The Lincoln Park Zoo has welcomed a baby western lowland gorilla.

The baby was born October 11th and the ape exhibit was open to the public for the first time yesterday.

The new baby hasn't been named yet.

Zookeepers don't even know if they have a he or a she.

The experts say mom and baby are bonding, as the gorilla dad is watching over them both.
