(Scroll down for video) A couple prepared 5 cribs in their baby nursery and chose 5 names, as they got ready to welcome their 5 children.
Paul Servat, 37, of Quebec, was very excited when his girlfriend Barbara Bienvenue, 37, told him she was pregnant with quintuplets.
Bienvenue gave the excited father-to-be the honor of choosing their names. His parents were also very much looking forward to being grandparents.
The couple of Montreal, Canada, told their local newspaper about their pregnancy. People and local stores showered them with baby gifts.
The woman showed all signs of pregnancy. She had morning sickness and her body was growing rapidly.
However, the man’s life came crashing down when he learned that there were no babies in his girlfriend’s belly.
In her “9th month,” when the woman “went into labor,” Servat took her to the hospital. That is when he was told that there was no record of the woman being pregnant.
A blood test confirmed that Bienvenue was never pregnant. She was hospitalized and is being kept under psychiatric observation.
Servat, who was devastated by the fake pregnancy, said that he wants nothing to do with Bienvenue.
