19-year-old claims she’s pregnant with baby Jesus, an ultrasound reveals the truth

The Dr. Phil Show is known for its idiosyncratic guests, but 19-year-old Haley took the cake in 2016.

Haley told her family she was expecting... baby Jesus. Naturally, her family did not believe her. Home tests and a few doctor visits did not confirm Haley’s pregnancy, but she was adamant that she was pregnant and would give birth soon.

According to the girl’s mom and sister, her claim about pregnancy was just another one in a string of false claims, and they called Haley a “compulsive liar.” Haley had previously claimed that Eminem was her father.

The girl’s family turned to Dr. Phil for help.

Haley got an ultrasound, which she expected to reveal a baby. Dr. Phil invited Dr. Travis Stork, the host of The Doctors, to review the girl’s ultrasound in front of her family and the audience.

The ultrasound showed no signs of a baby. The girl had claimed she was 9 months pregnant, which the ultrasound would have certainly shown, but the test confirmed that there was no pregnancy. But even at that point, Haley did not believe she wasn’t pregnant.

What happened next

A few months later, Haley returned to the show where she admitted, with a heavy heart, that she wasn’t pregnant. She had thought she was pregnant because she felt bloated, but it turned out to be just that – bloating. The girl said:

I woke up one night and I thought I was having a contraction. I looked at my stomach and it went completely flat. It made me realize I wasn’t pregnant.

I had a bunch of gas lodged in my stomach and I thought I was pregnant.

I thought I’d had a miscarriage. I waited a couple of days and my stomach just kept getting smaller and smaller and then I started bleeding. But nothing came out except blood. So I think the baby would have come out.

After her first appearance on the show, Haley was put into a residential treatment program. It seems therapy helped her. In a follow-up interview, she said:

I didn’t want to talk about my illness because I didn’t think I had one.

She went on to say that she was more open with the staff about her thoughts and feelings.

We hope Haley got whatever mental health condition she’s affected by under control and has a better relationship with her family now that she’s got help. Mental illness is not a joke!
