CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

On Friday, the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden announced their newest addition.

Lainey Lynn and Shewa welcomed a filly on Wednesday.

Mom and baby are both doing well and will be off-exhibit to encourage bonding.

On Facebook, the zoo said they are hoping to have their wonder-foal addition outside sometime next week.

Zoo officials are accepting name suggestions on Twitter and Facebook.  If you use the hashtag #zebrababy, you can see your suggestion on digital billboards along I-71 & I-75.

This is Lainey Lynn and Shewa's second foal.  Their first was Marty, a colt.
