Howie Mandel is known for being quite the prankster, but two of his kids recently decided to give him a taste of his own medicine.

The 59-year-old comedian’s eldest daughter, Jackie Shultz, recently launched a hilarious family vlog titled Life With Jackie and made her father the butt of her joke in the latest episode.

The clip starts out with Jackie sitting next to her husband, Alex Shultz, announcing a bit of family news. “We just found out we’re about to be parents again for the second time. And I want to share this good news with my parents, but I can’t just tell them the normal way. My dad, Howie Mandel, is always the one pranking everyone else so it is my turn to prank him.” She continues, “I gave my positive test to my brother and I let him take care of the rest.” The video goes on to show Jackie’s brother, Alex, calling a family meeting during which he announces that he has gotten a girl pregnant from a one-night stand. He even produces the positive pregnancy test: “She’s Catholic so she won’t get rid of it.” The reaction that ensues is one of utter shock as Howie and his wife, Terry, try to process the news. When Terry asks, “Why did you have unprotected sex with her?” her son responds, “I didn’t. It broke.”

Just as the whole family tries to find some comedic relief in the situation, Jackie jumps in to set the record straight, letting her parents know that the pregnancy test actually belongs to her and the entire scenario was part of an elaborate prank.

Unfortunately for the “America’s Got Talent” judge, this isn’t the first time he’s been punked by his kids. Check out this video to see more of their epic pranks, and tune in to The Insider With Yahoo on TV tonight for the latest in entertainment news.
