At Allwetter Zoo in Münster, Germany, Jane and Harry, two Southern White Rhinos, met and fell in love!
The rhino couple decided to have a baby tougher and after a 16 month gestation, Jane gave birth to her first baby: a little boy!
As if we needed MORE proof baby Rhinos are impossicute!
OMG! That little guy is so crazy cute, we don't know what to do!
At Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo, Jamie, an Indian Rhinoceros, gave birth to a male calf named Jiyu.
His name means compassionate friend, and that's just too sweet!
The little baby and his mama are spending time "off exhibit," which means they're away from the public, bonding as a family in private.
There was a lot of heavy rain recently, so the two-week old calf gets to splash around in mud puddles!!
This little baybay is extra special, as it's estimated that there are under 3,000 Indian Rhinos left in the entire world.
So hopefully he grows up big and strong, and can start pumping out rhinos of his own!
But don't grow up too quick just to get to breeding. You're young, enjoy the mud puddles while you've still got them.

This is just so insanely cute we don't know what to do.
We don't want to overreact but c'mon!!
Baby animals are impossibly cute, or to use the technical term, impossicute.
When the baby animal is an exotic, rare or wild animal, things are usually even CUTER!
So when we found out there was a video online of a baby Rhino taking his first steps?? We nearly lost our shiz!!
So prepare to "awwww" your face off!
Check out the video (above) of a cute baby Rhino, born one week ago at an Australian zoo, taking his first steps!!!
Go, cutie, go!!
Prince William is not a man to be messed with!
He's a prince after all.
So when he calls for action on the ivory trade, we best take him seriously.
And even though the Prince is talking about a VERY serious matter, we can't help but notice how cute he looks!
But that's besides the point.
Ch-ch-check out the video of the prince (above) !!!
Beyonce has been blowing up even bigger than usual this year.
The more you're in the spotlight, the more you'll be scrutinized, and it looks like that's been happening to Beyonce.
Most recently, he attacked Beyonce during a concert of his in L.A., talking about her bags.
OMG!! There is nothing cuter than small versions of big things.
Australia Zoo just announced the birth of their second Southern White Rhinoceros calf, a cute lil baybay gurrrl.
We say lil just cause she's tiny for a rhino. She actually weighs about 100 pounds!!
Because of poaching for their horns, White Rhinos are listed as Near Threatened.
So every time a new Rhino is born into the world, it's an event to celebrate!
The lil baby and her mama are spending time bonding off display.
A zookeeper said:
"We're really happy with her progress. She is feeding and is quite active – she was walking within hours of the birth."
That's great! We're so glad she's healthy!
Congrats, mama Rhino!
