photos of their same pose in his baby scan.

‘I’m not sure if he looks like him yet. My son seems to be cheeky. I’ve got another scan picture where he’s pulling his tongue out. My grandad was like that, always having a laugh and giggling,’ she said.

‘I really just can’t wait [to be a mum]. It’s going to be an amazing experience. I don’t know what to expect with it being my first child. It’s overwhelming and exciting.’

‘I think my grandad would be very, very happy for me and he’d spoil him. He always used to spoil us.

‘There aren’t many boys in our family so I think he’d be really happy. He would have liked to show him what he used to do when he was younger.’

Miss Stoney is now gearing up for the arrival of her son, and says she plans to take him to visit her grandfather’s grave and show him is medals when he’s older.  

‘We’ve got nearly everything ready now, we’re just waiting for him to come,’ she said.

‘I’ve shown my friends [the pictures] and said, ‘isn’t this strange’. My friends say, ‘it’s very strange, he must be looking down on you’.

‘My son will know about my grandad. I’m going to show him the picture of the two of them like the side by side comparison.

‘My mum has my grandad’s medals, so I’d like to show him those. Obviously I will take him to the grave too.’
