April became known around the world after the park in Harpursville, New York decided to livestream her pregnancy so that people could witness the miracle of giraffe birth.

The giraffe was a hit on social media, especially on the CBSDFW Facebook page, as viewers quickly became fans in 2017 when she gave birth to Tajiri.

The park said the new baby quickly bonded with its mother and has started nursing.

A name for April's new baby has not yet been chosen. The park will fully examine the new calf on Sunday.
