After months of anticipation, she gave birth in April to Tajiri, who is her fourth calf and first with fellow giraffe Oliver. The last time the viral mama was pregnant, millions watched her livestream from February through April.

April the Giraffe is keeping up with the Kardashians.

Animal Adventure Park owner Jordan Patch appeared on Good Morning America on November 9, 2017, and could neither confirm nor deny the rumors, fueling the speculation that another little one was on the way.

Donnelly said the same thing: "All I can add is, stay tuned!"


"I can not confirm nor deny the possibility of another pregnancy", Patch told the morning show hosts. "Are we ready for another giraffe cam, world?" he asked.

In his TV appearance, Patch said April has been an unbelievable mother to baby Tajiri, who likes to be independent, thanks to his father Oliver. The Adventure Park Zoo created an online portal specifically for shoppers to purchase April the Giraffe merchandise and a GoFundMe campaign was launched in April's honor to improve the Giraffe Encounter Deck.

April was pregnant for 16 months with Tajiri, so if she is pregnant, we have some time to prepare. Animal Adventure Park recently said on Facebook that Tajiri is now 10 feet tall and "is a strong echo of mom, April's, personality". Looks like April has been getting busy with Oliver, Tajiri's father.

"From the hundreds of thousands of visitors we've seen and even just his progress in growth has been remarkably easy and textbook, which has been a blessing", he said.
