April the Giraffe is pregnant again.

April, the giraffe whose YouTube pregnancy in 2017 made her famous, is due again around next March. The calf, Tajiri, was her first to be born at the park.

This is no tall tale - April the Giraffe is pregnant again.

Oliver, who fathered Tajiri, is also the father of the new calf - whose gender won't be known until April gives birth.

Animal Adventure Park revealed they had been collecting stool samples from April for 30 days to determine if they are expecting another calf.

The privately owned zoo is already live streaming from her enclosure, with more than 232 million people having tuned in during the seven weeks leading up to the birth of Tajiri last April.

Trump administration to announce financial assistance to farmers in wake of tariffs
USDA officials told reporters they were still working to set up the programs, which they expect to be ready by early September. The announcement came hours after Trump took to Twitter TWTR to proclaim: " Tariffs are the greatest! ".

The park said fans of April will get to follow her pregnancy journey once again on social media.

Jordon Patch of Animal Adventure Park in upstate NY announced the pregnancy Wednesday on NBC's "Today" show.

As far as when Taj's brother or sister will arrive, Patch said the average gestation period for a giraffe is 15 months.

It's unclear if the newborn will be a female or male calf, but Patch estimates the pregnancy could take up to 19 months.

"April likes to go 16, 17, 18 ..."
