Olympic skier Bode Miller and his wife Morgan lost their 19-month-old daughter, Emmy, in June 2018, when she accidentally fell into a neighbor’s pool.
Morgan was pregnant with their new baby, a boy, when Emmy died.
Five days after the devastating loss of their daughter, Morgan got a prenatal checkup. “I reluctantly had the ultrasound tech come check on the baby growing in my belly,” she wrote on Instagram. “To step into my future without my daughter felt like a dagger to my heart.”
The tech offered to snap a 3-D image of her unborn son, but Morgan said no. He took one anyway, excited to have the perfect angle for a clear and close-up 3-D shot.
When Morgan took a closer look at the ultrasound image, she saw something that gave her goosebumps — what she describes as the “angel” of her unborn baby’s late sister.
“He looked so much like my other babies, just like Bode with that sweet nose and those full lips,” Morgan wrote. “But as quickly as I saw this new baby, my eyes moved to the angel lying to the right of his face, holding him, arms around his neck. Almost as if to say, ‘It’s okay. I’m here.'”
Bode and Morgan’s son was born on October 5, 2018. See the incredible ultrasound scan in the clip below.
