Zayn Malik’s younger sister Safaa has revealed that her pregnancy announcement was an April 1 joke.
The 18-year-old had led fans to believe she was expecting her second child earlier in the day with an Instagram post, but later clarified that she was not welcoming another baby into the family.
Safaa, welcomed her daughter Zaneyah with husband Martin Tiser 14 months earlier, had taken to social media on Thursday to reveal her ‘happy news’ through a sonogram next to a pair of small shoes with the caption: ‘Coming soon.’

But Safaa later shared a cartoon image of a jester along with the caption, ‘I’M NOT PREGNANT. Happy April Fools everyone. ‘
In her original post, Safaa put two photos of the ultrasound on a white fluffy pillow next to light brown fringed shoes.
Safaa welcomed her daughter with husband Martin last January, just four months after the couple tied the knot.

In announcing the birth of Zaneyah, the 1D star’s sister uploaded a sweet photo of her baby girl with a baby bred and hat with her name and weight – 8 pounds 3oz – written over the image.
Safaa, who bound the knot in a traditional Nikkah ceremony, celebrated her first pregnancy with a pink themed baby shower among her friends and family.
She appeared in a series of images on social media wearing a sash around her neck that read, ‘It’s a baby girl,’ celebrating with her loved ones in front of a flower wall.

Days after the celebration, Zayn shared photos as he flew back to the UK to see his family and no doubt congratulated Safaa on her pregnancy.
It is not known if Zayn, 28, attended the special day and he was not thought to be attending her wedding.
Proud mom Trisha previously shared some snaps of the newlyweds on Instagram alongside the caption ‘My baby girls big day’ (sic) ‘.

Zayn’s father Yaser, sisters Doniya, 28, and Waliyha, 22, attended the ceremony, but the ex One Direction star still appeared to be in the US
The Pillowtalk singer’s family still lives in Bradford and he supports his parents and sisters financially.
Zayn himself became a father when he welcomed his beautiful daughter Khai into the world with his longtime girlfriend Gigi Hadid, 25, late last year.
The singer’s other sister Waliyha, meanwhile, tied the knot with ex-con Junaid Khan, 24, in December.
Earlier this month, her husband Junaid claimed their marriage didn’t create a “ big rift ” between them and the One Direction star’s family.
The former double-glazing salesman broke his silence on the topic on social media, saying he wouldn’t talk about the singer’s or his father-in-law’s Yaser’s decision not to attend the wedding, claiming the couple are “ happy ‘.
The unemployed Junaid shared a series of photos with Zayn’s sister, and the couple looked in love with wedding photos and several other locations.

Underneath the collage, he wrote, ‘To add to this, I will never answer personal questions about Zayn and my father-in-law!
‘You can assume what you do [want] we know the truth and we’re glad that’s all that matters. ‘(sic)
Seemingly in solidarity with his post, his wife also shared a meme about “ people attach to their dislike of you, ” as she said trolls should “ see someone ” about their problems.
She wrote, ‘Sorry, but after what I just saw, this has to be reposted [laughing emojis] OMG embarrassing getting help !!! See someone about your problems [sic]
“Maybe get a job!” Zayn’s other sister Waliyha (pictured), meanwhile tied the knot with ex-con Junaid Khan, 24, in December
Musician Zayn and his father refused to attend their wedding due to concerns about Khan’s criminal past and precarious financial position.
While the artist stayed in the US, Yaser did not leave the Bradford family home and walked just 70 meters to the ceremony, which took place at the home of his youngest daughter, who lives just six doors away.
Family sources have revealed that the father-of-one did not even speak to Waliyha over the phone or send gifts because he was so upset about her choice of husband.
MailOnline revealed that the newlyweds live in what amounts to a glorified outbuilding in the yard of Yaser’s home, but he has disowned them and refuses to acknowledge their union.

The arrangement for them to live at the back of the family home was made by Zayn’s mother Tricia, who continues to support her daughter and her new husband.
At the same time, Khan’s relatives claimed that his family had disowned him and Waliyha as well and complained that they consider her to be ‘disrespectful’ after she got involved in an ugly argument with Khan’s mother, Amreen Begum.
A relative who did not want to be named said: ‘Waliyha had a huge fight with Junaid outside his house during the summer. She hit him and yelled at him.
Amreen was there and heard it all. She found the behavior disgusting and believes that Waliyha has no respect for Asian culture. She told Junaid she didn’t want a daughter-in-law to act like that. ‘
Junaid spent five years in Lindholme Prison in Doncaster for knocking an elderly woman into the car with a screwdriver.
