After spotting the orb moving around the room on the baby monitor, he had to search for the courage to check on his baby daughter Elly, reported news.com.au
The 31-year-old father admitted that he "froze" and "didn't move" when he spotted the orb. He also claimed that he didn't usually believe in spirits or "stuff like that", but that the event was definitely creepy.
Spotting the ghostly orb on the baby monitor wasn't the first spooky event to happen in the family's home in the town of Blyth in Northumberland, England. Stephan claimed that a few months prior, he had found a doll he had never seen before in his daughter's cot.
However, he admitted that, "I kind of brushed the doll one off, and said there had to be something else - some other explanation."
Stephen has claimed that spotting the orb was scarier and that when he saw it on the baby monitor he "went white" and "had to pluck up the courage to go into the room."
He is now seeking answers to what happened.
Paranormal investigator Sammy Rawlins weighed in on the event, telling Chronicle Live, "That looks like an orb, someone visiting the child from the other side."
“They want to check if it’s anyone in spirits’ birthday or anniversary this month and this can include pets that have passed.”
Stephen has remained baffled by what he saw and claimed that he initially thought it could have been a bit of dust, but "the movement, how it goes in one direction, turns a bit then flies away is so strange. I was freaked out."
