April the Giraffe, Animal Adventure Park Owner Both Think She's Having a Girl

Fans of April the giraffe have been checking in on the 17-year-old giraffe daily and watching her live on YouTube waiting to see the birth of her newest baby. She's in her 15th month of pregnancy, the final month of pregnancy for a giraffe. 

While April, her caretakers and her fans have been waiting, they couldn't all help but make their guesses as to whether her new baby will be a boy or a girl. 

Last time April gave birth at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, she had a boy, whom the fans voted to name Tajiri. 

On February 11, April made her way over to a sign that read "Team Pink" instead of "Team Blue" in her pen at the park in a Facebook video. It wasn't until this week that the park released a video of park owner Jordan Patch and other park employees weighing in on whether they thought April would be having a girl or boy. They wore shirts that revealed their guesses.

"Now, of course, I have my predictions, and that is..." Patch says before unzipping his sweatshirt to reveal a pink shirt. "Team Pink! But if you really think about it, being the owner of the park, it would be inappropriate not to also recognize Team Blue." Patch then reveals that he is wearing a Team Pink shirt in front and a Team Blue shirt in back. 

Patch and his colleagues have no way of knowing whether the baby will be a boy or girl, Patch told Newsweek. Those closest to April will find out the new calve's sex just a few minutes before the rest of the world watching along finds out, when the calf is born. 

Once the baby is born fan, will also be able to vote on the new baby's name to be. The process will be similar to the one that was used to name April's last baby Tajiri. 

April fans worldwide can watch her every day online here.
