April, the Giraffe whose seemingly never-ending pregnancy was live-streamed last year is pregnant again with baby number 5.


The Animal Adventure Park resident gave birth to a son, Tajiri, last April with approximately 1.2 million viewers watching the live-streamed delivery.


Animal Adventure Park owner Jordan Patch made the exciting pregnancy announcement on the TODAY show saying “The results are in and we are having a baby!”


“The average gestation period for a giraffe is 15 months, but April likes to go 16, 17, 18, 19 months,” Patch cautioned.


“Every calf counts,” Patch said of April’s newest pregnancy news. “Giraffe populations have declined by 40 percent in the past 30 years, so every calf born in a captive management program means something.”
