April The Giraffe Is Expecting Her Fifth Baby
Last year, the entire world tuned in to watch April the giraffe give birth to a little baby calf during a Facebook Live and Youtube stream.
And it looks like the internet will be able to do it once again, as it has just been announced by Animal Adventure Park in Hapursville, New York that our April has a bun in the oven once again.
This is the giraffe's fifth pregnancy, and her baby daddy is Oliver, who fathered her son Tajiri last year.
The results of her pregnancy test were revealed on the Today show on Tuesday, and the congratulations are pouring in.
"The results are in," the park's owner, Jordan Patch, excitedly told Today.
He added: "We are having a baby!"

The gender of April's fifth baby is not yet known and it will only be revealed when she gives birth next year.
She's got no due date either, as a giraffe's pregnancy can last anywhere around 15 months at a time, but April's been known to carry her young for up to 19 months.
Jordan continued: "The average (gestation period) for a giraffe is 15 months.
"April likes to go 16, 17, 18 ... 19 months."
Congrats, April and Oliver.
