- Hailey Bieber shut down pregnancy speculation (opens in new tab) with an Instagram comment on Monday.
- Husband Justin Bieber posted a photo of the couple with the caption "mom and dad," which sparked a frenzy of speculation in the comments.
- But Hailey cleared things up, writing, "I think u should maybe change this caption to *Dog Mom and Dad* before anyone gets it twisted."
When you're as famous as Hailey and Justin Bieber, an Instagram caption is never simply an Instagram caption, but rather a potential clue to be carefully dissected by a fanbase of millions. Which is why, when Justin posted a photo of the couple Monday with the caption "mom and dad," a frenzy erupted in the comments. Specifically, a frenzy of speculation that the Biebers were expecting their first child. A small sample of comments: "Wait what? MOM AND DAD?!; "Baby on the way?"; "WDYM MOM AND DAD."
Hailey, however, cleared things up with a comment of her own, writing, "I think u should maybe change this caption to *Dog Mom and Dad* before anyone gets it twisted." (Their dog, named Oscar (opens in new tab), is extremely cute and good, if you weren't already aware.) So there you have it: No Bieber baby as of yet!

The Biebers have spoken about their desire to become parents in the past, with Hailey telling (opens in new tab)Vogue Arabia (opens in new tab) back in 2018, "I love kids and I can’t wait to have my own. I would say that now, that’s a closer reality, but definitely not anytime soon."
Justin, meanwhile, has hinted about his own family vision. Sharing a photo of himself and Hailey at Disney World (opens in new tab) on Instagram in 2019, he wrote, "Love dates with you baby.. one day Ill be doing daddy daughter dates..... not hinting at anything soon I’m not in a rush. i just wanna enjoy you by yourself for a while!" Sounds like they're both on the same page!
