Jersey Shore stars JWOWW and Roger have been getting a lot of attention from tabloids and blogs alike after confirming their engagement (as Wetpaint Entertainment was the first to report). So Roger, clever gorilla that he is, decided to turn the tables on the tabs and play a little trick.

“Big news !!!” he tweeted on September 27. “@JENNIWOWW and I are excited to announce that very soon we are gonna be raising a baby.”

That’s pretty major, right? Sure, the happy couple has talked about having kids before, and Rodge has even joked about his kids playing with Lorenzo in the future. But to put it in announcement form makes it sound like they’re going to start throwing away the birth control and get right down to business.

… Or not. Turns out, Roger was punking us! In his next tweet, he wrote, “sorry got cut off. ... a baby carrot garden [in] our back yard. She's quite a green thumb.”

You got us, Roger!

Jersey Shore Season 6 will premiere on Thursday, October 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
