April the giraffe captivated the world this spring when millions of viewers tuned in to a livestream to anxiously watch the birth of her fourth calf, Tajiri, who came into the world on April 15 at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York.

Now, seven months after one of the most viral births in history, everyone's favorite giraffe mom might be pregnant again.

During a Thursday morning appearance on "Good Morning America," Animal Adventure Park owner Jordan Patch was asked by host Amy Robach how soon the world could expect another April pregnancy.   

After taking a long pause, Patch replied "I cannot confirm nor deny the possibility of another pregnancy," which was met by wild reactions from the hosts and the show's live audience. 

"If it is going to happen, will we be able to see it online?" co-host Michael Strahan asked once the cheering died down. 

"Are we ready for another giraffe cam, world? You tell me," Patch said, fueling speculation. 


April's 2017 pregnancy, which lasted 65 days, went viral after a live-stream of the pregnant giraffe was posted on YouTube by Animal Park Adventure

Interestingly enough, the zoo took to Facebook again in October to say that "love is in the air" for April and her mate, Oliver, and that the mom of four had been cleared for another pregnancy.

So, will we be treated to another April livestream in 13 - 15 months? Only time will tell.
