According to Williford's prank post, exactly one month ago this year, they decided to get a DNA test and the result confirmed the suspicions.

''One month ago we decided to get a DNA test to finally put the rumours to rest. We were both excited to get the result only to find out we are related. ''We found out we were brother and sister. Yes, I was just as shocked as you guys.''

Williford's post has gone viral and garnered over 14,000 comments.

However, another social media user, Toni Sutton, revealed Williford was only playing a joke on the internet.

Sutton wrote: "The funniest part about Toya’s post is that they were mad when they thought it was true and then they got super mad when they found out it was a joke. All they had to do is research. She posts jokes about them favouring at least once a month. Go like and share her YouTube and business pages. Make that go viral. She will keep you entertained!"
