Although  Lindsay Lohan is hard at work in Brazil – doing whatever it is LiLo does – she found the time to squeeze in an April Fools' Day prank just under the wire.

"Its official. Pregnant...," the 26-year-old tweeted at 10:35 p.m. P.T.

Showing her excellent comedic timing, she waited a good 12 hours before letting us know that she was kidding, writing, "April Fools. Where's everyone's sense of humor?"

Good thing it was a joke — after all, she faces 90 days in a lockdown rehab facility this spring as part of her violation probation. And we're not sure they'd tend to her pregnancy cravings the same way LiLo's personal assistant would!

Lindsay wasn't the only celebrity proving to be in on the joke Monday. Here are some other star pranks that made us LOL.

The side-by-side photo comparisons Mrs. Blake Shelton posted were priceless.

Snooki Says "I Do": The "Jersey Shore" star made jaws drop when she took to her blog to announce she had eloped with Jionni LaValle – and posted a photo of their "magical day," complete with gaudy tiara. It seemed even her fiancé was caught off-guard by the gag. He tweeted, "Mannn you fooled me!"

Sharon Osbourne Announces Her Pregnancy: After a two-week absence from "The Talk," the 60-year-old wife of Ozzy Osbourne returned to the show and explained she had been in Europe seeking treatment at an in vitro fertilization clinic. And, surprise, it worked! From her teary-eyed pregnancy announcement to her co-hosts showering her with hugs, Mrs. O delivered a well-executed hoax.

Seth Rogen and James Franco Release "Pineapple Express 2" Trailer: The fellas went all out creating a movie trailer touting the sequel to the original stoner flick. Rogen later apologized to his Twitter followers who were disappointed that it was a gag. "Please don't be mad at me, guys," he tweeted. "I couldn't resist."

Mike Tyson Removes His Face Tattoo: The boxing champ led his followers to believe he was having his famed face tattoo removed. "At the doctors office this morning. Getting this tattoo removed from my face," he tweeted."This is going to be painful." Soon after he admitted to the prank, writing, "Ok. April Fools. There is no #GoodbyeMikeTysonTattoo. This tattoo is with me forever." We guess that's good news?
