GOOD NEWS LOOK: Baby 'Salutes' Marine Dad in Adorable Sonogram
Mehgan Merriott and Robert Cooper don't know the gender of their unborn child, but they're already sure that the baby will be a patriotic American.
Merriott and Cooper, a former marine, say that the 12-week-old baby "saluted" during a routine ultrasound appointment earlier this week.
The Columbus, Georgia, couple shared a sonogram that shows the baby raising its hand to its head like a miniature soldier.
"While they were doing the sonogram the baby was actually sleeping on its side and they tried several times to get him/her to wake up to take the picture that they needed to take," Merriott told ABC News. "The baby didn't want to wake up, then threw [its] hand in the air and then threw it back down."
"I almost cried," she added. "I thought it was sweet."
Merriott said her mother-in-law plans to hang the photo of the "salute" on her wall in honor of Cooper and his father, who both served in the military.
