Amanda Seyfried's rare photo with baby son reveals disturbing image emerging in background 

This... is terrifying

Jessica Finn

Amanda Seyfried is notoriously private when it comes to her children, so when she posted an extremely rare photo of her holding her baby - it was for a chilling reason.

The Mamma Mia actress took to her Instagram Stories and posted an otherwise beautiful snap of herself with her baby Thomas snuggled up to her with their family dog alongside them.

However, the idyllic photo is disturbed by an image emerging in the background of the photo.

On a closer inspection of the photograph, it seems they are not alone.

Behind Amanda, is a man's face, emerging in the window from the shadows of inside the store. The man has a terrifying expression on his face - with one of his eyebrows shooting up.  It is a chilling image. 

You can also see the outline in the window of the person who is taking the photo for Amanda, who could easily be a passerby.

Terrifying. Amanda Seyfried shared this snap of her and her baby, with a man lurking behind her

The actress posted the photo only to her Instagram Stories, and circled the man in the window with no real explanation as to where she was or who this man might be.

The Mean Girls star gave an insight into her family's experience in lockdown during the summer, revealing that her mother, Ann, was helping with childcare.

While Amanda has given fans glimpses of her baby son, it's unlikely she will be sharing any photos of her children's faces anytime soon – a practice many celebrities follow, including Katie Holmes, Katy Perry and Tyra Banks.

Opening up about her daughter's privacy during an interview with Entertainment Tonight in June, Amanda said: "I don't share her face or anything [online]; I'll let her choose when she wants to do that later on in life."

When Amanda announced Thomas' arrival in September, she chose to do it in the best way possible, by raising awareness of two charities close to her heart – INARA and War Child.

The Hollywood star had managed to keep her second pregnancy out of the spotlight, and following in Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom's baby announcement when Daisy was born in August, she and Thomas released a brief statement on War Child's Instagram alongside the first photo of their son.
