Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber nee Baldwin are not expecting a baby on April Fool’s Day.
The Canadian singer and American supermodel tricked their fans with a fake ultrasound and a photo of Baldwin with medical professionals.
On Monday, Bieber shared a photo of the ultrasound with no captions. Some fans immediately started speculating about the pregnancy. Baldwin tried to throw cold water in the comments section, writing, “Very funny…” Other celebrities like Patrick Schwarzenegger, Kyle Massey, and King Bach also chimed in.
Bieber was determined to keep up the ruse. He next shared a pair of photos of Baldwin, 22, with a doctor touching her stomach. “If you thought it was April Fool’s,” the 25-year-old “Baby” singer wrote alongside the images.
Bieber eventually let everyone in on the joke by photoshopping an image of a puppy over the ultrasound picture. “Wait, omg, is that a… APRIL FOOL’S!” the singer wrote. The sonogram photo was grabbed from Wikipedia, as noted by one user on Twitter.
The young couple got engaged on July 7. There were reports the couple obtained a marriage license in September, but it was not until Nov. 23 that Bieber definitely said they were married.
