For those of you who are curious, yes, Koko is still very much interested in having a baby, and still has some time to do so naturally (gorillas can have babies into their thirties). The above photo shows Koko with one of her favorite surrogate babies: the famed "WaterBaby" doll that she takes with her almost everywhere.
