According to the park's Facebook page Wednesday, keepers wanted to give "a quick biology lesson" to dispel any hoax rumors.

“Animals do not develop milk unless supporting a pregnancy,” the post read. “Furthermore - giraffes do not develop large udders like cattle etc, so to see this much development truly suggests calving in the near future. Patience is a virtue!”

About two weeks ago, keepers reported that they'd be surprised to get through the weekend without a birth. However, April is still pregnant. 

Millions of people around the world have been tuning into the much-anticipated live birth, which first started making headlines last month after YouTube briefly took the zoo's livestream down after animal activists complained the video violated policies against "nudity and sexual content."

But after the zoo urged commenters to voice their frustrations — and thousands did — YouTube restored the stream within an hour.

The park said it expects the calf, which will be born to April and 5-year-old Oliver, will weigh about 150 pounds and will be nearly six feet tall when it is born.
