Teen fakes triplet pregnancy for 10 months using ‘disturbing website’

A 16-year-old girl from Michigan faked her pregnancy for 10 months using false tools she purchased from a website called FakeABaby.com.

The girl, who can’t be named as she’s still a minor, bought ultrasounds, positive tests, pregnancy bumps and other material to fool unsuspecting family and friends. She even joined a Facebook support group for moms expecting triplets.

As her belly got bigger and bigger, she accepted gifts and cash donations from community members and family.

'I don't think anybody should go through that'

"I started looking for jobs," said Jordan, the girl’s boyfriend, also 16-years-old.

"I don't think anybody should go through that," he said, adding that the two had even come up with names for the children: Ivan, Alice and Isabella. "All this over a website." The teen’s scam raised suspicion when she reportedly posted pictures of her fake ultrasound in the ‘Moms of Triplet’ Facebook group. One of the mothers noticed that the ultrasound wasn’t legit and tipped off the teen's family. On the day before the teenager was reportedly supposed to deliver the triplets via C-section, she reportedly told her family she had miscarried.

When she refused medical attention, her family called the police. When the authorities interviewed her, she admitted she had been pregnant, but lost the babies at six weeks.

"She didn't tell anybody; she was scared and didn't know what to do," her brother said.

Police continue investigating the case considering the donations and money she received under false pretenses.
