April the Giraffe gave birth to her baby calf Saturday

At a tiny NY zoo, April the giraffe has managed to bring a little calf into being and, thanks to a YouTube livestream, the pregnancy and birth of the adorable little baby giraffe has captured the attention of viewers from around the world. "A permanent yard cam will go up this season which will also reconnect you to your favorite giraffe family", Animal Adventure Park announced on Facebook. "You know we have engaged the world, we've educated them, we've allowed them into our behind-the-scenes areas, but now we have to worry about the park and all the people that are going to be on our doorstep in a few short weeks", Patch said. Entries are $1 and funds will be split between the Giraffe Conservation Efforts, Ava's Little Heroes and improving Animal Adventure Park.

After coming online February 23, it has become the second most-watched livestream in YouTube history with more than 232 million views and 7.6 billion minutes of live watch time.

After a patient wait, the male calf was born earlier this month, to the delight of a global live audience that has sometimes numbered in the tens of millions.

Heavy rain may cause flash flooding
Horry and Georgetown counties are under a flash flood watch from midnight until 8 a.m. Across the state line in West Virginia, the flood watch was issued for Mercer County.

In addition, the zoo has set a tentative date for naming its newest giraffe - May 1. You can help name the calf by voting, here.

Fans of April the Giraffe and her baby bid farewell to their favorite giraffe family last week, but the zoo where they live shared some good news this weekend. Animal Adventure Park posted.

Even though it hasn't been a week yet, many people have been feeling a little empty without April the giraffe in their life. "I think many of us are having withdrawals", said Amy Worth.
