When a 16-year-old Michigan teen announced she was pregnant with triplets, both her family, and the family of her boyfriend were worried. But after several months of alleged doctors’ visits and sonograms, the excitement for the impending birth of the new threesome grew. That was, until the teen reached the 10-month mark, and not a single baby had been born.

How is this possible? Well, the teen faked her pregnancy, and she was able to do so courtesy of the website, “FakeABaby.com

The website, which markets itself as the “Best Gag Gifts on Earth,” offers a variety of disturbing products like a faked, personalized ultrasound for $9.95, along with a silicone pregnant belly and silicone breast pushups. The Wyandotte native made several purchases from this website, managing to convince the entire community, along with her 16-year-old boyfriend Jordan Wyrabkiewicz, that she was soon to be a mother of three.

“I was excited, don’t get me wrong, but I was scared,” Wyrabkiewicz told Fox 2 Detroit, as he readied himself for the massive change. “I started looking for jobs the best I could. I was ready to donate all my time.”

Although a shock initially with both teens being so young, both families began to prepare for the triplets, with help from members of the community. Fox 2 reports that gifts for the couple, along with donations, were “pouring in;” a local church as well as a non-profit donated to the young couple, while the alleged mother-to be also received support and financial help from a Facebook group she had joined called “Moms of Triplets.” The teen had even named her three faked children — Ivan Alice, and Isabella, prompting relatives to throw her a baby shower, which took place last May.

“She got tons of help,” said Jessica Adams, Jordan’s aunt. “The gifts, they couldn’t even open at the shower there was so much.”

No one questioned the legitimacy of the teen’s pregnancy either — her belly seemed to grow, as was expected, and she had the ultrasounds to prove that she was expecting triplets. However, Krissy Wyrabkiewicz, Jordan’s mother, became suspicious as the teen continued to bar her son from any doctor’s visits.

Then 10 months rolled around, and the babies were still a no-show. Jordan said that his girlfriend had an answer for that, too. “For about 10 months…she gave me the story about micro preemies and how her doctor thought time would be better in there than in the incubator,” he said.

An Ohio mother, also a part of the group “Moms of Triplets” unraveled the teen’s story even further, when she discovered that the ultrasound she had posted was the same one that could be bought at FakeABaby.com.

“Down to baby A, baby B, baby C, the placement of the babies — they’re the exact same,” said Jordan’s other aunt, Tracy Matthews. “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.”

But the teen kept up the rouse even as more people began to doubt her. On the day before her C-section, the 16-year-old told Jordan and his family that she had lost the babies, and refused to go to the doctor. That is when Jordan’s aunt decided to call the authorities.

“So I told the hotline she has three babies that she’s supposed to be full term with, and she won’t go to the hospital and they don’t have heartbeats,” Adams said. “So they sent detectives over there and she finally cracked and told the detectives that she lost them at six weeks.”

Her brother, who spoke for her when Fox 2 knocked on the door confirmed that she had lost the babies at 6 weeks, and promised to return all donations. That is not, however, stopping the police from conducting an investigation into the legality of the teen’s actions. They are also looking to see if her parents had any involvement in this hoax, or if the pregnancy ever existed to begin with.

Washington Post also said that this case has many saying FakeABaby.com should no longer be in operation. Along with this instance, FakeABaby.com was involved in another felony in Bakersfield, Calif., where a man was accused of abusing his girlfriend after she used the site to fake her pregnancy. The court promptly dismissed the allegations, noting that the woman “wasn’t the most credible of witnesses.”

As to whether the Wyandotte teen will be charged with anything for her actions, an investigation is still pending.
