Taking images of the expectant mother’s baby belly and documenting the pregnancy is a terrific way for parents-to-be to capture the joy and excitement of starting a new family.

The pair will be able to look over their pregnancy photos for the rest of their life and remember the moment right before they welcomed their darling kid.

And, while all pregnant women’s photographs are lovely in their own right, some are more memorable than others…

Dad-to-be, Dan Mozer, 30, proposed that he and his wife take some photos at neighboring Atlantic Beach in Jacksonville, Florida.

The beach is famous among locals for relaxing, strolling, and taking photographs.

Dan was inspired and asked his wife, Angelina, to pose for photos with the water as a backdrop.

He took out his camera and began taking shots.

Angelina stood in front of the ocean waves, a broad smile on her face, showing off her baby belly.

But when Dan saw what was in the background, he realized he’d captured the shot of a lifetime…

What was it that appeared behind Angelina at just the right time?

Dan was photographing a dolphin when it sprang out of the water!

Dan knew the presence of dolphins in the vicinity, so it wasn’t entirely unexpected. But he never imagined catching one jumping in the background of a photo of his pregnant wife.

“I was like, ‘Oh, my God!’ when I took it.” “Unfortunately, she completely missed it,” Dan explained to AWM.

Dan and Angelina attribute the photo to their son, Courtland, born on January 27th. According to the pair, Courtland called the dolphin from his mother’s belly.

Dan told Yahoo about how the incredible photo came to be: “Someone started yelling to us that there were dolphins, and we could see their dorsal fins.” Then, seemingly out of nowhere, this creature jumps out of the water.”

Perhaps the dolphin was aware of what was going on.

“The dolphin jumped twice, but I liked the first jump picture the best,” Dan explained.

Even though Courtland appears to be a dolphin whisperer, Angelina and Dan have decided not to change his name. “No, we’re not changing his name to Dolph Finn, as some have suggested,” Dan confirmed.

Isn’t that a fantastic image Dan managed to capture? If you agree, please share!
