Alien roots: The Baby Whisperer Yvonne Darnell has grown her very own intergalactic carrot
She's been dubbed The Baby Whisperer for helping hordes of women realise their dreams of starting a family against medical odds.
Now it seems acupuncturist Yvonne Darnell has used her special skill to give life to one of her own carrots - which bears an uncanny resemblance to an angel-faced alien.
The 'Sussex Stork' dug up the unusual legume from her Burgess Hill garden.
With green shoots for its hair and two dangling tips for its legs, it's easy to see how she has become attached to the arm-less root vegetable.
The 46-year-old has helped 80 women, who had previously been told they had no hope in having children, conceive.
Her first success story was a woman who had endured eight failed rounds of IVF treatment.
Hands up for the carrot. The five-fingered vegetable which was grown in Shropshire
Other crunchy carrots to have hit the headlines in recent years include a five-fingered specimen grown by Peter Jackson, 66, in Shropshire, and a Buzz Lightyear lookalike found by Clive Williams in Henley-on-Thames, Oxon.
In 2010 a U.S.S. Starship Enterprise-shaped potato was spotted at the National Gardening Show in Shepton Mallet, Somerset.
Amateur gardener Peter Glazebrook pulled up the giant spud - weighing a whopping 8lb 4oz.
Baby-shaped pears, a parsnip that looked like a witch and a potato teddy bear have all also been discovered.
Grandfather Clive Williams was shocked to discover the spitting image of the Toy Story character while digging up his vegetable patch
