Erin Dietrich, a photographer from Myrtle Beach, SC, who is 39 weeks pregnant, did her best April the Giraffe impression during an 8-minute live Facebook video on Sunday night. "This evening, keeper report suggests a bit more calm now", the zoo wrote.
Almost 56,000 people tuned in to watch the gentle giant Sunday morning as she peered over the dividing fence to catch a glimpse of her mate, Oliver, who paced around his pen.
The livestream has been mostly unentertaining so far, with no sign that April's bundle of joy wants to come out anytime soon.
They say it will weigh around 150 pounds and will be about 6 feet tall at birth.
April will raise the calf naturally. She's now pregnant with her fourth calf and lives adjacent to the calf's father Oliver "Ollie" who is five-years-old. Active labor will begin with the onset of April's mucus plug followed by the appearance of hooves.
The live feed experienced glitches yesterday, prompting hundreds of concerned emails from viewers about a late update posted to Facebook. You may find more information on April's official website below. It is unknown how long the live giraffe cam will stream after the calf's birth.
This obviously isn't the first time a baby giraffe was born in a zoo.
