Beach Visitor Spots Purple Shape Under Giant Seal’s Tail, Then Realizes She’s Giving Birth

Here at LittleThings, we love birth stories. Whether it’s a human or animal birth, we think they’re all special, and there’s nothing more beautiful than watching a mom see her new baby for the very first time.

People all over the world watched in awe for weeks as April the Giraffe labored — and we were all amazed when she finally gave birth to her sweet little boy.

I’m not ashamed to admit that I teared up a little when I watched the video of the moment she finally set eyes on her son.

Similarly, we were all dumbfounded when this hedgehog gave birth to a tiny purple baby!

Now, I want to invite you to watch yet another incredible animal birth — this time it’s a grey seal in the United Kingdom.

At a nature reserve in Lincolnshire, visitors noticed a large grey seal struggling on the sand. It was clear she was in serious pain, but she had a look of determination on her face.

A visitor, who was watching the grey seal, grabbed her camera and started filming.

Just moments later, a tiny white head emerged from the seal — and seconds after that (with some significant effort on mom’s part), a seal pup shot out, landing gracefully on the sand.

Watch the video below to see what the new mama when she first saw her baby, and please SHARE this video if you love animal births!
