Photos of Rani Mukerji's baby go viral, but guess what? The pictures are FAKE!

We all rejoiced when Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji and director Aditya Chopra announced that they were getting married. Then we celebrated some more when we found out they had a baby girl. And then we celebrated once more only to be disappointed, finding out that what we thought were leaked photos of their baby girl, Adira, were actually fake photographs. What a buzz kill!

The viral photos were sent via an Instagram account, @iamranimukerji which turned out to be a fake Instagram account. But nonethless, for a brief moment the internet believed that the account was real and photos of the baby were real too. The news was confirmed via an official statement released by Yash Raj Films.

"This is to inform you that Rani Mukerji is not on any social media platform and has never been. There are several fake accounts that keep cropping up we would like to request you to not pay any heed to them or the content they put up as it is all fake."

So this just begs us to look at a few other "fake" moments that captured the imagination and wonder of millions, albeit only for a short while.
