We’ve been watching for weeks, or is it months? For a while, it was all anyone was talking about. April the pregnant giraffe. We all thought she was supposed to give birth forever ago, yet she hasn’t. They said it’s because it’s almost impossible to predict when she got pregnant. We all swear we’ve seen the baby kick. We have. Right? And then there’s the daily headlines/updates from around the world.

With each passing day, it seems like “today is the day”. This video was even posted today.
It’s been going on so long, we’re getting a bit skeptical. USA Today addressed the thought with some pretty good evidence that it’s all legit. However, I think I’m done believing, and I’m definitely not alone.
What if that giraffe is pulling off the greatest April Fools prank of all time?

#April 1st, aka April Fools Day, "April" the giraffe will drop a bombshell, she's not pregnant & this was the best marketing scheme ever!

It just all adds up. They hype has been growing this week again, with more and more saying “any time now.” Well, tomorrow is April Fools Day. And the big red flag: her name is April! There might just be something to this theory.
Is Jimmy Kimmel behind the giraffe hoax?
One of our listeners, Maria, suggested this a few week ago. I thought nothing of it. But now… I’m not so sure. After all, he pulled off one of the biggest pranks of all time about 5 years ago. Remember this?
Would it not surprise anyone if the back wall fell, and there’s Jimmy’s studio? (Or if Guillermo popped out somehow???)
I guess we’ll continue to watch, and wait, skeptical as ever. Although I swear I just saw the baby kick again.
