VIRAL VIDEO FEED: The world is watching this pregnant giraffe
Not since Beyoncé has the world been so captivated by a pregnancy!
April, who lives at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, with partner Oliver, are about to become parents. Watch here. April has a pretty good sense of humour too… here’s a brief statement from her website:
Hello, humans of the Internet. I, April the pregnant giraffe, understand that you are interested in the impending birth of my calf. It is a joyous occasion to be sure, and I’m happy to share my joy with the hundreds of thousands of people watching my live stream on YouTube. But newsflash: Staring at me and demanding “Where’s that baby already??” is NOT helping.
Look, I have been pregnant for 15 months. FIFTEEN. Believe me, NO ONE is more ready for this baby than I am. Oh, I look so huge? What a fascinating observation. My belly looks like it’s about to pop? Wow, such an original comment that I have not heard every single day for the past month. Two in there? No, just the one, thanks so much for your interest Mrs. Not-A-Veterinarian. I’m so sorry that you find watching the waning moments of my super-long pregnancy to be frustrating or boring. It’s a non-stop laugh riot for me, gestating a 150-pound mammal inside my body.
