"Teen Mom" star Farrah Abraham took to Twitter Monday where she announced that she was in the process of adoptng, but critics are speculating whether the tweet may have been a hoax.

The 21-year-old single mom revealed that she is adopting a baby boy, but fans could not help but notice that the tweet came on April 1st, which also happens to be April Fool's day.

"Big day for Sophia & I:) Were adopting a baby brother , Sophia is super excited xo! Adopting is a #blessing," Abraham tweeted.

The adoption tweet comes hot off the heels of a recent DWI scandal. On March 17, the MTV star was arrested and charged with DWI after reportedly blowing a .147 on a breathalyzer and she addressed the incident in a recent blog post.

"Now that the dust has settled and maybe you noticed there was no mug shot, no one got injured, no cars were totaled, and I received no felony charges maybe your ready to read what simply happened rather then regard to the over sensationalized, dramatic reporters regurgitated instigations," Abraham wrote.

The reality TV star attended a lingerie party at Halo Ultra Lounge in Omaha, Nebraska hours before her DWI bust. She adnitted to consuming alchol but insists she was not drunk.

"I know myself and I had not drank to the extent to be negligent," Abraham insisted. "I am certified to sell alcohol and bartend so I am very cautious and responsible regarding just a night out with drinking."

Some critics have questioned whether Abraham is fit to adopt a child particularly after receiving widespread criticism over her parenting methods.

In January, the reality TV star admitted to waxing her 3-year-old daughter's eyebrows after claiming that she had a "unibrow." Various critics immediately blasted Abraham for subjecting her child to an adult beauty procedure, suggesting that she was incapable of adequate parenting.
