Unborn baby grabs doctor's finger

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (WCIV) -- A snapshot of a baby's birth is going viral. 

Unborn Naveah Atkins reached out of her mother's womb and grabbed the finger of the doctor performing her delivery. 

Her mother is a professional photographer, but Naveah's father, Randy Atkins, snapped the photo. 

"The doctor called me over and said, h'Hey, she's grabbing my finger.' So I ran over there and just grabbed the shot, and I was just in awe looking at it, it was such an amazing picture," Randy Atkins said. 

He added that he was "very nervous" he would miss the shot. 

The baby's mother, Alicia Atkins, said they are going to hang a large canvas print of the picture in Naveah's room. 

She added that while they may someday sell the prints -- the family is being barraged with requests -- she said they will never give up the copyright, which is priceless to them.
