UPDATED: Panda Gives Birth At National Zoo


Officials with the National Zoo confirmed their panda, Mei Xiang, has given birth to a panda cub.

The zoo tweeted the news with capital letters and exclamation points: "WE HAVE A CUB!! Born at 5:32 p.m. this evening. More details to follow."

Zoo officials report Mei immediately picked the cub up and started cradling it. Mei had been on 24-hour pregnancy watch since Aug. 7 when she began cradling her toys, licking her body and "nesting."
