The father of twin babies reportedly named Raekwon and Ghostface after two members of Wu Tang Clan has revealed that it was a stunt.

Dan Lieberman posted a picture of the newborn infants on Father's Day (June 15), which included birth certificates bearing the unusual names. It was picked up and reposted by Raekwon himself on his Instagram page.

Sharing the image, Raekwon wrote: "This is live, family named their twins Raekwon & ghostface!!! #wu4thebabies". On his Facebook page, Raekwon added: "Family named their twin babies after me n ghost!!! Real special!!!"

According to Gawker, the 'certificates' were not legitimate and the father of the babies, Dan Lieberman, has since taken to Facebook to admit that the whole thing was a hoax. In his post, he describes being retweeted by the Wu-Tang rapper as the second best Father's Day gift he could get.

Lieberman wrote: "I got the best father day gift I could get yesterday, but this is a close second. And for those wondering if we've lost our mind, this is just a joke, but we'll see how far the internet wants to carry it."

There had been a great deal of comment under Raekwon's original posts, ranging from people thinking Raekwon and Ghostface are great names for children to people who deem the Liebermans' actions irresponsible. One suggested "shoulda had triplets so it coulda been the young dirty bastard."
