A squalid lie about the greatest of all emotions: that of having a child. Or better, about expecting three of them, because the sixteen-year-old protagonist of this story, who is from Michigan, had told everyone she was carrying triplets. A fact, that later proved to be false. A lie built cunningly, with the help of the Internet. The girl from Wyandotte, a suburb of Detroit, had even given names to the three unborn children: Ivan, Alice and Isabella and took advantage of the generosity of her friends and family.
For those who saw her it was impossible to suspect she was lying. In order to simulate pregnancy, she had used the akeababy.com site where she had bought a fake belly (for 149 dollars) and fake sonograms ($25 each). Friends and family gave her clothes and money, so as to support the future mother. The lie was unveiled in a Facebook group by a woman who was really pregnant. When truth emerged, the girl, according to what is stated by Fox2Detroit, confessed that she had interrupted the actual pregnancy during the sixth week and that she was afraid. The alleged father declared he never knew about this lie.
