NEW YORK — Seven months ago, April the giraffe made headlines as millions of people tuned in to watch her give birth to her fourth calf live via the internet. Now the viral sensation may be ready for another special delivery.
Animal Adventure Park owner Jordan Patch appeared on “Good Morning America” Thursday morning to give fans an update on the mother and her son Tajiri, who was born April 15 at the park in Binghamton, New York.
When GMA hosts asked if there was another bun in the oven, Patch answered, “I cannot confirm nor deny the possibility of another pregnancy.”
If she is indeed expecting, the caretaker also teased the likelihood of another livestream.
“Are we ready for another giraffe cam, world? You tell me,” he laughed.
Millions of people around the world tuned into the much-anticipated live birth, which first started making headlines in February after YouTube briefly took the zoo's livestream down after animal activists complained the video violated policies against “nudity and sexual content.”
After the zoo urged commenters to voice their frustrations -- and thousands did -- YouTube restored the stream within an hour.

— Ariana Grande has released her first single since the 2017 Manchester attack just after her concert.
“No Tears Left to Cry,” confronts the emotions the singer, her fan base and others felt after the bombing that killed 22 people and injured more than 59 others.
The visuals start dark and brighten, similar to the song itself, which is about picking yourself up after a hard time.
“Ain’t got no tears left to cry (so don’t cry)/ So I’m pickin’ it up, I’m pickin’ up (oh yeah)/ I’m lovin’, I’m livin’, I’m pickin’ it up,” chorus lyrics say.
Watch the music video for “No Tears Left to Cry” below. The song is the lead single from her upcoming, currently untitled fourth studio album.

— Actor Rachel Weisz has announced that she and her husband, James Bond actor Daniel Craig, are expecting their first child.
The actress revealed the news when she spoke to The New York Times to promote her movie “Disobedience.”
“I’ll be showing soon. Daniel and I are so happy,” she told The Times. “We’re going to have a little human. We can’t wait to meet him or her. It’s all such a mystery.”
Weisz, 48, and Craig, 50, have been married for seven years and are very private about their personal lives, but Weisz did share that she is happy in her marriage.
“I’m very happy being married,” she said, “Very, very happy,”
Although Weisz applauds celebrity couples who have made their relationships part of their brand, that’s not the case for her marriage
“Daniel and I are really similar. We just literally don’t know how to do that,” Weisz said. “We’re just really crap at talking about our private lives.”

— She looks like the grandma who has to cook for everyone, but Mary Berry, star of “The Great British Bake Off,” has a dark past.
Berry recently recounted the time that airport security detained her for taking bags of powder through airport security, Metro reported.
Berry told Graham Norton, “I was arrested 25 years ago. I was going to the US to do some cookery demonstrations and was worried that there might be problems so I weighed out all the ingredients - flour, sugar - and put them all in little plastic bags.”
You can imagine what came next.
The K-9’s zeroed in on her bags, Independent reported.
“Suddenly I was surrounded by uniformed people and my assistant and I were put in separate cells. It was alarming. When I was asked if I was going to make money from the stuff, I said, ‘I do and my fee has already been agreed,’” Berry told Norton.

— David Copperfield was forced to shatter his most famous illusion.
The famed magician was ordered in court Tuesday to break the Magicians Oath in court Tuesday, the BBC reported. A judge ordered Copperfield to explain one of his most famous tricks -- the Lucky #13 -- during a trial involving a man who claimed he was injured during the stunt.
British tourist Gavin Cox, 58, filed a negligence lawsuit against the illusionist, Time reported. Cox claimed he fell while participating in the Lucky #13 trick at the MGM Grand Resort and Casino in Las Vegas in 2013, the BBC reported. In the trick, Copperfield makes 13 audience members, chosen at random, disappear on stage and then reappear at the back of the room, the BBC reported.
Cox told NBC News that he has suffered chronic pain and brain injury and has spent more than $400,000 on medical bills.
Copperfield’s attorney argued that revealing the secret would be financially detrimental, but a Las Vegas district court ruled against the magician
A Las Vegas district court rejected Copperfield’s defense, which argued that disclosing the secret behind the trick would be financially detrimental to him. He was ordered to explain how the trick was done.
Spoiler alert: Copperfield’s executive producer testified that when the curtain falls, the 13 volunteers are taken through passageways that circle the MGM building. They exit the building and then re-enter at the back of the theater, Time reported.
