April the giraffe is pregnant again, everyone, we are already tired. 

The 17-year-old giraffe reached international popularity last year for the infamous livestream of her extremely long pregnancy. She eventually gave birth to Tajiri, a male calf who recently celebrated his first birthday. 

Jordan Patch, Animal Adventure Park owner, announced the big news on the TODAY show on Wednesday. 

"The results are in and we are having a baby," he exclaimed like a proud parent, or overly intrusive family friend. 

The father of the baby is Oliver the giraffe, who also fathered Tajiri. This is April's fifth pregnancy. Although the average gestation period for a giraffe is around 15 months, Patch told the TODAY show that "April likes to go 16, 17, 18 ... 19 months."  Read more...
