A 2009 American Romantic Comedy Made-for-TV Movie directed by Lara Shapiro that has a young woman (Lindsay Lohan) faking a pregnancy in order to avoid losing her job.

The movie also stars Luke Kirby, Bridgit Mendler, Chris Parnell, Cheryl Hines, Kevin Covais, Aaron Yoo, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Willie Garson.

It aired on July 19, 2009 on ABC Family.

Tropes for the film:

  • Fake Pregnancy: The entire plot. Thea lies about being pregnant so she won't be fired from her job.
  • I Want You to Meet an Old Friend of Mine: Hines and Lohan previously worked together on Herbie: Fully Loaded.
    • Ana Ortiz and Lohan also previously worked together on Ugly Betty.
  • Pillow Pregnancy: Thea does this with one of her couch cushions, in front of a room full of baby shower guests who until that moment had thought she was genuinely pregnant.
  • Tagline: "Some stories just keep on growing".
