Justin Bieber raised a few eyebrows when he shared an ultrasound image, suggesting that his wife Hailey Baldwin is pregnant. While many of the fans were quick to say it was an April Fools prank, there were a few who were excited about the possibility. The singer has now confirmed that the previous post was a joke.

Bieber’s post on Instagram of an ultrasound showed a baby. One thing that was a little off about the post were that the singer didn’t say anything in it. If it really was a pregnancy announcement, the singer would have said something. In addition, Baldwin hasn’t been seen with a baby bump.

Since there was doubt in the minds of the fans, Bieber shared another set of pictures on Instagram. The photos showed his wife at a hospital with her shirt buttons open as a doctor examined her.

“If U thought it was April fools (sic),” Bieber captioned the post.

Convinced that the post was real, many fans congratulated the young couple.

However, in a recent post, Bieber confirmed that the pregnancy posts were, in fact, an April Fools prank. The new ultrasound picture that the singer shared online showed a puppy instead of a baby. Some of the fans were angry over the prank and slammed the singer for the fake pregnancy posts.

Bieber also got into some trouble over another recent social media post. P Diddy recently shared a picture of him with late ex Kim Porter online. Bieber shared the same picture on Instagram and tagged his clothing line in the post, which made some angry fans demand that the “Love Yourself” singer delete the post for being “disrespectful.”

Responding to the criticism, Bieber defended his post. He said that he has all the respect for Diddy and Porter, and that God knows his heart.

Bieber explained that he didn’t realize that Diddy posted the picture in mourning. The singer also justified adding his Drew House brand name in the post by saying that he was appreciating the picture as art, and Diddy’s outfit was identical to his clothing line.
