She's expected to give birth to her fifth calf next March or April.
April the Giraffe, the long-necked, spotted beauty from Animal Adventure Park who captivated the globe for months as she prepared for the birth of her fourth calf last year, is pregnant again.
The zoo in Harpursville, New York that she calls home made the announcement live on the "Today" show Wednesday morning.
"The results are in and we are having a baby," Animal Adventure Park owner Jordan Patch said.

And now the waiting begins. Patch says she's expected to give birth to her fifth calf next March or April.
Her newest calf, Tajiri, celebrated his first birthday in April, and nearly 50,000 people tuned into a live stream to watch him celebrate. Tajiri --Swahili for "hope" -- was born on April 15, 2017 at just under 130 pounds and more than 5 feet tall.
The live cam that revealed her long road to labor last year just went live again on Tuesday, and it's already offering up glimpses of mama April, papa Oliver, and Tajiri.
