Unborn baby makes heavy metal hand gesture during sonogram

Babies rocking out to metal is quite adorable, but how about babies announcing their musical preferences before birth? This unborn baby gestured to the world that it is already a metalhead when the baby threw up the horns and shocked both parents and the ultrasound technician during a recent sonogram.

Metro recently shared the news of the littlest metalhead during a 19-week sonogram at a Glasgow clinic, which thrilled dad-to-be Tom Dowie.

“The sonographer said she had been doing it for almost 20 years and had never seen anything like this," he said in the article. "I’m an old school heavy metal fan, so this really is quite something.”

This is truly a special moment that would make any metalhead parent proud to witness, and better yet, capture on film, to treasure forever.

Mom-to-be Caitlin Welsh added, “Obviously when Tom blares out his heavy metal when we’re working the baby seems to be enjoying it.”

Mom and Dad to be are keeping the baby’s gender a secret for now and are anxiously awaiting his/her debut in March. This will be the second child for the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter and big sister-to-be, Freya.

Sometimes, babies choose their musical tastes for themselves. Rock on, babies!
