You may remember a couple of months ago, there was a big story about rapper Lil Xan (aka Noah Cyrus's ex-boyfriend) and his new fiancee Annie Smith expecting a baby. Except...maybe they weren't?
Fans spotted the GLARING similarities between the couple's ultrasound pic and a Google image of an 8-week ultrasound and started accusing the couple of faking the pregnancy for attention. Like, WHO would do that!?!?
While the couple denied faking the pregnancy, the story sort of just went away for a while.
Until it didn't.
In an Instagram post, Annie shared a heartfelt post explaining that they had lost the pregnancy, supplemented by pics from the day that the couple found out they were having a baby (supposedly).
these were taken the first day we met and the first few months we knew each other. feels like a lifetime ago. the moment i met you i knew you were special. i fell head over heels in love with you and only love you more and more every single day. i didn’t know it was possible to feel this way about another human. starting a family with you has been the most magical, beautiful blessing God has given me. today i feel a hurt i never knew existed. a pain that comes from my soul. to my beautiful angel, mommy loves you more than she ever knew possible. you have made me the happiest woman in the world knowing i had the chance to be your mommy. feeling you grow inside my body has been the most special gift i have been given, my prayers were answered with you. i wish more than anything that i could meet you, hold you and love you. teach you all the beautiful things in life and show you the world. i wish you could’ve known how truly blessed you were to have a daddy like diego. we love you little angel. always ♥️
Okay, I'll be honest, I have mixed emotions about this.
First of all, although comments are disabled on the post, there's a LOT of understandable confusion and even anger out there on social media. People are accusing the couple of faking a miscarriage as a cover-up for a totally fake pregnancy.
Which, if it's true, would be TOTALLY effed up.
I'm not going to throw around accusations, because I don't know. But my family has been through a miscarriage...twice, in fact...not to mention a stillbirth. There are few things in life that compare to the deep emotional havoc that a lost pregnancy wreaks on would-be parents, especially the mother. And, if Diego and Annie did in fact suffer a miscarriage, especially this late in the pregnancy (based on the original announcement this would be a miscarriage at about 14 or 15 weeks), I genuinely feel terrible for them and wish them all the love and comfort in the world. It's a horrible feeling that never quite goes away, no matter how far you distance yourself from it, and they will need an enormous amount of support from their friends and families to move past it.
But if, in fact, they're faking this whole thing...
Man, honestly, I have no FCC-appropriate words to say here, so I won't say them.
If you were never really pregnant, fine...just admit it was a bad joke or a stunt for attention. People will be pissed, but they'll move on. Logan Paul is still a thing and people seemingly have forgotten about the pattern of really stupid crap that follows him around.
But, if you're faking the death of a baby as a cover-up for a lie you never should have told, then Lil Xan, there is no amount of guilt and shame that could be considered too much for you. I sincerely hope you're not making a mockery of a trauma that millions of people have endured on a very real level.
I hope we don't find out this is a sham.
