Nick Cannon tried to pull a fast one on his fans by posting photos of a fake proposal to baby mama Bre Tiesi.

The aspiring rapper shared images of a diamond ring on Instagram Thursday along with a photo of the couple embracing.

He captioned the post: "I said I would never do it again but... Finally doing what the world wants me to do..."

Cannon was a trending topic on social media as fans were convinced he proposed to the mother of his 8th child. But the proposal was staged to promote his new single "I Do."

"I Do" is off of his latest album, The Explicit Tape: Raw & B.

Cannon's followers left over 8,000 comments under the post.

One follower asked "Which one is this? We can't keep up."

The father-of-8 is expecting a child with Tiesi any day now, and at least 5 more unborn babies with 5 women.

Nick was only married once - to Mariah Carey, the mother of his first set of twins. They tied the knot in 2008 and divorced in 2016.
