Cutest thing at The Cincinnati Zoo’s

Sooo Cuuuuuute!

On Saturday Tessa, the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden's four-year-old giraffe, gave birth to her first calf, and the first born at the zoo in 26 years.

The Cincinnati Zoo’s history with giraffe births goes back to 1889 when it became the first zoo in the Western Hemisphere to have a giraffe born in captivity.

The sex of the calf hasn't been checked, as the mother and child are being left alone to bond.

The zoo posted photos on its blog, along with a sentence that makes human childbirth sound relatively easy: "volunteers noticed the calf's hoof coming through."

Tessa, who currently weighs approximately 1,800 pounds, came to the Cincinnati Zoo in 2008 from the Houston Zoo for the opening of the Giraffe Ridge exhibit.

The father, “Kimbaumbau” (Kimba) also came to Cincinnati in 2008, from the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island.
