The cubs will stay nestled away with their mom for the first week, according to the Zoo. So for now, we bring you a snapshot of the happy family from the Zoo’s bear cam, where you can catch a glimpse of them if you’re lucky. Some Zoo fans even watched the birth happen live via the cam, but most just left their love Thursday on Facebook.
