According to a quickly trending article on the internet, the White House announced today that Michelle Obama is pregnant with the couple’s third child.
White House sources said:
“Michelle Obama is pregnant.”
The article (weeklyworldnews.com/politics/26881/michelle-obama-pregnant) further mentions that White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, told reporters in Hawaii today that he would not confirm or deny the rumor. But WWN has confirmed that Michelle Obama is about two months into her pregnancy and the President and First Lady expect to have the baby sometime in late July 2011.
There was a great deal of mystery about the whereabouts of the President and First Lady on Election Night this year. There were many rumors about where they might be – but now we know. The happy couple was spending quality time together, making a new baby.
The last time a baby was born in the White House was Patrick Bouvier Kennedy. He was born on August 7, 1963, and only lived for two days. Patrick was the youngest child of President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy and brother to Caroline Kennedy and John F. Kennedy Jr.
The news is completely fake having been made up by some prankster and posted on Twitter in the hope of turning the headlines into a viral tweet-fest.
This is not the first time that Twitter has been used for spreading a rumor. Recently hoaxes circled around declaring Adam Sandler and Eddie Murphy had died in freak snowboarding accidents and the same snowboard apparently killing singer Avril Lavigne.
