When you’re internet famous, a reality show is the next logical step. Fiona the Hippo stole the world's hearts when she was born six weeks premature at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden on January 24.

People were captivated by the little hippo and her progress, following along with the zoo’s Instagram and blog to get the latest about her health and milestones.
