Pregnant ‘French’ tourist Natalie Amyot who appealed to find Australian one …

A woman who captured hearts by launching a moving video appeal1 to find the father of her unborn child has revealed it was a hoax. Filmed by the beach at Mooloolaba, on Australia’s sunshine coast, Natalie Amyot asked social media to help her find “the really cute guy” she met at a party on the last night of her holiday. But a day after the video was released, another clip was uploaded to her YouTube channel2 in which she admitted the appeal was actually a marketing ploy set up by Sunny Coast Social Media in Queensland.

The new clip opens with the 26-year-old announcing: “I found him”, before stepping aside for the social media company’s owner Andy Sellar. The revelation comes after doubts had been cast over the story of Ms Amyot, who was searching for a man she claimed got her pregnant on the last night of a three-month trip to Australia.
