BRITNEY Spears and fiancée Sam Asghari teased a "new addition to the family" in a cryptic Instagram video, suggesting a baby was on the way, but fans were quick to crack the case.
The Toxic singer, 40, appeared with her back to the camera in the clip.
She rocked side to side, holding a bottle in her hand while standing in front of a grand Christmas tree.
Britney teased in the caption: "New addition to the family.
"guess if it's a boy or a girl."
She went on to say: "thank you again baby @samasghari !!!!!"
Sam replied in the comments with several shocked faces, but fans weren't falling for it.
While the duo have spoken on several occasions about wanting a baby, it appears their new addition is a pet.

A sliver of what appears to be a tail can be seen sticking out from beyond Britney's side in the video.
One fan commented: "I think its a baby puppy!"
Another questioned: "Kitten??"
A third wrote: "I am thinking a kitten."
Other commenters simply praised Britney for her ability to "troll" the internet, with one writing: "Queen of trolling the internet" and another calling her "trollney."
The pop star has made it no secret that she wants to have another child – specifically a daughter – with her longtime partner.
An insider close to the singer told The Sun she has "talked about wanting a baby girl for years."
The source went on: "Britney definitely wants more kids and she would be so happy and grateful with another son but deep down, her desire is to be a mama to a little girl.
"She wants to pass down her dresses and take her daughter to dance class, things her sons are not interested in."
The insider added: "It could potentially happen soon but that's not her main focus right now. They both want children together and now there's nothing stopping her."
The source maintained that if Britney and Sam do have children, they will "absolutely not" have a relationship with her parents, Jamie and Lynne Spears.
Per the insider: "Not in the foreseeable future, anyway. If and when she has a baby, Britney will do everything to protect him or her and raise the child in a safe environment.
"It's no secret that having those people around is not a safe space."
Britney is already mom to two boys, Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15.
She shares her sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
Britney and Sam are more focused on their wedding plans than having children right now.
The duo have sparked speculation that they're already married.
Earlier this month, Sam called the award winning musician his "wife" as he shared a series of photos of them together on her 40th birthday.
