If you needed some weird news to distract yourself from the election, we got you. A 19-year-old woman claims she will soon give birth to baby Jesus. The only problem is her own family says she's not even pregnant, let alone carrying the messiah.
This week on Dr. Phil, a 19-year-old named Haley (her last name wasn't revealed) claimed she's 9-months pregnant and will soon deliver Jesus. "I know my pregnancy is real. I’ve gained at least 22 pounds," Haley told Dr. Phil. "I was sleeping one night and my baby punched the bottom of my stomach and kicked me, and I can feel his head right here, right below my belly button."
As you might expect, people are skeptical. "My family, my friends, my pastors at church, they don’t believe that I’m pregnant," Haley said. "I know it’s Jesus. I don’t care if my family disowns me. It really comes down to if you’re a true believer in Jesus or not."
In fact, Haley's own mother says her daughter is "delusional" and a "compulsive liar." According to her mother, Haley has claimed that Eminem is her father and has also lied about being on American Idol and donating a kidney. Haley claims she's been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, but her mom says she's lying about that too. "If it's coming out of Haley's mouth, it's usually a lie," the mom said.
Multiple pregnancy tests and an ultrasound haven't found any evidence of Haley's alleged pregnancy. But Haley isn't fazed: "I don’t care what the home pregnancy test or a doctor says, when I give birth to my baby, no one is going to deny him because he’s my savior."
"I can't keep living like this. We have to treat her like she's actually pregnant to avoid conflict," the mother said. "I'm hoping Dr Phil can let me know if this is part of her act or does she really need help."
