Watch: April the Giraffe becomes a mother for the fourth time!
After months of anticipation around the world, April the Giraffe gave birth to her baby at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, Saturday morning. The baby boy is April’s fourth calf, the first one she has delivered in the animal park. The birth was streamed live on the YouTube channel of Animal Adventure Park and over a million people tuned in to see it.
The live-streaming of 15-year-old April began earlier this year because the zoo was unsure when exactly she would give birth. Her pregnancy lasted 15 months. Animal Adventure Park announced on Twitter that April gave birth to a male calf.
