Is April the giraffe pregnant again?


Seven months ago, April the giraffe made headlines as millions tuned in to watch her give birth live to her fourth calf. Now, the viral sensation may be ready for another special delivery.

Animal Adventure Park owner Jordan Patch appeared on “Good Morning America” Thursday morning to give fans an update on the mother and her son Tajiri, who was born April 15 at the park in Binghamton, New York. 

When GMA hosts asked if there was another bun in the oven, Patch answered, “I cannot confirm nor deny the possibility of another pregnancy.”

If she is indeed expecting, the caretaker also teased the likelihood of another live stream.

“Are we ready for another giraffe cam, world? You tell me,” he laughed.

Millions of people around the world tuned into the much-anticipated live birth, which first started making headlines in February after YouTube briefly took the zoo's livestream down after animal activists complained the video violated policies against “nudity and sexual content.”

But after the zoo urged commenters to voice their frustrations — and thousands did — YouTube restored the stream within an hour.

On the morning of the delivery, more than 1.2 million people watched to help welcome April’s bundle of joy into the world.
