Fooled ya! Celebs got in on the April Fools' Day fun on Wednesday, April 1, posting tricks on social media.

Bachelor alum Catherine Giudici pulled a fast one on her Instagram followers with a deceiving picture in the morning. The 28-year-old wife of Bachelor star Sean Lowe shared a photo of a woman's body (presumably her own) with a tiny baby bump. "17 weeks :)," she captioned the shot.

17 weeks 🙂

While many followers identified the picture as an April Fools' joke immediately, some took issue with the prank, calling it "offensive," "immature," and "insensitive." A rep for Giudici confirmed to Us Weekly that the post was an April Fools' Day trick. 

Former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich used the holiday to push his politics and call out President Barack Obama

"After a lot of thought I have changed my mind. President Obama has a strong, solid, thoughtful foreign policy we should all support," the former congressman, 71, tweeted in the early hours of Wednesday morning. He let the message linger for just one minute before he followed up. "The previous tweet about President Obama's foreign policy is a sign it is April Fool's day."

Lucky magazine went all-out for its April Fools' Day gag, releasing three (fake) covers for an upcoming special issue. The fashion mag debuted a "100+ Stylish Animals" cover, starring Grumpy Cat, designer Karl Lagerfeld's cat Choupette, and Internet favorite dog Toast.

Crooner Sam Smith went simple, tweeting on Wednesday morning, "Guys I have some news… I'm straight." The openly gay Grammy winner wrote soon after, "April fools," adding a smiling emoji with tears.

Harry Potter star Tom Felton, who played the villainous Draco Malfoy in the movies, took to Instagram to share a steamy shirtless shot of himself with Harry actor Daniel Radcliffe. "May as well just say it. We're together now x #drarry," the Brit wrote.

May as well just say it. We're together now x #drarry
