While the world waits anxiously for April to give birth over in America, U.K. welcomed a rare Rothschild’s giraffe calf into the world. Eight-year-old Orla gave birth to a five-foot-tall Rothschild’s giraffe calf after a four-hour labor on Monday.

“The world may be waiting for April the giraffe to have her calf over in America, but Orla has beaten her to it.”

Below is a picture of April.  April is a giraffe at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, in the United States. After becoming pregnant, she became a “viral sensation” in February 2017 while being monitored by a live stream.

Chester Zoo shared a photo of the newest addition to the family on Wednesday. “Is there anything cuter than a baby giraffe at just a few hours old,” the zoo said in the Facebook post.
