This will be April's fourth calf and the first for dad, Oliver.

Millions of internet viewers are tensely following the video feed featuring a pregnant giraffe named April.

"We would be shocked to get through the weekend without our newest addition", Jordan Patch wrote in his daily update on Animal Adventure's Facebook page update.

"Animal Adventure Park said on its website Saturday morning, and "[the] report is that April continues to be out of normal behavior and shows signs of contractions.

The park says they are not announcing active labor at this time, and they made a second post later in the day describing some of April's behavior. The calf should come out with its front feet and nose first.
