A Michigan teen was being investigated after she apparently tricked family and friends into thinking she was pregnant with triplets.
According to WJBK, the 16-year-old received baby gifts and money, and had even named the triplets.
The unidentified girl used FakeaBaby.com to purchase props to help her fool friends and family. The girl’s boyfriend told WJBK he thought his entire life was about to change.
“I was excited, don’t get me wrong, but I was scared,” Jordan said. “I started looking for jobs the best I could. I was ready to donate all my time.”
The teen received gifts and donations from a local church. Relatives even held a baby shower for the girl.
A woman in the Facebook group “Moms of Triplets” figured out the ultrasound photos were fake and contacted the family.
The family then discovered the photos were taken from FakeaBaby.com.
The day before her scheduled C-section, she claimed she lost the babies but refused to see a doctor.
Jordan’s aunt called police and they are now investigating.
The television station reported that what she did was possibly criminal because of the gifts and money she accepted.
The 16-year-old’s brother told WJBK she lost the baby “at six weeks” and she didn’t tell anyone because she was “scared” and didn’t know what to do.
She’s now returning all donations she accepted during her pregnancy.
