Keepers at Philadelphia Zoo in the USA noticed that 17-year-old Kira had gone into labour on Thursday last week but grew concerned when the typically quick birth had not happened by Friday.
Staff feared for the safety of 17-year-old Kira when she became unwell after going into labour last Thursday.
"She appeared to tire and behaved as if she were feeling worse over the course of the morning and there were no signs of the labor progressing", the zoo said in a statement released Wednesday.
PHILADELPHIA - Some Philadelphia doctors delivered a different kind of baby than usual Friday. Motuba also had a baby Amani, a female born at the zoo last August. After 1 1/2 hours, the 5-pound baby boy was born.
The zoo said Kira has been cradling him nonstop and nursing him while dad Motuba stays close to protect his family, a common role for gorilla fathers.
The team also provided initial neonatal care for the new baby through the night, until Kira was fully recovered and reunited with her offspring the next morning.
Mr Baker added: "Though Kira is a first-time mom, we're not surprised she's acting like an expert already".
The other members of the gorilla troop are the newborns half sister, 9-moth-old Amani and her mother Honi.
"Everybody is excited about these two future playmates", Baker said.
