Pregnant Iyanna Carrington, 17, had a bit of a surprise when she went for her 24-week scan.

No, we’re not talking about the baby’s gender.

Iyanna was gazing at her unborn child’s ‘beautiful’ face when suddenly her daughter appeared to flash a ‘scary’ smile with wide open eyes.

While the 17-year-old mum was understandably ‘scared’ by the appearance of the baby’s ‘demon’ face, her midwife reassured her that the scan was perfectly normal and the baby is healthy.

Thankfully Iyanna is able to laugh at her baby’s momentarily terrifying appearance, joking online that she already loved her ‘devil baby’.

Iyanna, from Richmond, in Virginia, US, said: ‘I’d never seen anything like it. I was going to see whether she was a boy or girl.

‘I love this devil baby so much already.

‘They showed her face and she looked normal, then the nurse confirmed she was girl, but I knew that deep down already.

‘Then they put it back on her face and she was just looking right at me like that.

‘I said “she looks like a ghost” in the doctor’s office and the doctor said “yeah, that’s very [normal]”. She looked a bit crazy.

‘Most babies hide from the camera. She looked towards straight at me and she scared me a bit because the room was dark.

‘I don’t know why she looked like that. Some people from the internet thought she was fake, but that’s my real life baby there.

‘The dad was there too. He was shocked by the news that she was a girl, because he has two sons and he thought it would going to be another boy.

‘We were just laughing at the scan. You can see her little nose on [the other image]. You can tell she’s beautiful really.’
