PHOENIX, Ariz. — A photo of a baby reaching out of the womb and holding a doctor’s finger during a Caesarian section has gone viral.

Phoenix-area dad Randy Atkins took the picture during the delivery of his daughter Neveah back in October.

“He showed it to me and I was just like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is amazing,'” said mother Alicia Atkins.

“The doctor called me over and said, ‘Hey, she’s grabbing my finger!'” Randy recalled.

“I just ran over there and just grabbed the shot, and I was just in awe looking at it. It was such an amazing picture,” he said.

Alicia gave her doctor a canvass print of the photo. And after thousands of ‘likes’ on Facebook, she even got a few offers to buy the picture.

No matter how many kids follow — a subject of friendly debate in the growing family of five — they’ll cherish this photo of Neveah forever.
