Melbourne Zoo welcomed a new addition on March 14 when the gorilla Kimya gave birth. This is the zoo’s first baby gorilla in 15 years! How exhilarating.

The birth was filmed by the zoo’s primate keeper Damian Lewis and manager Harna Burton. In the video, while the zoo staff argue over whether the baby is a boy or a girl, Kimya takes motherhood in her stride, looking after her baby like a seasoned pro. Upon witnessing the birth, Burton said:

“Definitely, most amazing thing I’ve ever seen and I’m so proud of my team. It’s been amazing.”
