American singer/actress Miley Cyrus has responded to an American tabloid's claim that she is pregnant with Canadian singer/songwriter Justin Bieber's baby.

Life & Style's cover story reported that the 22-year-old former Disney star and Selena Gomez were "pregnant by the same man."

The Wrecking Ball singer posted a photo of the magazine cover on her official Instagram account.

"And by the same man we mean @justinbieber," she jokingly captioned the image.

Last December, the same publication had claimed that the We Can't Stop singer is pregnant with boyfriend Patrick Schwarzenegger's child, and has given up drinking and smoking pot since sometime.

"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.

Last month, Miley's father Billy Ray Cyrus squashed rumours suggesting that his daughter is expecting a baby with the 21-year-old son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver.

Following weeks of speculation, Miley went public with her romance with Patrick during the USC Trojans football game against the California Golden Bears by putting on a very passionate display.

The pair kissed and cuddled in full view of hundreds of spectators at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Patrick's sister Katherine Schwarzenegger recently opened up about the couple's relationship.

"I approve of whatever makes my brother happy," she told E! News. "He's a 21-year-old college kid, how could he not be [happy]."
