May the face be with you! Baby's ultrasound looks just like evil Star Wars emperor Palpatine
A couple got a shock when they noticed their unborn baby’s ultrasound scan looked like the evil galactic overlord from the Star Wars movies, Emperor Palpatine.
Heather Large, 39, was having her 20-week scan with husband Toby, 33, in Pingree Grove, Illinois, when they caught sight of the shadowy Dark Lord apparently lurking inside her womb.
They immediately recognised the image as that of Luke Skywalker's power-hungry nemesis, Dark Side devotee and mentor to Darth Vader, known in later episodes as Darth Sidious.
But fortunately, four months later when the baby, real name Bowie, emerged from the shadows of Heather's uterus, the couple were relieved to find he looked nothing like the malevolent tyrant, played in the films by English actor Ian McDiarmid.
