Meanwhile, millions of people across the world are watching the real-life giraffe's livestream from Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York. The upstate NY zoo previously announced it would hold a competition online to determine the baby calf's name. She walked around her bedroom for about eight minutes wearing the giraffe mask, and the result was absolutely hilarious.
"We ordered the mask off Amazon on Friday", Erin writes on the now viral post.
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. ". I did not think this many people would get a kick out of this".
"We've talked about doing a live feed every night and maybe getting a giraffe hat for the baby when it is born", Erin Dietrich said while laughing. The post has been viewed more than nine million times, and Erin says she definitely wasn't prepared for the reaction. She said she is 39 weeks along.
