DALLAS, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – Much to the delight of guests, the Dallas Zoo held a gender reveal party for its newest Nile hippopotamus calf.

Momma Boipelo gave birth to the portly, precious baby named Adanna.

Her name means “father’s daughter” in the Nigerian Igbo language.

The zoo posted that it thinks the name is the perfect name to honor Adanna’s late father, Adhama.
