Elaborate Hoax Has Teen Fooling Everyone Into Believing She Was Expecting Triplets

One teenage girl from Michigan got a lot of attention when she told everyone she was pregnant with triplets. She showed off a sonogram and appeared to have a growing belly. Everyone was shocked when it was discovered that her entire pregnancy was a hoax.

The 16-year-old girl from Wyandotte purchased a kit from Fakeababy.com for $149.00. The kit provided her with a fake belly, ultrasound and a few other items. The teen then spread the word that she was carrying triplets.

The girl even went as far as to let her family and friends throw her a baby shower. She hauled in thousands of dollars’ worth of gifts. Attention was being lavished upon the expectant mother from friends, family, and strangers.

The girl even joined a Facebook group for expectant mothers and she posted a sonogram of her triplets. One of the women in the group pointed out that it was a fake. Someone reported the teen to police.

Detectives arrived to question the teen and she broke down and confessed. She told police she had been pregnant but lost the baby at six weeks.

"She didn't tell anybody she was scared and didn't know what to do. All donations she took are being returned," said the girl's brother to Fox2 Detroit.

Fakeababy.com claims items are meant to be used for gags. On the website, it adds, "Like almost any item in existence, this product may be used for fun or for evil, depending solely on the intentions of the user."

While it may be fun and games for some clearly such items can easily be used for more sinister motives. Even the teen’s boyfriend, who thought he was going to be a father of three, had no idea it was all a hoax. “I was excited, don't get me wrong but I was scared,” he said.

In time he’ll probably look back and realize he dodged a bullet.
