Well, it was all actually a misunderstanding.

But it seemed plausible enough to have the whole internet laughing.

One mom took to Facebook Marketplace to seel her old couch.

She wanted it gone fast.

And she captioned it as such.

“Need gone today.”

There was just one problem.

Instead of attaching pictures of the couch, she attached some pictures of her baby!

Lucy Battle told LeedsLive: “I just somehow managed to upload the wrong photo when I was choosing them from my camera roll and unfortunately it was of Oscar!

“I realized when everyone started commenting and messaging me and then I couldn’t delete it either.”

“It worked out though because one of the messages was someone actually enquiring about the sofa! But most of them were people making jokes about me giving away my son.”

“I didn’t expect it to go so far!”

“Thanks all for being nice though and understanding this was a genuine mistake,” she wrote.

“I don’t want to give away my child.”
