  • People from all around the world tuned into her livestream to watch this new giraffe baby be brought into the world.
  • This is the second time that April's been streamed while giving birth.

April, arguably the most famous giraffe in the world, has given birth again this weekend, with the world watching.

This isn't her first rodeo - in 2017, over 1 million people tuned in to watch the birth of her son, Tajiri. Over the seven weeks before the birth, she drew more than 232 million YouTube views.

This weekend Animal Adventure Park announced that April was beginning to go into labor, and shared a Facebook photo of a hoof peeking out.

Over the next few hours, fans excitedly watched as slowly but surely, April's new baby was born.

The newborn male is April's second calf with her current mate, Oliver.

April was born at a game farm in New York in 2002, before being relocated in 2006 to the small zoo where she became famous.
