The world has been obsessed with 15-year-old April, ever since the news broke that she and her mate, Oliver, 5, were expecting a baby. And, we’re happy to confirm that although she’s been in labor for over 48hrs as of Feb. 24, she’s doing great and “looking great,” the Animal Adventure Park’s Facebook posted in an update. April’s been getting the best care, and she’s been monitored throughout the days and evenings. The park revealed that “her physical posturing and other activity” they’ve observed, suggests that the birth of April and Oliver’s baby is near! The park staff is on stand by, even if the birth happens in the middle of the night, and veterinary observation happens every day.
April and Oliver are set to enjoy “yard time” today [Feb. 24], however they will be kept apart as a result of April’s condition. “His rambunctious play for an extended period could have negative effects,” the Facebook update continued. “Boys will be boys.”
HollywoodLifers, what do you think April’s baby’s name should be?
