Viral sensation April the giraffe may be pregnant again

April the Giraffe had already been a viral star months before then, after the owners of Animal Adventure Park, located in Harpursville, New York, began posting daily updates of her condition and set up a live stream "giraffe cam".

When asked by the GMA anchor team, Patch wouldn't say whether April is pregnant again.

The interview marked the six month birthday of the giraffe calf Tajiri whose gestation and birth were followed by millions of viewers on the internet earlier this year.

She's a giraffe so famous she only goes by her first name: April.

"We can't confirm or deny that", Steven Donnelly told TODAY about the pregnancy speculation. Millions of people tuned in to watch her almost two-and-a-half-hour labor, and-if the animal's previous popularity is any indication-millions more will tune in should she ever birth to a fifth baby giraffe.

He also suggested that the park in upstate NY could be ready for another "giraffe cam". But April is also letting Tajiri explore his surroundings, so that he can become as independent as his father is. "You tell me", Patch said.

If the rumors are true, this would be April's fourth calf, and the second born at Animal Adventure Park.

"Tajiri is a word in Swahili that means hope", Patch explained back in May when the name was announced.

The park owner's comment caused a social media frenzy, as April fans took to Twitter to express their shock at the possibility of another giraffe cam.

We're all happy to see mother April and her baby calf healthy and we'll keep our fingers crossed for a future baby brother or sister for Tajiri!
