Baby giraffe born at Cincinnati Zoo
"What a cutie! Keeper is pretty sure it's a girl, but we'll let you know when that's official."

The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden welcomed a new female giraffe calf Monday morning.  Just before 4 a.m., Tessa started showing signs of labor and by 7 a.m. the baby started to emerge.  This is Tessa's third calf.

Here's the first video of the Zoo's newest addition:

The Cincinnati Zoo also live tweeted the birth.
