"Let's go, you know the dance," her spouse adds. She reportedly startled her followers when they asked about what seemed to be a quiet announcement.

 She had to say out loud that the kid was not hers.

"Friends, the infant in the earlier tales is not my kid. All I am is a proud aunt. It wasn't any type of soft launch or announcement."
