American singer/actress Miley Cyrus' father Billy Ray Cyrus squashed rumours suggesting that his daughter is expecting a baby with her boyfriend Patrick Schwarzenegger.

The 22-year-old former Disney star had posted a photoshopped picture of herself getting an ultrasound with her assistant and best friend Cheyne Thomas as the doctor, on Instagram. The fake sonogram showed that she was pregnant with a "pizza baby".

"The rumors are true...... @cheythom," the Wrecking Ball singer captioned the image.

Following that, the 53-year-old country music singer and songwriter joined the fun and teased in a tweet that he is expecting a grandchild.

The Achy Breaky Heart singer later shared Miley's fake sonogram image.

Magazines are endlessly coming up with Miley's pregnancy stories.

Last December, Life & Style had claimed that the We Can't Stop singer is expecting a baby with the 21-year-old son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, and has given up drinking and smoking pot since sometime.

Miley took to her Instagram to respond to pregnancy rumours and posted.

"those 3 days I was off Instagram I got pregnant and went to rehab. I was am super busy sorry guys. I know how much you missed my edits," she wrote.

The rumors are true...... @cheythom ??
