Mom and Former Marine Dad Get Military Surprise From Baby When They Go in For Their 12-Week Sonogram

Mehgan Merriott and Marine veteran Robert Cooper are anxiously awaiting the birth of their child.

And as they went in for their twelve-week sonogram they received a special surprise — a salute.

Merriott explained to ABC News:

“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. The baby didn’t want to wake up, then threw [its] hand in the air and then threw it back down.”

The whole family — including their three-year-old son — thought it was a hoot, and added to their excitement.

Merriott tells Independent Journal Review that the couple’s happy to share the photo with others, and they cannot wait for their little one’s arrival.
