A Canadian man who thought his girlfriend was pregnant with quintuplets was devastated on delivery day, when a Montreal hospital told him she wasn't even pregnant.

Paul Servat, 35, furnished a nursery in his home with five cribs and had picked out names for the babies. Most of the baby items were donated to the family through Facebook.

"I lost everything, it was my whole life," Servat said.

His girlfriend, Barbara Bienvenue, 37, lied to him for 34 weeks. But Bienvenue was actually convinced she was pregnant. Bienvenue's belly swelled and her breasts began lactating, a condition known as false pregnancy, or pseudocyesis. Symptoms include all the same symptoms of a real pregnancy.

Over time, Bienvenue told Servat she was having twins, then triplets, then quadruplets and finally said she was expecting quintuplets.

"I'll return all these things to people who sent them or give them (away)," Servat said of the baby items. "I'm a good person and I have nothing to do with these lies."
