Now 7 months later, young Tajiri, Patch said this morning, is "already approaching about 10-feet in height" and added that April has "been an fantastic mother" to him. April gave birth to a healthy little boy on 15 April, and millions of people watched the moment Tajiri was brought into the world at the park in Harpursville, New York.

She's a giraffe so famous she only goes by her first name: April.

Jordan Patch, owner of the animal park, was coy when addressing rumors of the possible pregnancy, telling Good Morning America, "I can not confirm nor deny the possibility of another pregnancy".

"We can't confirm or deny that", Steven Donnelly told TODAY about the pregnancy speculation. Millions of people tuned in to watch the pregnancy, labor and birth of a baby born to the now-famous mother giraffe, April. "Are we ready for another giraffe cam, world?" he asked. He said it's too early to tell. The Adventure Park Zoo created an online portal specifically for shoppers to purchase April the Giraffe merchandise and a GoFundMe campaign was launched in April's honor to improve the Giraffe Encounter Deck. The baby, her fourth child, was named Tajiri, a Swahili word that means hope.

Tajiri has grown from standing 5 feet 9 inches tall at birth to nearly 10 feet. But last month, zoo officials did hint that love was in the air for April and her mate Oliver.

"From the hundreds of thousands of visitors we've seen and even just his progress in growth has been remarkably easy and textbook, which has been a blessing", he said.
