The pregnant giraffe that took the world by storm has done it again.

April the giraffe gave birth live on camera for the second time on Saturday at the Animal Adventure Park in New York. She went into labor about 11 a.m., the zoo said, and a little hoof could be seen emerging from April.

April's little one made its YouTube debut around 12:43.

The zoo said mom and baby quickly bonded. The boy was up on his feet by 1:30 and he was nursing by 2 p.m.

The camera-ready giraffe became a viral sensation in 2017 when the zoo livestreamed her pregnancy, labor and birth. After months of eager fans waiting to witness the birth of new life, April finally welcoming her calf into the world. More than 1.2 million people watched the live birth.

Giraffe calves aren't exactly so little when they're born, though. The 2017 baby, named Tajiri after an online voting contest, was born at 5 feet, 9 inches. and weighed about 130 pounds. Tajiri's name means "hope" and "confidence" in Swahili.

April's latest baby will receive its name the same way Tajiri did.

In addition to Tajiri and her youngest offspring, April is also mom to three others, which were born behind the lens.
