April first became a livestream star on February 10, when cameras in her pen at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, started rolling.
Seconds after birth, April tenderly licked her calf, which began to slowly pick his head up from the floor of the pen.
The Internet-famous animal gave birth, after two months of being anxiously watched on her live stream, to a baby boy.
This is April's fourth calf, but Animal Adventure Park's first giraffe calf.
Mother, April, has also been described by the park's owner Jordan Patch as being "very protective and encouraging" of her calf.
The calf was born yesterday at the zoo in Harpursville, New York, about 209 km northwest of New York City.
The live stream started in February as fans intensely followed April.
April the giraffe finally gives birthWhile the calf's weight is now unknown, zoo officials said they weigh around 150 pounds and are about 6-feet tall at birth. After those 10 days the zoo will reveal the top 10 most popular entries, and then open up voting on those names for an additional five days. Unfortunately, her trusted veterinarian happened to attempt to feed and care for her precisely when she did not want to be bothered, and so April kicked him square in the nuts.
Patch said the calf's entrance into the world "was unnerving to even those of us who have witnessed animal births previously".
Animal Adventure Park posted on its Facebook page Sunday that the calf weighs 129 pounds (58.5 kilograms) and stands 5 feet 9 inches tall (1.75 meters).
The animal park's channel became the fifth-fastest to reach 200 million views, doing so in 54 days (behind notable celebrity non-giraffes Lady Gaga and Zayn). You even get to decide your own spelling.
The average giraffe pregnancy lasts about 15 months, the zoo said.
