Move over, Meghan Markle ... there’s a new Meghan in town. But this Meghan is an animal—an okapi, to be exact.

Meghan the baby okapi was born at a London zoo in December after a 30-minute labor. Sources say that approximately 25,000 okapis remain in the wild. And the zoo says that naming the animal after London’s first black princess-to-be is an opportunity to raise awareness of the okapi, which is an endangered species.
