Maternal Instincts Were Strong When April the Giraffe Got a Special Visitor

It felt like we waited forever for April the Giraffe to give birth. It was so long that we were wondering if she was even pregnant at all.

While we were waiting for the giraffe calf, one pregnant mom decided to have a little fun with it.

In the final days of her pregnancy Erin Dietrich put on a giraffe mask and created her own live feed and it went viral!

The 2 giraffe moms met up with their new babies, just days after April gave birth to her 129 pound baby boy.

April loved Porter 😘

Erin gave birth to Porter Lane on March 8 just days after making her parody video that made her an internet sensation.

Weighing in at 8 pounds 2 ounces, the mother-of-four sported the giraffe mask once again while breastfeeding her son in the hospital.

Seeing these 2 moms together is so wonderful. I bet Erin would have understood April's protective instinct when she kicked a vet who got to close to her newborn boy.
