It didn't take long for the tweet to ping around the world.
"Its official. Pregnant..." said the three simple words.
But coming from the verified Twitter account of a troubled actress whose every move elicits intense scrutiny, they were enough to send the Internet into a tizzy.
Its official. Pregnant...
â€” Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan) April 2, 2013
Shortly after the tweet appeared on @lindsaylohan, it became a worldwide trending topic.Â Within an hour, it had been retweeted more than 9,000 times.
Was it an April Fool's joke?
It was, after all, 10:35 p.m. April 1 on the Pacific Coast when it was posted.
But that didn't stop the snickering.
Some poked fun at her well-publicized battle with booze.
Lindsay Lohan tweeted she's pregnant, which is great because now she'll have someone to get drunk with

Then, there were those who thought that if true, it could actually be a wonderful thing for Lohan.

The actress has Â spent 250 days in five rehab facilities since January 2007, including one long court-ordered stint after a failed drug test.
She has appeared in court at least 21 times before four Los Angeles judges who have now found her in violation of probation six times and sentenced her to a total of nine months in jail.
And she has spent about two weeks behind bars in six trips to the Los Angeles County jail, served 35 days under house arrest and worked about 67 days of community service at the county morgue.
She isÂ dating Avi Snow, the guitarist with City of the Sun.
What did he tweet about?Â A tour stop in Missouri.
To bad the liberal media doesn't give the President this kind of scrutiny
What? How did that comment pop into your mind after reading this article? There are ten fold the amount of articles about POTUS as compared to LL, in reply to your comment. But I think you may be fixating on Obama at this point that may not be healthy.
Obsess much, John? Maybe you should try reading the actual news if you'd like spend more time scrutinizing Obama. Or did the government/liberal media/united nations force you to click this LL link?
Yes, John it's obviously all a Liberal leftist agenda to brainwash the masses. Some people are sooooo DUMB!
Still looking for that birth certificate ?
Forgive me, I'm developmentally challenged.
POOR LITTLE Teabagger – Gots his feelins rumbly cuz the Scary Black Man is in the White House
Time to get over it John. Obama is a two time winner and that makes you a two time loser. Read 'em and weep.
So Nobama successfully stole the election twice. That only proves that he is a very effective thief.
Hopefully, Lindsey's post was just a joke. I doubt her Adderall consumption & pregnancy will mix very well.......
So, she finally found someone with a 10 foot pole?
Tweeted over 9000!
I wonder if she can even recall which drunken, one-night stand she got knocked up on. Avi should have DNA done the day that kid is born.
What a joke
And his race would matter why?
I am sure the baby will be a lovely 8 pound bouncing baby blob of silicone
Avi Snow must be on something to want to put anything in any of her orifices.
Lindsey pregnant ? Well I hope she cleans up her act so she can be around for her baby's first 12 Steps.........
If this is true, I pity the child. What role models for a mother and grandparents.
She can give birth to a nine pound tongue..
Totally true. The Good Book has foretold it: "..And the deviil will be born unto a woman of shaky virtue, knowing not who planted the seed.."
Under the table in Brazil right????
She's not pregnant. No guy would get near her.
