Porsha Williams just pulled the ultimate trick over on her fans.
Many have been sending congratulatory messages to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star who is pregnant with her first child with fiancé Dennis McKinley. Amid the excitement, Williams decided to prank her fans.
“Just when we thought our lives weren’t hectic enough… looks like 2019 will be even busier! These two are due in September❤️ i don’t know who their parents are, but copy and paste to freak everyone else out!!” the caption on an ultrasound photo of twin embryos read.
Williams, who shared the prank on her Instagram page Saturday, Dec. 29, simply put a few emoji in the caption: “👶🏾🎊👶🏽.”
Fans mostly laughed at themselves for falling for the trick, as it wouldn’t add up for Williams to be pregnant with twins who’d be due in September since she announced her pregnancy in September of this year.
“U got me u wrong…. I was like go porsha 😂”
“You play too much!!😂😂😂”
“That’s a good one!”
“Damn porsha, i was like OMG ITS TWINS,YOU CAUGHT ME😁”
“My eyes were as big as teacups just now! You got me good.”
A few thought it was the real deal.
“Wow double blessing.”
“Congratulations for your beautiful 2 babies. 🍼👼🏽”
Still, others felt pulling such a gag wasn’t kind to mothers who have lost pregnancies.
“Omg I really thought she was having twins. Its not s good thing to joke with stuff like this there are hurting mothers who have lost not one but 2 babies. So please be more understanding.”
“his is sad for those who can’t get pregnant or had miscarriages and lost their little ones. On a platform like this, things like this need to be seen and keep it moving rather then being shared over and over again😢I know damn well if you have lost a little one or even gone through whole pregnancy to have a still birth THESE things WOULD NOT be okay.”
Williams herself has experienced miscarriages before conceiving the baby girl she and her fiancé affectionately call PJ.
“I’ve had a miscarriage before in my past, which I’ve also been open about because I suffer with fibroids and had to have a myomectomy,” she disclosed to People magazine this fall. “So just the fear of, ‘Is the baby going to be okay? Will I make it full term?’ All those questions that you ask if you’ve had a miscarriage before.”
