Watch Fiona the hippo go to town on her first birthday cake

It’s the first birthday of Fiona that the hippo. She did it! And she deserves a cake.

The baby hippo, born six weeks premature at the Cincinnati Zoo past January, has become a bonafide celebrity in her first year of life, making headlines with everything out of her first steps to that time she crashed an engagement photo.  

However, Fiona is over a cute baby animal (although she’s certainly queen of that category). She is a success story that was not necessarily a sure thing. And her survival is the result of amazing round-the-clock care from her keepers well as some kind of Fiona-specific tenacity that she stores in her ears.

So on her birthday, there’s a lot. The official party had been last weekend, but Fiona clearly still obtained another hippo-friendly birthday cake. Per Food and Wine, “hippo-friendly” signifies that it is made from fruit ice and coated in watermelon, honeydew, and Fiona’s very first pineapple. Basically a popsicle that is huge! Hell yeah!

And, clearly, the occasion was worthy of a Facebook Live.

Is anyone else sobbing? I’m for sure not — I only wanted to check on everyone.

Happy birthday. We love you.
