Justin explained his prank in a post on Instagram, saying he didn't "mean to be insensitive" as he shared a screenshot of an article entitled "Justin Bieber slammed on social media for fake pregnancy news".

Underneath the photo, he wrote: "There's always gonna be people offended, there's also people who don't take jokes very well, I am a prankster and it was APRIL FOOLS.

"I didn't at all mean to be insensitive to people who can't have children. A lot of people I know, their first go to prank on April fools is telling their parents they are pregnant to get a big reaction.

"But I will apologize anyway and take responsibility and say sorry to people who were offended. I truly don't want anyone to be hurt by a prank.. it's like when I shoved cake in my little sisters face for her birthday expecting her to laugh but she cried.

"You sometimes just don't know what will hurt someone's feelings not to compare pregnancy with cake in the face but it's just to paint the picture of not knowing what will offend.

"Some might have laughed but some were offended .. I think With pranks u sometimes have to roll that dice."

Justin followed up his post with a series of hashtags, writing "#prankster#dennisthemenace #sorry #truly".

The megastar had shared a photo of an ultrasound as well as a picture of Hailey on a hospital bed being checked by a nurse, writing: "If U thought it was April fools."

However, despite joyous reactions from fans, Justin soon followed up his two fake posts with an ultrasound of a little puppy, writing: "Wait omg is that a,,, APRIL FOOLS".

Fans were seriously unimpressed, branding Justin "insensitive" and "disgusting" and pointing out that pregnancy was not something to joke about.

In the words of Hailey, very funny Justin, very funny.
