Dallas Zoo's baby giraffe named

The newest member of the Dallas Zoo family now has a name.

More than 50,000 fans from across the world voted and chose the name Kipenzi for the baby giraffe.

Kipenzi means "a loved one" in Swahili.

The calf was born two weeks ago as millions of fans watch on a special Animal Planet live stream.

She's already gained more than 30 pounds since birth and stands more than 6 feet tall.

Reunion Tower will light up the new name Friday night starting at dusk.
