It has been seven months since April the giraffe gave birth to a cute little calf, later named Tajiri. Millions of people tuned in to watch her almost two-and-a-half-hour labor, and-if the animal's previous popularity is any indication-millions more will tune in should she ever birth to a fifth baby giraffe.

America's most famous giraffe is back in the spotlight, and she could be pregnant again.

Jordan Patch, owner of the animal park, was coy when addressing rumors of the possible pregnancy, telling Good Morning America, "I can not confirm nor deny the possibility of another pregnancy".

"I can not confirm nor deny the possibility of another pregnancy", Patch told the morning show hosts.

Fans can still watch April and the giraffes at Animal Adventure Park on the zoo's YouTube livestream. "You tell me", he said during the interview with Good Morning America. "Are we ready for another giraffe cam, world?" he asked. "Oliver and April are sharing space, nature can take its course and should it call on us, we'll be ready", said Patch.

If the rumors are true, this would be April's fourth calf, and the second born at Animal Adventure Park. But last month, zoo officials did hint that love was in the air for April and her mate Oliver.

Tajiri has grown from standing 5 feet 9 inches tall at birth to nearly 10 feet.

This spring, April the giraffe made everyone on social media anxious for waiting for the birth of her calf, watching the giraffe cam for 65 days. He added that it was a blessing for Tajiri to progress in his growth, while also seeing hundreds of thousands of visitors, all of it was "remarkably easy and textbook".
