Michael Strahan still has his tooth gap in April Fools’ joke

Surprise! The gap is back.

Two days after sending fans into a tailspin by claiming he closed the gap in his front teeth, Michael Strahan confirmed it was all one epic April Fools’ Day joke.

“I appreciate all the comments. I was surprised, to be honest with you, at how many people were like, ‘No! Don’t get rid of the gap, it’s your signature!’,” he said in a video posted on social media Thursday.

“I didn’t know so many people really cared … I appreciate all the love for the gap,” Strahan, 49, continued. “C’mon man! The gap is here to stay. Not going anywhere anytime soon … My mama likes it.”

The star pulled off the elaborate ruse with the help of Dr. Lee from Smile Design Manhattan, posting a video of himself at the dentist’s office as staffers took impressions of his teeth.

He then flashed his (temporary) new smile.

“That was a good one,” New York Giants player Sterling Shepard commented, while CC Sabathia, Ryan Phillippe, Lindsey Vonn and P.K. Subban all dropped laughing emojis on the post.

“Thank god!!! I was heartbroken,” one fan wrote.

“I knew it,” another added. “Long live the GAP.”
