April the giraffe took the internet by storm in 2017 when her unexpected pregnancy was broadcast live online from Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York.
This morning update from AAP said:
" As predicted – April's evening brought new changes this morning, prompting keeper notification sent to both park management and veterinary team.
Udders have filled.
We have yellow/cloudy discharge.

Dr Tim's request is to observe discharge amounts/presence throughout day. If still there this afternoon (steady discharge), it is good indication we are "there". Now of course, "there", could be hours, a day or so, perhaps… so I'll take the blame here and say – things are looking "imminent" (-Jordan).
What I will promise, it won't be two months of waiting!
Should we hit April 1st – I will literally wipe egg from my face"
At the time, April’s carers could not pinpoint when the giraffe became pregnant, adding an aura of mystery and tension to the affair.
