Baby gorilla born at London Zoo

Gorilla

The baby gorilla's settling in at the zoo

It's a very special time for keepers at London Zoo - they are celebrating the birth of a new male gorilla - the first to be born there for 20 years!

Of course no-one will be prouder than his mum, Mjukku, who is said to be recovering well.

London Zoo haven't named him yet - but will soon be introducing the little one to his stepfather Kesho.

The newborn might be small now, but he'll grow up to become a 25 stone silverback gorilla!
