It turns out that Justin and Hailey Bieber will not be having a baby after all. Bieber posted a few pictures of what appeared to be Baldwin in a doctor's office and an ultrasound to his Instagram on April 1. When his follow-up post said the whole thing was a joke, some people were deeply offended.
Pregnancy can be difficult on a lot of people, and issues like infertility are very common in the US. Some — like reality star Malin Andersson, who just lost a baby herself — felt his joke was very insensitive. Bieber later wrote a lengthy post on Instagram to defend himself.
And the ultrasound picture Justin posted is easily traceable.
All you have to do is google "ultrasound," and the picture that Justin used is the second search result. It's the image Wikipedia uses on its ultrasound page. Clearly the couple didn't put much effort into making the pregnancy believable because they thought is was a harmless prank. People have been speculating that Hailey is legitimately pregnant for a while now — maybe the Biebers ideated the prank because so many people are invested in their potential offspring.
