Our Favorite Giraffe is Pregnant Again!
April is expecting again!!
I will admit, I was one of those people who took part in watching April every second that I could. I viewed the live videos on my phone while I was sitting at my desk job, working.
Jordon Patch of Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, announced the pregnancy this morning on NBC's TODAY show.
April took the world by storm last year while she was pregnant with her calf, Tajiri. The giraffe cam with over 232 million YouTube live views during a seven-week period.
Patch says the calf is due during the early part of spring around March.
This is now baby number five for April.
While TODAY was the one to break the news this morning, it's been a happy secret at Animal Adventure Park for a couple of weeks, according to TODAY. The very first hints that just maybe a baby was on the way came in the form of a video shared on the Harpursville, New York, facility's Facebook page late last month.
Patch told TODAY the park is very excited for another calf:
Every calf counts. Giraffe populations have declined by 40 percent in the past 30 years, so every calf born in a captive management program means something.
I volunteer to host April viewing parties!
