HARPURSVILLE, N.Y. -- April the giraffe has given birth at a New York zoo as more than a million people around the world watched live.

The 15-year-old giraffe delivered her calf Saturday in an enclosed pen at the zoo in Harpursville, a rural upstate village about 130 miles (209 kilometres) northwest of New York City.

At least 1.2 million people watched the Adventure Park's YouTube stream .

This is April's fourth calf, but Animal Adventure Park's first giraffe calf. The proud papa is a 5-year-old giraffe named Oliver.

The privately owned zoo began livestreaming from April's enclosure in February. People around the world have been tuning in daily.
