Justin Bieber needs to give us a bit of warning before he announces a new family member, because fans are absolutely reeling.
The Love Yourself singer, 28, took to social media yesterday with a gorgeous snap of himself and a tiny little baby in his arms and fans are going suitable nuts.
The star – who married Hailey Bieber back in 2018 – has indeed welcomed a new family member.
But everyone calm down, as it appears the tot is Justin’s new niece, Poppy.
‘Meet my niece Poppy Ford Kennedy,’ he wrote. ‘Anyone who knows @thejasonkennedy and @thelaurenkennedy know their journey and challenges with having kids. they now have two beautiful babies that I’m absolutely obsessed with.’
Justin’s fans were also obsessed – to put it mildly – as some took to the comments section thinking it was his baby.
‘Lmao next time put the mom in it because I almost died,’ wrote one fan, as another commented: ‘No fr like why would he scare me like this.’
Another said, ‘You and babies always melt my heart,’ while another simply commented: ‘I’m obsessed with this.’
Runway star Hailey recently opened up in an interview about how much she wants children.
The 26 year old said: ‘I literally cry about this all the time!
‘I want kids so bad but I get scared. It’s enough that people say things about my husband or my friends.
‘I can’t imagine having to confront people saying things about a child.’
She added to the Sunday Times’ Style magazine: ‘We can only do the best we can to raise them. As long as they feel loved and safe.’
Over the years, Hailey has time and time again had to dismiss pregnancy rumours.
Back in November, the model explained that her ovarian cyst, which was the ‘size of an apple’ was ‘not a baby,’ to her fans.
Hailey shared a photo of herself lifting up her jumper to show her stomach and wrote: ‘I have a cyst on my ovary the size of an apple.
‘I don’t have endometriosis or PCOS [polycystic ovary syndrome] but I have gotten an ovarian cyst a few times and it’s never fun. Not a baby.
‘It’s painful and achy and makes me feel nauseous and bloated and crampy and emotional. Anyways…I’m sure a lot of you can overly relate and understand. We got this.’
The couple got engaged in the Bahamas in July 2018 and secretly wed at a New York courthouse in September of the same year.
The famous couple enjoyed a larger ceremony for family and friends a year later in South Carolina where they exchanged Tiffany & Co wedding rings.
In March last year, Hailey hit back at another pregnancy rumour, as she said simply: ‘I’m not pregnant leave me alone.’
Last year’s Met Gala also got tongues wagging, after Justin ‘posed innocently’ with his hand on his wife’s stomach.
Hailey was also forced to deny she was pregnant after Justin cutely referred to the couple as ‘mum and dad’ in one of his Instagram posts.
