The zoo confirmed that April was in labor in a video on their Facebook page around 7:30 a.m., and her calf was born just before 10 a.m.

The birth happens in the video below just before the 2-hour-29-minute mark.

Animal Adventure Park posted a closer look at the birth and the calf on their Facebook page.

After a few failed attempts, the calf managed to stand up for the first time around 10:30 a.m.

Animal Adventure Park revealed just before 2 p.m. that the calf is a boy and they need help picking out a name.
