Toronto's first family of capybaras finally announced its big new today because on February 23, "Bonnie and Clyde" became the proud parents of three capy-babies (or pups).

Mayor John Tory wished the new mom and dad mazel tov on Twitter this morning. The capy-babies even got their own birth announcement in the Toronto Star.
Since these (relatively) giant rodents are native to South America, they've been inside all winter. However, they made a brief outdoor appearance today, likely to appease their adoring fans.
You should be able to see the whole family at High Park this spring.
