Woman Imitates April the Giraffe

Over the last week, the nation has been glued to a NY zoo's live stream of a pregnant giraffe named April.

Erin Dietrich, who is 39 weeks pregnant with her fourth child, streamed a video live on Facebook from her bedroom as she wears a giraffe mask and walks around.

Over the last week, millions of people have been glued to a live video of a pregnant giraffe in hopes of witnessing the moment she gives birth.

Erin went live on Facebook Sunday evening around 8:46 p.m. sporting a giraffe mask and showcasing her own baby bump.

She has been obsessed with watching April and she and her friends thought it would be fun to mimic the giraffe, whose pen is being live-streamed in anticipation of the birth. Her own bundle of joy is due March 14. The zoo's YouTube livestream of April has totaled more than 15 million views since it was posted on February 22, making her an internet sensation. "Clearly we live an exciting life over here in the Dietrich house". Like April the giraffe's video, hers too went viral, and as of Monday has amassed more than 13 million views. The upstate NY zoo previously announced it would hold a competition online to determine the baby calf's name.

Viewers meanwhile playfully analyzed her movements in the comments section to determine whether she had gone into labor or not. "My husband said we should order a giraffe mask off Amazon".
