If you want someone to get out of bed early on a Saturday, tell them a famous giraffe is giving birth.
Yes, friends, open your windows wide and spread the news: after what seems like an eternity of waiting, April the giraffe's little calf is finally making its grand entrance into the world.
And, understandably, thousands of people — normals and famouses alike — are reveling in this important moment in internet history.

See photos of the birth:
Of course, since this is the internet, people are also firing off those giraffe birth jokes they've been waiting to tweet.

Don't let #AprilTheGiraffe finally giving birth distract you from the fact the Golden State Warriors blew a 3-1 lead in the 2016 NBA Finals.

Apparently April is giving birth! All I hear are "eews" coming from people watching. I'll wait until the baby is all clean. Congrats!
