He revealed he was taking a break from music to focus on being a good husband and father, so when Justin Bieber posted a photo of a baby scan to his Instagram page last night, fans were convinced his wife Hailey Baldwin was expecting the couple's first child.
The 25-year-old singer shared the below shot to his 107 million Instagram followers, with no caption...
Just one hour later, Biebs whipped up even more excitement when he posted another shot, this time of his wife Hailey in a maternity ward, captioning the snap with, 'If U thought it was April fools'. [sic]
Of course, fans of the popular singer went into complete meltdown at this point, thinking their idol was going to become a dad. One user wrote, 'CONGRATS😍😫😍', with another adding, 'OMG wonderful news!'.
