Mjukuu the gorilla and her gal pals at the London Zoo were given photos of their new male mate Yeboah on Thursday – and judging by their reactions, they’re more than just a little excited about the new arrival! Yeboah has received pictures of the ladies as well, to familiarize him with his soon-to-be cohabitants before the big move.

The three single female gorillas – Mjukuu, 10; Effie, 16; and Zaire, 34 – have been without a male since December, when silverback pal Bobby passed away. So, zoo officials are importing the 12-year-old Yeboah from France’s La Boissiere du Dore Zoo in a few weeks, in hopes that he’ll impregnate Mjukuu – who’s reportedly a big flirt. We can’t wait to see what happens on their first date!
