TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- While the newborn Sumatran tiger cubs may be getting most of the attention, babies are popping up all over the Topeka Zoo this time of the year.

Their newest parents are over in the Trumpeter Swan exhibit where four baby swans have just hatched, the zoo announced on its Facebook page on Tuesday. (Trivia time: a baby swan is called a cygnet)

The proud parents may soon have even more mouths to feed too. The zoo said there are still three more eggs that haven't hatched yet.

Our fingers are crossed.
