April the Giraffe finally met her friendly competitor "Giraffe Mom" Erin Dietrich, the pregnant mom whose spoof of April went viral last month.

She later posted a video her wearing the giraffe head from inside her hospital room as she prepared to go into labor a few days later.

According to a recent Facebook livestream from Dietrich, she was approached by Inside Edition to visit Animal Adventure Park in upper NY.


April the giraffe and her baby received some special visitors recently at the Animal Adventure Park - the "giraffe mom" and her newborn baby, Porter.

Erin Dietrich, the SC mother who donned a giraffe mask before and after the birth of her son in March, met the country's most famous giraffe Wednesday.

The connection between April the Giraffe and "Giraffe Mom" could theoretically continue long after their respective Internet glories become just a blip on the computer screen.


Dietrich met the park's owner, Jordan Patch, and even hand-fed April some lettuce and carrots.

"We're buddies; we're companions", Erin told Inside Edition. "She just doesn't know it".

Inside Edition arranged the meeting of the viral Internet titans, and Dietrich said she felt chemistry with her giraffe counterpart.


Dietrich brought her newborn son, Porter, to meet the giraffe.
