A San Diego woman delighted in “meeting” her unborn daughter for the first time, but she wasn’t expecting to also see her late father.

At five months pregnant, Shantel Carrillo went to Sharp Grossmont Hospital on Monday for an ultrasound.

She shared the black-and-white photo on her Facebook page and received some heartwarming comments from friends and family.

While looking at the profile shot of her daughter, many pointed out what appeared to be another figure above the baby: an “angel” kissing her forehead.

With a photo of her dad holding her first child, Myree, and the ultrasound side by side, the resemblance is almost uncanny.

“It has his nose, his little chubby cheeks, his little double chin, and my dad wore a hat all the time,” she said. “It looks like the bill of his hat, and his lips are just touching hers so perfectly.”

Carillo was her father’s only daughter, and Myree his only granddaughter. He died suddenly in 2016.

“My dad was obsessed with my daughter,” she said. “It was kind of like validation, like he’s got my back … This is just something he would do.”

Her second child is due in April.
