SEASIDE, OR (KPTV) -

It's a boy! Or maybe it's a girl? Workers at the Seaside Aquarium aren't quite sure yet, but they're still happy to welcome a brand new baby seal.

Keith Chandler, aquarium general manager, said he discovered the facility's newest addition at 4:30 a.m. Thursday.

The mother is 17-year-old Greta and her baby harbor seal is the first born at the aquarium in two years.

The new mom is very protective of her newborn and aquarium workers haven't been able to examine the baby seal thoroughly yet to determine if it's a boy or a girl.

Even so, Chandler said both mom and baby appear to be healthy and happy.
