CHICAGO -- The Shedd Aquarium in Chicago marked a big birthday for its Pacific white-sided dolphin calf. Kukdlaa just turned 1!

He was born on April 18, 2016. Check out the video below to watch him come into the world:

Kukdlaa's name translates to "bubbles." Last year, ABC7 Eyewitness News partnered with the Shedd to help find a name for the young dolphin.

Since then, Kukdlaa has been playing a lot and becoming very close to his trainer.

The aquarium set up a live stream in the Abbott Oceanarium to give people at home a glance into Kukdlaa's daily life. The stream will be up from April 17-21.

Happy birthday, Kukdlaa!
