Oh, Sharon Osbourne, you're good. 

On today's April Fools' edition of The Talk, the cohost pulled a classic prank when she announced she and hubby Ozzy Osbourne were expecting. Sure, it might not sound so believable, but her delivery and backstory were flawless.

"I have a surprise for everybody, including my ladies, who I love very much," Sharon began to say, "I was away for the last two weeks, as you all know, I was actually at a clinic in Germany and I want to share some good news. It's interesting news, but it's very good news."

Osbourne continued, "I went to an in vitro fertilization clinic and I found a donor with an egg—a beautiful egg because she's a beautiful lady—and put together with Ozzy's sperm, and it was implanted in me and I have to say...I am now pregnant."

Cue gasps from the audience and each cohost's jaw dropping on the floor. Sharon continued with the joke, hugging the ladies and having tears welling up in her eyes—so sneaky!

Sarah Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood, Aisha Tyler and guest star Carnie Wilson each hugged and yelled for the 60-year-old (especially Sheryl), before Sharon finally revealed the truth.

"I have always wanted to get into acting and I just gave an Oscar-winning performance because it was an April Fools' joke and I love you all, goodbye."

There were no hard feelings among the cohosts. Everyone laughed it off and clapped in admiration of Sharon's prank (well, except Aisha, who yelled a little out of frustration).
