A young mother-to-be was left terrified by her pregnancy scan because it looked like she was growing a ‘devil baby’ inside her – when her daughter looked at the camera and grinned.
Iyanna Carrington, 17, from Richmond, Virginia, was at her 24-week gender scan when the midwife showed her the tiny baby’s ‘beautiful’ face – before breaking the news she was a girl.
But when she rolled the doppler over Iyanna’s bump a second time to give her one last look, the teenager was left ‘scared’ as her baby flashed a bizarre ‘grin’ at her with wide open eyes.
But she celebrated with the baby’s dad, Raleek, as the midwife confirmed the shocking ‘demon’-like face was perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.

She 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.
Iyanna shared her scan pictures on social media, which showed her first view of her baby girl’s face (right), followed by a more alarming sight (left) when she opened her eyes
‘Most babies hide from the camera. She looked towards straight at me and she scared me a bit because the room was dark.’
Following her comical scan, Ms Carrington went on to say that she knew her daughter was beautiful.
She added: ‘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.’
Despite the initial shock, Iyanna n was assured by her midwife that the grinning face was perfectly normal
