It's a girl!

Update: See the pup live online during an upcoming Google+ Hangout on Air! Details.

It's been just over a week since we shared the happy news about Ursula and Isaac's adorable pup, and we have even more exciting news to share this week: It's a girl!

That face!

All the trainers wanted to give mom and baby some space after the birth so the pair could bond and rest. After a couple days, the trainers did a closer examination on the pup and determined her sex. She's also tipping the scales at 11 pounds now! The pup continues to nurse, call and grow stronger every day in her cozy behind-the-scenes space she shares with Ursula. 

Ursula continues to be a great mom. She's eating well and teaching her little girl all about being a fur seal.

The pup does not have a name just yet. But you can bet the little one will have a name soon! Be sure to check back often to watch this little one grow.

Notice that little patch of white fur at the base of the pup's flipper—it's a sweet little birth mark!  

The pup will remain behind the scenes until this fall. But you can still see dad Isaac and big brother Flaherty at the New Balance Foundation Marine Mammal Center! Pick up your timed tickets online and print them out at home. You'll be watching the fur seals and sea lions splash it up in no time.

And see what a splash the pup has made online! We've been getting well-wishes from all over the world. And that cute little mug has been making the rounds online. Here a smattering of media coverage about the pup:
