We've all seen those fake baby bumps worn by jocular "pregnant" dads. Now imagine someone faking an entire pregnancy. A 16 year-old teen from Michigan was able to pull the proverbial wool over the eyes of her family and friends - apparently even her boyfriend - who believed she was carrying triplets.
