We’ve all heard this story before. In fact, it has been handed down through the bible for generations and if it’s true, then even Mary had a hard time convincing people that she was pregnant with Jesus back in the day! Now, it’s happening all over again in our modern times. This time, her name is Haley and she swears that she is 8 ½ months pregnant with baby Jesus! Her mother, Kristi, is fed up with this nonsense and attempts to convince her 19-year-old daughter, Haley, otherwise by submitting her to 6 pregnancy tests all of which conclude that she is NOT pregnant. Least of all with baby Jesus!
Haley has even been taken to a clinic for evaluation and all those tests were negative as well. However, Haley is still convinced that she is carrying the child of God himself. She even claims to be able to feel the fetus inside of her womb. She also has this to say, “I know my pregnancy is real. I’ve gained at least 22 pounds. I was sleeping one night and my baby punched the bottom of my stomach and kicked me and I can feel his head right here, right below my belly button.”
Unfortunately, her mother tells the world that her daughter is a compulsive liar and that she had told other, elaborate lies in the past including one about being on ‘American Idol’ and also that the famous rapper, Eminem, is her biological father. Therefore, we can only conclude that she is lying again about this pregnancy. However, Haley insists that she is even though, according to her, “My family, my friends, my pastors at church, they don’t believe that I’m pregnant, “ she says, “I know it’s Jesus. I don’t care if my family disowns me. It really comes down to if you’re a true believer in Jesus or not. I don’t care what the home pregnancy test or a doctor says. When I give birth to my baby, no one is going to deny him because he’s my savior.”
She’s convinced that she is pregnant with Baby Jesus.
Delusional? Perhaps. Even so, Haley has appeared on the ‘Dr. Phil Show’ in order to set the record straight. She even had an ultrasound conducted by Dr. Travis Stork from ‘The Doctors’ and the result, again, was negative. There is no baby growing inside of her womb and she had been told that any so-called “movement” that she experiences is simply from distended bowels. Therefore, everyone continues to tell her that she is NOT pregnant!
Still, she refuses to believe it and sadly, it was discovered that her sister, Adriana, was abused as a child to which she sought help. Haley, on the other hand, never sought help for any abuse she may have encountered as a child. This could be why she is behaving like this now. Therefore, Dr. Phil has provided Haley with a psychologist so that she can get the help that she needs because everyone is concerned about her well being and wishes for her to move forward from this state of mind that she is in.
