Dolphin calf born at Shedd Aquarium

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A Pacific white-sided dolphin calf was born Monday at Shedd Aquarium in Chicago.

Baby and mom are doing swimmingly.

The calf's gender is not yet known.

The birth is a rare addition -- only 16 Pacific white-sided dolphins are in North American facilities, which makes the birth even more special.

For now, mom and baby are getting some time away from the public to bond.
