Sometimes, it's hard to know which celebrity rumors have credibility...and which rumors are just that. But it's a little easier to tell when the celebrity sets the record straight themselves!
Fast forward to this week: Miley Cyrus put Daily Mail on blast for claiming that she was pregnant. Spoiler alert: she's not. Yet rumors began circulating, as so-called unnamed sources apparently came forward and broke the news. Miley was quick to set the record straight, and she did it with humor, no less! Because there's a pretty hilarious photoshopped joke that went along with her response.
See just what Miley said, and the events that started this rumor mill!
Miley Cyrus (and beau Liam Hemsworth) were just recently headline news.
They've been an item since 2009.
Of course, they found their way back together.
But a couple of celebrity news outlets took it even further.Because "news" broke that Miley and Liam were apparently expecting a baby together.
The story was first published on 'OK Magazine's' website.OK Magazine even cited an anonymous source, who apparently told the publication that "Miley's over the moon because she's carrying Liam's baby. It's a girl, which is what she and Liam hoped for."
Pretty in-depth, right?OK Magazine also reported that the baby news was what prompted the couple to get married.
Honestly, it's kind of funny how much detail the 'source' put into this.As OK Magazine put it:
"They were on the phone [shortly after they lost their house] with Liam in California and Miley in Tennessee," our source exclusively reveals.
Liam said, "I wish I had some good news." And Miley said, "I have news that will put all of this in perspective."'
If we hadn't heard the truth directly from the source, this kind of testimonial would potentially be pretty convincing!
The source even picked out a name.Because according to the now-debunked story, the couple was hoping to name their child "Cassidy." So, I guess Liam and Miley already have one baby name suggestion if they eventually do decide to start a family?
A previous interview was also brought up.In an interview with Glamour Magazine in 2009, Miley brought up the subject of starting a family. When asked where she'd be in a decade, the singer answered, "Hopefully I'll be settled: making movies, living in a house, maybe even married."
From there, Daily Mail picked up the story.

But here's the thing: there's really no pregnancy.Surprise! Just another celebrity rumor.
And since the chatter was so widespread, Miley spoke out herself.In a delightfully 'punny' tweet, Cyrus set the record straight: she and Liam are super happy – as newlyweds and people who love each other are – but she's definitely not pregnant.
