Isla has been a rocker before she was even born (Picture: Kennedy News and Media) Rock ‘n’ rollers, bow down to your new ruler: A toddler called Isla Langham. You see, no matter how long you’ve been listening to the oldies, no matter how many vinyls you have, you can’t claim you were a rocker before you were even born. Isla can. Now 18 months old, Isla brought joy to her parents by making the devil horns gesture (you know, the rock and roll signal) while she was still in the womb. See? She’s far more hardcore than we’ll ever be. Jodie Lee and her partner Davie Langham were staring at their daughter at the 24 week scan when they saw her give the iconic hand gesture from inside the bump.
At the 24 week scan Isla made the devil horns signal (Picture: Kennedy News and Media) The couple had been playing their child music by resting headphones on Jodie’s bump, so her first hand gesture felt pretty fitting. Jodie, from Eastbourne, East Sussex, said: ‘As soon as we saw her hand we thought it was the best thing ever. We loved it. ‘Isla showed her love of music before she even arrived and now she’s our little rock chick. ‘It was a video scan, so the midwife went through and showed us the whole body. ‘For the last bit Isla was hiding her face, so I poked my belly and said “can you just show Mummy and Daddy that you’re okay?” As soon as I said that she put her hand up.
Now 18 months old, Isla loves music (Picture: Kennedy News and Media) ‘It’s fantastic when you get to see your baby anyway, but Davie was overwhelmed. ‘She’s our little miracle and we’d wanted her for so long. He went from having tears in his eyes to getting the giggles. ‘You get excited [at the scans] anyway because you realise it’s actually a person in there, but we were even more excited to meet her after that. ‘It still makes us smile and laugh now. ‘When I put it online all my friends thought it was fake. They couldn’t believe it. ‘My partner is a photographer and videographer, so they thought we’d photoshopped it.
We blew it up and framed it straight away to put up in the house, and my sister asked for a copy too, so she’s got it up in her house.’ Now 18 months old, Isla has a love of music and is always dancing to her parents’ remixes. That’s great news for her parents, who are both massive music fans. ‘She is obsessed,’ says Jodie. ‘As soon as she hears music, even from a passing car, she’ll stop, put both her hands in the air and bounce up and down or shake her bum. She never stops. ‘When we were on holiday she’d climb on the stage and dance in front of 200 people. She’s not shy.’
