CINCINNATI, Ohio - The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden's famous hippopotamus family had a loving and joyful reunion this week.

Henry, the father of the famous baby hippo Fiona, returned to his family after a long illness.

The zoo posted video on Friday showing Henry spending time with Fiona and mother, Bibi.

The hippo family has been separated for a number of weeks due to an undiagnosed illness that Henry had ailed. The zoo's health team was hard at work the past few weeks treating the illness that was plaguing him.

In a post to Facebook, the zoo says, "He's still not 100%, but his care team saw enough improvement to reunite the family."
