Heidi Klum and her America's Got Talent co-stars may like to fool around on set, but one of their comic bits received a mixed response from fans.

The supermodel was captured in a backstage photograph shared by Howie Mandel sporting a pregnancy belly, which fellow judge Sofia Vergara was seen kissing.

It was intended to imply that the 49-year-old was expecting, with the Canadian comic even writing in his caption: "Congratulations. @heidiklum Co-workers @sofiavergara and I are the first [to] know. #agt"

Sofia even took to her Instagram Stories with the photo and wrote: "I'm going to be an aunt," while Heidi reposted it, although it turns out it was all in jest.

The bit was intended for Saturday aka April Fool's day, with the trio taking the opportunity to make the most of it while they were filming the new season of AGT together and Heidi getting her hands on a prosthetic belly.

However, the gag got a split reception, as some didn't find the joke particularly funny, stating that it bordered on the insensitive.

One even commented on Howie's photo: "Pregnancy jokes aren't really funny anymore," while another said: "I so HATE this day of the year!!"

Many others found the joke funny and appreciated it for being a light-hearted gag, as one wrote: "Since I just saw her last week at the AGT taping, I knew this was an April fool's joke," and one follower also added: "Loved it. Great April fool's joke! Good to see a good joke nowadays."

He said: "She walks through life with this type of humility that allows her to move so gracefully through it all and she has an innate understanding of people in general and people's feelings." 

On him and Heidi's parenting skills, he added: "I'd like to think, as a parent, that we have – between her mother and myself – that we've instilled some of that in her. But she can do no wrong in my eyes and she's quite wonderful."
