JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jacksonville Zoo celebrated Mother’s Day with birth of a Western Lowland gorilla.

Zoo spokesman Lucas Meers told The Florida Times-Union (https://bit.ly/1Iw5jO9 ) the baby gorilla was born Saturday night.

Both baby and mother Madini are doing well.

Officials want the baby and mother to bond so they haven’t gotten close enough to determine the gender. The baby doesn’t yet have a name.
