Congratulations Mei Xiang!!!!!
The Smithsonian National Zoo got a BIG suprise this weekend as their resident giant panda gave birth to a cub.
Mei Xiang is now the proud mama of a healthy babe, after FIVE false pregnancies.
Mei's first cub, Tai Shan, gained rockstar acclaim before being returned to China. The National Zoo is required to return cubs birthed from their loaned pandas to their maiden country.
No one will be able to contact the babes for the next few months.
Not bad for a mama who was only given a 10 percent chance to breed!
