Another witty fan decided to share a pic of the character Rose from Titanic in her older age, with a message that reads, “It’s been 84 years.” She captioned it, “Me waiting for April the giraffe to have her baby. #AprilTheGiraffe #giraffewatch.” The struggle is real! One Twitter user even shared an image of a google search that reads, “signs a giraffe is about to give birth,” proving how many of us can’t get April off our minds! Clearly, fans are beyond pumped to see the calf make its debut!
April is 16 months pregnant, so we’re sure she’s just as ready as we are! Luckily, fans were recently treated to a clip of the baby moving in her belly and it was incredible. He or she was even twisting and turning. The giraffe and her younger partner Oliver, 5, will be welcoming their first child together, so it’s a big deal! She’s also the proud mom of four or five other little ones.
The calf will weigh around 150 pounds and will stand about 6 feet tall when born, zoo officials said. The process reportedly can take either a few hours or days, so it’s just a matter of time! Once hooves appear, things move quicker, then it’s likely one hour before it’s out and about!
