Justin Bieber has stopped crying to-parenthood. The singer conveniently revealed his wife Hailey Baldwin's pregnancy on April Fools' Day, posting a sonogram dated Feb. 2. The screenshot lists 8.3 cm, which is right in the ballpark for a three-month-old fetus, according to the Cleveland Clinic. This is one of the first indications that the photo was probably a prank.
It's worth noting that the ultrasound Bieber is posted literally a photo from the Wikipedia page about ultrasounds.
Bieber followed up with another Instagram post for doubtful followers with an extremely staged-looking photo of Hailey at a doctor's office.
And then he posted a photo of a dog in a sonogram instead of a human fetus.
"Wait omg that a ,,, APRIL FOOLS" he captioned it.
So … are the Biebers getting a puppy? Is Hailey actually pregnant? Will we spot Justin crying in the grass anytime soon? We have so many questions, and this prank doesn't answer any of them.
Aside from all that, faking a pregnancy for April Fools' Day isn't cool. The joke is inconsiderate towards the many people struggling with infertility and pregnancy losses.
But then again, this is the same guy who also reposted a photo that shared a memory of Kim Porter, who was the mother of his children and passed away late last year. In his repost, the Biebs plugged his new clothing line.
So it's not likely that he'd get the whole "being considerate" thing.
