Smithsonian Gorilla's Motherly Affection To Newborn Goes Viral

Calaya, a 15-year-old Gorilla at the Smithsonian Natinoal Zoo in Washington, D.C., gave birth to her very first baby 3 days ago. His name is Moke, and he's the first to be born there in 9 years!

What's most touching is the footage the zoo caught of Calaya, even as inexperienced as she is, cradling and nurturing her newborn with so much motherly affection.

It's being reported that Moke's dad watched "from a respectable distance," naturally, as the birth took place and a "pleasure rumble" ensued upon the delivery's end between dad and other gorilla friends.
