Chrishell Stause had her fans fooled!

On Saturday, the Selling Sunset star, 42, shared a throwback behind-the-scenes photo of herself wearing a prosthetic baby bump on social media. In the selfie, she cradled her faux growing belly while explaining in her caption that the picture was taken on the set of You’re Not Supposed To Be Here, a Lifetime movie she recently completed.

However, it seems her supporters bypassed that information and immediately got excited about what they thought to be the reality realtor announcing that she was pregnant with her first child.

“The way I SCREAMED!! Don’t tease me like that 😭😭😭😭,” Stause’s fellow Netflix star Francesca Farago commented.

“Congrats! You’re going to be a mom!!!” one fan wrote. Another added, “Omg!!!!! So so sooo happy for you!!!+ I can't believe you guys did it! So happy and proud!!!!!!”

In the caption that everyone seemingly overlooked, Stause explained that her Instagram upload was a late post that she wasn’t “able to promote” during the SAG-AFTRA strike.

The next slide in the upload showed the official movie poster for the film, which premieres on Monday.

The film follows “pregnant lesbian couple Zoe (Chrishell Stause) and Kennedy (Diora Baird) ” who go on a “cabin getaway in the woods” but are soon met by a town full of residents who don’t agree with their same-sex relationship, per a synopsis on Lifetime’s website. The couple is "completely unprepared" for what happens next.

It’s likely that fans believed Stause and wife G Flip were expecting. The two tied the knot in May after one year of dating.

"They found love together in an unexpected place but nothing has ever felt more real to them," a source told PEOPLE at the time.

Last month, the couple shared their holiday plans with PEOPLE.

"Our traditions have changed. Our family has kind of moved and shifted, and people have moved around, so now we're spending Thanksgiving and Christmas in Australia when it's cold and miserable where my family's at," Stause said while discussing her partnership with 21 Seeds Tequila for a Friendsgiving dinner. "And then we will go over that way when it's nice and warm."
