WASHINGTON, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- The father of a curious 14-month-old boy said his wife's missing wedding ring finally turned up when a doctor X-rayed the baby's stomach.
"My wife couldn't find her wedding ring yesterday. We decided to have our baby X-rayed just in case," Redditor iamclarkgriswold wrote on the website.
The Reddit user shared the X-ray photo showing the ring in the baby's stomach.
He said the baby, the couple's third child, had shown previous interest in the ring before it vanished.
"We've fished it out of his mouth before. She had it on the bathroom counter while getting ready. He must have grabbed it," the man wrote.
The dad said doctors sent the family home, expecting the ring to resurface through natural means.
The Redditor later shared a second picture showing the ring free of the baby's bowels, but covered in the rest of his diaper contents.
He said his wife is still planning to wear the ring.
"I assume we'll give it a good washing first," he wrote.
