Jilted lover wore fake baby bump and lied about pregnancy for nine months to stalk her ex-boyfriend – Bukipress


- Advertisment -

A JILTED lover wore a fake baby bump and lied about her pregnancy for nine months to stalk her ex-boyfriend.

Jaclyn McGowan, 36, kept up the bizarre lies and even demanded cash for baby supplies from her ex Jamie Aitken after their brief relationship ended in 2019.

From June until February 2020, McGowan, from Blairgowrie, Perthshire, would contact her ex-boyfriend and his mum to discuss baby names and due dates.

Perth Sheriff Court heard today that the 36-year-old’s deception was so detailed that she had even given the non-existent baby a name, Noah.

She admitted that between 1 June 2019 and 29 February last year she engaged in a course of conduct which caused fear or alarm to a man and members of his family.

At one point, she arrived at Mr Aitken’s workplace in Dundee to discuss her pregnancy while wearing a prosthetic baby bump.

She sent him a picture of a cot and requested he give her £300 to pay for it.

At one point, she also told him that she was having a miscarriage.

The 36-year-old also contacted Mr Aitken’s mum, Wendy – telling her that her son would not be attending prenatal appointments with her.


She sent Wendy fake baby scans and discussed details of made up pregnancy-related appointments with her.

She carried on the act by telling Mrs Aitken she would be able to play a part in bringing her “grandson” Noah up after his birth on March 28, 2020.

McGowan also showed up to her ex’s brother’s workplace – telling the soon-to-be “uncle” that he could “play a part in the boy’s life.”

She admitted to turning up at Corrie Aitken’s workplace “whilst wearing a prosthetic baby bump.”

McGowan has admitted to a charge of stalking and will be sentenced next month.  

Solicitor Mike Tavendale told the court: “She now enters a plea of guilty to the amended charge.

“Looking simply at the terms of the libel, this is a case which will require reports.”

He said his client had a number of issues, while fiscal depute Lisa Marshall confirmed that McGowan had no previous convictions.

Sheriff Neil Bowie said: “I can see it is an unusual charge in itself.

“Sentence will have to be deferred for a criminal justice social work report.”
