UPDATE: We hear the eaglet at the U.S. National Arboretum is moments away from hatching! What a day to come into the world. Watch the live cam here.

Love is in the air--literally! DC's first family of eagles has another eaglet on the way, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture and American Eagle Foundation, which keeps its DC Eagle Cam focused on the pair of eagles that have made residence at the U.S. National Arboretum.

You can see the brand new egg, right now named DC4, which they say will hatch in about 35 days.

The mama and papa eagles have been named Mr. President and The First Lady, and last year successfully raised two eaglets, named Freedom and Liberty. They were bona fide internet stars, with more than 60 million views, according to the foundation.
