Camera in the Delivery Room! DC Welcomes a New Panda Baby

By
Real Estate Agent with Evers & Company Real Estate, Inc. AB95346

Late last night, the National Zoo's proud parents, Mei Xiang and her husband, Tian Tian, welcomed a bouncing baby panda cub into the world - about the size of a stick of butter.  And while it's impossible to see this little bundle of joy by visiting the Panda House (it's closed to give the pandas some privacy) you can see the little guy on the panda cam (and therefore invade their privacy).

Actually, it's really hard to get onto the Panda cam these days.  There is so much traffic that they even set up a second cam, and I haven't been able to get onto either one.  But it's pretty easy to watch the video of the whole birth

Yeah, they are really, really concerned about this family's privacy!  I have to wonder.  DId Mei Xiang know that her cub's delivery was being videoed and broadcast over the Internet? 

OK, Kate future queen of England.  Forget the topless photos of you on vacation with your husband.  Imagine the tabloids invading the delivery room as you give birth to the heir - or in this case, the spare!  Mei Xiang just experienced  a real invasion of privacy!

Gayle, well, Will and Kate are married, after all! And if anyone got a pic of me topless, it might have to go on the humor page. William, and if it's Kate in Kenya, the wide-angle lenses are sure to follow. And I'll have to update my plug-in, too And apparently you can't gey anywhere near the nursery. All of the adorable kids they interviewed on TV last night didn't seem too bummed about it.

I think the Panda is the only animal that looks the exact same as it's stuffed toy counter part...

Paul, they really are totally adorable.  I'm sure the zoo will sell out of the stuffed ones by now.

Patricia, funny you mentioned the hypothetical filming of the birth of a royal heir. In times long past, there used to be official witnesses not only to the birth but also to the event of conception! Oh my!
