Pregnant South Carolina Woman Hilariously Spoofs April the Giraffe and Goes Viral

Pregnant South Carolina Woman Hilariously Spoofs April the Giraffe and Goes Viral

Now that giraffe has some serious competition.

As the world waits for April the giraffe to give birth, a pregnant SC woman made a decision to mock her in a video that's going viral.

While the world continues to wait for April the giraffe to go into active labor, a new giraffe cam has quickly gone viral.

For nearly eight minutes, Dietrich - who is 39 weeks pregnant with her fourth child - paced around, sat on her bed and did a few squats while a camera placed high in the corner of her room broadcast the live stream. The post has been viewed more than nine million times, and Erin says she definitely wasn't prepared for the reaction. That's when a stroke of comedic genius hit her and her husband and they chose to create their own video.

Dietrich said she's due on March 14.

According to Dietrich's Facebook page, she owns her own photography company and lives in Myrtle Beach, though is originally from Middletown, New York. Once April goes into active labor, zookeepers will go in to help her the rest of the way.

"Omg I did not think this many people would get a kick out of this", Dietrich responded to one commenter.

More than 700 miles north of the Dietrichs' home in South Carolina, April the giraffe is waiting to give birth as well.

Giraffe pregnancies last for 15 months.
