A teenage girl allegedly conned her boyfriend, family and friends into believing she was pregnant with triplets using a disturbing website 'FakeABaby.com'.
Teenage girl caught after faking pregnancy for 9 months
The 16-year-old was able to purchase false baby bumps to fool others with her growing tummy and even showed off fake ultrasound pictures of the three babies.
The teenager was spoiled with gifts at a baby shower and strangers offered donations for the young family, from Michigan.
Young dad-to-be, boyfriend, Jordan, also 16, was preparing for his life to change forever, Fox2 reported.
He told the news channel:
"I was excited, don't get me wrong, but I was scared.I started looking for jobs the best I could. I was ready to donate all my time."
As her due date approached, suspicions were raised and her story started to unravel.
Krissy Wyrabkiewicz, mother of the girl's boyfriend, Jordan, said she started to smell a rat when she could not find trace of the doctor.
"[My son] could never go to the doctors with her," she told the news channel.
The girl was also reportedly caught out by a stranger on Facebook after she posted pictures of her 'ultrasounds' to a group named 'Moms of Triplets'.
The mother, from Ohio, spotted the pictures were fake and traced them to a website called FakeABaby.com.
Jordan's aunt, Tracy Matthews, told Fox2:
"Down to baby A, baby B, baby C, the placements of the babies - they're the exact same.
"You can put them side by side and the only difference you're going to see is that she used a fake doctor that doesn't exist,She put my nephew's name on the ultrasound, which you cannot do."
Last week, the day before she was allegedly due to give birth via caesarean section, she reportedly claimed she had lost the babies, but refused to see a doctor.
Her boyfriend's family raised the alarm and police are now investigating.
