Aspiring actress/popstar Michelle Marie Gopaul told friends she was preggers and even registered for baby gifts, even though she had no bun in her oven.
Instead, she swiped 1-month-old Roma Patel last Thursday night in Toronto. Gopaul placed ads for an infant to star in a Bollywood movie and offered $7,500 to find a baby girl "of Indian background."
Viral and Sejal Patel decided to bring their daughter Roma. The actress loved the child and asked to take her to a private room to see how she reacted to strangers. Then, she sneaked out a back door and hopped in a cab with the baby.
"It's a girl!! I can't wait until my little pincess [sic] Valentina arrives!!" boasted Gopaul online.
After a four-hour search, the baby was found. Gopaul was arrested and charged with child abduction. She is being held without bail.
