And baby makes 14. That's the current white rhinoceros count at Israel's Ramat Gan Safari now that Rami has been welcomed into the world.

The little guy, born last week to Rihanna, already weighs roughly 110 pounds, no surprise considering that the white rhinoceros is the second largest land mammal in the world.

Rihanna, who is 8, is "a natural mother; she is nursing and protecting her new son," the park said in a statement.

Motherhood may be new to Rihanna, but the resultant media attention is not. Last year she made headlines when she waltzed right out of the safari after one of the gates was left open.

Motherhood, however, sounds like it's helping to settle her down.
