Here's evidence: Jan Steen's "The Christening Feast." It's hard to see at this size, but note the person making the gesture behind the baby.

The person is Jan Steen, and it's a commment showing what the artist intended. There are also other symbols that further confirm the meaning of the gesture: the father is being singled out as a cuckold.
