April the giraffe might be pregnant again 7 months after viral birth

"I can not confirm nor deny the possibility of another pregnancy", Animal Adventure Park owner Jordan Patch said on Good Morning America, fueling speculation that April is again pregnant just months after giving birth to her baby boy Tajiri.

April's day-to-day and night-to-night activities inside a pen at the park were streamed for 65 days while social media lit up with excitement, speculation and even some bets regarding the date of the baby giraffe's birthday.

"I can not confirm nor deny the possibility of another pregnancy", Animal Adventure Park owner Jordan Patch said on "GMA" today, fueling the speculation. Almost 2 million viewers tuned in to watch April the Giraffe's live birth on YouTube and Facebook after eagerly waiting for 65 days.

The giraffe who became a viral sensation thanks to her giving birth could be pregnant again.

He also suggested that the park in upstate NY could be ready for another "giraffe cam".

Though the reports have yet to be confirmed, one thing is for sure: the world is ready to watch April deliver another baby!

According to Patch, April's most recent calf, Tajiri, is already approaching roughly 10 feet in height.

"We can not confirm nor deny the possibility", Patch said.

"She's obviously very in tune to [Tajiri] and protective of him, but she's also allowing him to take on that independent trait that he has, which definitely comes from his father", Patch said of April's parenting.

Patch has been surprised that everything has gone so smoothly with the baby giraffe since his birth, he said.

The park also employed a $5 charge to receive giraffe birth news text alerts and charged fans $1 to vote for a baby name.
