SEASIDE, OR (KPTV) -

A day before her birthday, Greta the seal gave birth to a bouncing baby pup at the Seaside Aquarium.

The baby seal was born Sunday night.

Aquarium workers weren't immediately able to get close enough to identify whether the pup was a boy or a girl, as mom is pretty protective of her little one.

According to the aquarium's Facebook page, both seals are doing well and "accepting visitors."

Greta turned 18 years old the following day.

Greta also gave birth about this same time last year. That baby seal was the first born at the aquarium in two years.
