Adventure Aquarium announced Wednesday morning that their new baby penguin, Casanova, is a girl!

The identity was officially revealed by Casanova’s parents painting a special canvas pink. Visitors were able to make guesses on the gender of the baby for a chance to win special prizes, including a behind-the-scenes meet and greet with the baby penguin.

She was born to African penguins Kali and Tyson on January 11 and her gender was determined through DNA testing.
