A United States couple have been left feeling blessed after seeing "Jesus" in the corner of their third child's ultrasound.

Alicia Zeek from Pennsylvania told local media she noticed the man, dressed in a robe, as soon as she was handed the photo.

The black and white shape, to the left hand side of the scan, could easily be interpreted as a bearded man, facing inward towards the baby.

"When they gave it to us, um, to me it's Jesus," she said.

The ultrasound came as comfort to the couple, who have had complications with their previous two children's births. Both their son and their daughter were born with birth defects.

"It almost brought tears to my eyes. I was speechless, I just couldn't believe it," father Zachary Smith said.

"I look at it as my blessing."

The baby was reportedly born on Wednesday with no complications.
