Call it a divine surprise.

An Evansville, Indiana woman says a holy image showed up in a recent ultrasound photo.

Aley Meyer's ultrasound picture of her baby boy resembles an image of Jesus on the cross. 

Meyer says she didn't even notice the image until about a week later when someone pointed it out to her.

In just a few hours, the picture spread like wildfire, going viral on Facebook.

While Aley is getting a kick out of the interest in the picture, she also likes to think the image is a subtle message from above.

"She was like, 'do you see this?' And I was like, 'see what?' And she pointed to it and she's like, 'it looks like Jesus hanging on the cross.' And so we took a picture of it and blew it up on my phone to get a closer look and it is so much detail. You can see the hair and his legs crossed at the bottom and everything." 

"Everybody's just shocked," she added. "Everybody's like, 'I have to see that I have to see that,' so I was having to drive this thing all over town to show my grandparents who don't have Facebook and things like that."
