Watch April the giraffe's newborn calf take first wobbly steps

Adventure Park in Binghamton N.Y. a giraffe named April stands with her new calf on Saturday

April the Giraffe, who in a few short months became a global media sensation, gave birth to a boy on Saturday - drawing a mammoth audience on YouTube to rank among the most-viewed live events ever on the video service.

Animal Adventure Park, where April lives, later revealed on Instagram the baby giraffe is a boy. Newborn giraffes generally weigh about 150 pounds (68.04 kilograms) and are about 6 feet (1.83 meters) tall at birth.

"April has recovered perfectly and is eating everything in sight!"

The contest to name April's giraffe calf is underway after the birth of the animal went viral this year, according to statement from the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York. April's almost 16-month pregnancy culminated this Saturday, when she gave birth to her calf after being in labor for two hours. About 45 minutes after it was born, the calf stood on its wobbly legs for the first time while mom helped keep her baby steady.

"This is an official promotion of Animal Adventure Park", the zoo writes at the bottom of the page. Mom and baby had a great day!

Arkansas judge: Order guided by law, not execution views
The company says it is prohibited by contract with the drug's manufacturer from selling its products to be used in executions. The groups accused her of being close to trial attorneys and for the court's decision to strike down Arkansas' voter ID law.

Some got political, with one noting that while more than a million people "watched the birth of a precious animal...the Trump boys would shoot them both for sport". Expected to give birth in February, April had millions of viewers on the zoo's live feed in a tizzy, hoping that they'd all be there for the moment of the baby's arrival. The proud papa is a 5-year-old giraffe named Oliver.

The zoo began streaming from April's enclosure in February. A GoFundMe fundraiser page that initially set a goal of $50,000 sat at more than $134,000 by Saturday night.

April is very protective of her handsome son, as many new mothers are wont to be. The zoo says there will be a contest to name the newborn. It is now closed and will open to the public in mid-May.

As quite expected, the baby's front hooves came out first, followed by the snout.
