Then, a few minutes later, Justin doubled down, posting a series of photos that appeared to show Hailey being looked by doctors while she touched her stomach. "If U thought it was April fools", Bieberwrote.
An hour after the second pic sent fans into a frenzy, the 25-year-old singer seemingly confirmed that he was, in fact, pranking his fans all along. JB eventually copped to the prank by sharing yet another image of a sonogram, this time, showing a puppy inside. The downtrodden singer made a decision to lighten his mood by playing an April Fool's joke on his fans - but some were not amused.
"Of course people are mad at Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey for pranking his fans with a pregnancy post for April Fools, it's one of the top 5 jokes from this day, yall are so d-- sensitive for no reason smh", a social media user tweeted.
People have been pretty vocal about not using April Fools Day as a chance to pretend you or someone you know is pregnant.
"I do have sympathy for women struggling from infertility".
"There's always gonna be people offended, there's also people who don't take jokes very well, I am a prankster and it was APRIL FOOLS", he begins.
"Insensitive brat. that's all I gotta say to this considering how many ppl deal with infertility [sic]", fumed one person, as another advised: "Some people try to have babies and can't, I would most definitely apologise to your fans and get it together".
