It seems April the giraffe has another bun in the oven.

"We were elated... We had a good idea and the laboratory confirmed it for us", said Patch. She's pictured here with her calf, Tajiri.

Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, made the happy announcement live on the Today Show Wednesday morning, ending weeks of speculation. Tajiri -Swahili for "hope" - was born on April 15, 2017 at just under 130 pounds and more than 5 feet tall.

The birth of April's last pregnancy with her baby Tajiri drew more than 1.2 million YouTube live views during her birth period previous year, along with 8.5 billion viewing minutes. More than a year after her last pregnancy went viral, the 16-year-old giraffe is pregnant once again.

As far as when Taj's brother or sister will arrive, Patch said the average gestation period for a giraffe is 15 months.
