Status Check: 'April' the Giraffe Doing Well, Still Pregnant

The 15-year-old giraffe named "April" who has captivated millions of people across the world as they watch a livestream in anxious anticipation of the birth of her fourth calf at an upstate New York zoo is still pregnant and doing well.

That said, vets checked in on her twice overnight and "physical posturing and other activity observed would suggest we are close," the group wrote on Facebook. Around 8:30 a.m., the livestream actually showed significant movement in April's belly as the long-necked beauty began to walk outside.
