SAINT-JEAN-SUR-RICHELIEU, QUEBEC – A small town outside Montreal rallied around a local couple expecting quintuplets, only to find out the entire pregnancy was a fake.

In fact, the woman was so good at faking pregnancy, she managed to convince her own body.

Her boyfriend, who was duped along with everyone else, told the Toronto Sun her belly swelled, she suffered morning sickness, and even began lactating.

Wow, that is some commitment to the role of ‘pregnant woman’.

Friends and neighbors had been looking forward to the big arrival, showering the couple with donations and gifts.

Now the woman’s boyfriend is returning all of the presents for the imaginary kids he was so excited to meet.

As for the phony mama to be? She’s currently receiving psychiatric care; which sounds like it’s probably for the best.
