Singer’s dad announces on Twitter: “I’m going to be a grandfather”

Billy Ray Cyrus announced on Twitter that he is going to be grandfather. 

The country singer made the revelation on Twitter, writing: : “’m going to be a grandfather, Call me Papaw.”

Fans of his daughter Miley instantly started to think that the singer could be expecting a baby with her boyfriend, Patrick Schwarzenegger. 

However, Billy Ray obviously realised his daughter may not be too happy that he hadn't made it clear it was all just a joke and so he once again to to his Twitter account to verify that he was just kidding. 

Sharing a hilarious snap of a fake ultrasound Miley had posted on her Instagram days previously, Billy Ray wrote: “Yep..Papaw Cyrus.”

So, it looks as if Billy Ray’s tweets were all just a reaction to the tabloid stories doing the rounds at the moment that Miley is pregnant. 

Well, at least we know how excited Billy Ray will be when some happy baby news does eventually come around!
