Giraffe Watch 2019: April Gave Birth


The Sean Jackson Show was one of the few outlets monitoring the pregnancy of April the Giraffe. If you recall, April just gave birth in April of 2017 to a boy named Tajiri or "Taj"


April gave birth Saturday about 12:40 p.m. ET, approximately 1 hour after The Sean Jackson Show went off the air, at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York.


The new calf is also a boy, but has not been named yet. This is her 5th offspring. April is 17 years old.


While we are not sure if all of her children are by the same daddy, we have been told that the last 2 were fathered by a much younger suitor named Oliver or "Ollie".

Ollie is 7 years old and lives in the same barn with April.


Here is a live video of the happy family now:
