But he DOES have a big announcement.

Okay, so if you don't know who Tom Fletcher is, let me get you up to speed. 

Tom is in a very popular British band called McFly. He is the proud father of two really cute kids named Buzz Fletcher and Buddy Bob Fletcher he has A LOT going on. 

He plays in the band, has a budding YouTube career and is a published author. Tom's latest book, however, is the reason fans went wild Monday night. Instead of making a normal announcement that he has a book on the way, Tom faked fans out with a "birth vlog video" aaaaand it's exactly what you would expect from Tom Fletcher. 

First thing is first, Tom's wife Giovanna was actually quite pregnant up until a couple weeks ago.

That's why, when he tweeted this, people kind of freaked out.

Tom's 'live from the delivery room' video consists of some major side eye from Giovanna, trumpets, a dance number, a ukelele. THE WORKS. It takes a serious bite out of the birth vlog genre of YouTube videos which often features fathers acting just as ridiculous as Tom. Except, you know, they're having a baby IRL.

Of course the real announcement is that Tom has a children's book out at the end of the year called The Christmasauras. Clearly he has made it a family affair. You could almost say that it's a labor of love from the whole Fletcher clan.

Catch the hilarious fake out below. When DOES Tom ever announce things normally?
