It's the most anticipated birth for the early part of 2017 and here's a shocker, the mother is 15 years old. Oh yeah, she's been pregnant for 15 months. Okay, it's April the giraffe at Animal Adventure in Harpursville.

She's been pregnant since September 2015 and she is due to give birth at any time. According to Jordan Patch, the owner of Animal Adventure Park, it's rare to see a birth in captivity.

The new one won't be a little one, at least not by human standards. It'll start it's life around six feet tall and 150 pounds. The good news for us is that we should be able to see the "little" one with mama and maybe even the father, Oliver at Animal Adventure this year.

When April was asked what the name of the baby was, she kind of looked and said nothing. The name will be decided by a vote from the public when Animal Adventure does a naming contest.

You can watch April now on the Animal Adventure Park Giraffe Cam here.
