The Dallas Zoo family is growing, again.
The zoo shared news on Facebook that one of its giraffes is expecting a calf sometime in May.
Katie the giraffe has gained 295 pounds — a sure marker a baby giraffe is due in the coming weeks.
"This time, we're going to let Katie give birth in privacy," the zoo stated.
"She's already spending nights in the soft sand of the maternity stall, and in a few weeks she will stop going out into the giraffe habitat until the birth," the post added.
Katie's pregnancy propelled the zoo into the spotlight two years ago. The birth of Kipenzi drew about 4 million live viewers on online and Animal Planet.
Three months later, Kipenzi died after turning sharply into an enclosure wall. The zoo told our partners at The Dallas Morning News it plans to baby-proof the Giants of the Savanna habitat by adding barriers around the perimeter, making the fencing more obvious to a calf.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The upcoming calf will be Katie's third — Jamie, born in July 2011, was her first.
