  • April the Giraffe may be pregnant months after millions tuned in to watch her first birth

He finally emerged on April 15, weeks after Animal Adventure Park first began broadcasting from April's stall, promising viewers she was close to giving birth.

The long-necked sensation netted a massive fanbase over the course of her 15-month pregnancy earlier this year, scores of them eagerly following her journey on a social media livestream set up by the Harpursville zoo.

It's been seven months since millions tuned into a live stream of April's calf, Tajiri, being born.

In his TV appearance, Patch said April has been an awesome mother to baby Tajiri, who likes to be independent, thanks to his father Oliver.

Yemen has been immersed in a violent conflict between President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi's government and the Houthi Shia movement. People inspect the rubble of houses destroyed by earlier Saudi-led airstrikes in Sanaa, Yemen.


On Thursday's "Good Morning America" broadcast, Patch said April might be pregnant again.

The zoo wrote in an October Facebook post that April "has been cleared for another pregnancy and has our blessing to allow nature to take its course".

The park sold $20 "Hello Baby" tote bags, $16 "April's View Crew" T-shirts and a $50 three-pack of giraffe prints.

Patch has been surprised that everything has gone so smoothly with the baby giraffe since his birth, he said. Guests pay between $11 and $13 to see the giraffe family along with the park's 200 other animals.

As for whether he anticipates April's possible pregnancy whipping up similar hype across the internet, Patch could only speculate, saying, "Are we ready for another giraffe cam, world?" While that's certainly not a definitive answer, the fact that he didn't fully rule out the possibility has certainly given people hope that another baby giraffe is on the way.
