April the Giraffe is a new mom.   After weeks and weeks of being watched by millions via a live webcam at Harpursville, New York's Animal Adventure Park, the birth finally happened on Saturday morning.

At the time the calf was born, usatoday.com reports that about 1.2 million people were watching live on YouTube.  It was about 8 a.m. when the small zoo announced that April had gone into labor.   The baby giraffe was born just under 2 hours later.

The park says they don't yet know the gender of the baby, but will release an update soon.
