Most babies are happy, but this baby Leo is the happiest of them all. When she was pregnant, Amy Cregg visited a doctor to have a 4D imaging scan taken of her belly.
The technology is similar to an ultrasound in that the images are produced by high-frequency sound waves “bouncing off” the body, but instead of producing a flat picture, it creates a 3D image.
It works by piecing together several pictures taken from a variety of angles to produce the accurate model. The images are then recorded on film in real time, marking the “fourth” dimension.
When she was getting her belly scanned, however, Cregg noticed something unusual: The 31-week- old fetus was smiling inside his mother’s tummy.
Baby Leo, as he’s since been named, is now 5 months old and continues to live up to his happy reputation. After he was born, he was always smiling — even in his sleep.
He’s even been dubbed the “Happiest Baby in Britain.” Baby Leo’s mother admits that modeling agencies have approached her in an effort to hire her happy little boy, but she’ll only allow it once he’s older.
