Pregnant woman mimics giraffe, video goes viral

The almost eight-minute-long video was posted Sunday and shows Erin Dietrich, of Myrtle Beach, wearing a giraffe mask and assuming various positions as she awaits the birth of her child.

Now that giraffe has some serious competition.

Erin Dietrich started live-streaming on Facebook Live on Sunday, March 5, while wearing a giraffe mask and baring her baby bump in a black sports bra and leggings.

One pregnant SC woman, a self-proclaimed fan of April the giraffe, parodied the live cam by doing squats and wandering in small circles in a Sunday night, March 6 Facebook live video that has been viewed more than 5 million times.

At 10 a.m Monday, the Facebook post had over 165,000 shares. That's when a stroke of comedic genius hit her and her husband and they chose to create their own video. ". I did not think this many people would get a kick out of this".


Sunday night, Lindsay went to the hospital to be induced and have her baby girl. "My husband said we should order a giraffe mask off Amazon".

Both Dietrich and April the giraffe are expecting their fourth child soon.

As for the actual giraffe, the internet has been waiting for the 15-year-old giraffe to give birth for almost three weeks. She said she is 39 weeks along.

Fans left wanting more of Dietrich's antics are likely in luck ― she told HuffPost that it's definitely something they're thinking about.
