Gwen Stefani is getting in on the April Fools' Day fun.

The "Used to Love You" songstress shared a picture of an ultrasound on Instagram Friday morning, telling fans she's pregnant with a baby girl. Her tomfoolery is another response to the tabloid covers that have claimed she's pregnant with boyfriend Blake Shelton's baby. InTouch magazine claimed the No Doubt singer was expecting a "miracle baby" at 46, which Shelton shot down.

"I think it's awfully early to be talking about that, don't you?" he said in an interview.

Stefani also poked fun at their alleged baby in the music video for "Make Me Like You." In the video, which featured a couple of tributes to her country-crooning boyfriend, she holds up a tabloid that reads, "Gwen Pregnant With Alien Baby!" Her face shows one of shock and awe, clearly proving that she is not pregnant.

The couple has turned to social media time and time again to publicly support each other and dispel rumors. When Stefani released her latest album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, Shelton tweeted his purchases (five copies!) and wrote, "I may have gone overboard…"

Stefani certainly isn't the first star to make a large April Fools' Joke, nor will she be the last. Last year Joe Jonas posted a picture of an ultrasound on Twitter and joked he and Hailee Steinfeld were expecting their "first." In 2015, The Bachelor star Catherine Lowe posted a photo that insinuated she was pregnant with her and Sean Lowe's first child as an April Fools' joke. That didn't sit well with many followers who felt she was being insensitive towards women who suffer from infertility.

Harry Potter star Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) made some fanfic readers' hearts skip a beat when he posted a photo of he and Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) lying together, shirtless.

"May as well just say it. We're together now x #drarry," he captioned the pic. They do say there is a thin line between love and hate!

What do you think of Stefani's joke?
