Happy the hippo may soon be even happier.

The hippo will be shacking up with a pair of female hippos at the Milwaukee County Zoo.

Patty and Puddles will be sharing their new digs with Happy, who is moving from the National Zoo in Washington, D.C.

The 28-year-old Happy was born at the National Zoo, but needs a new home.

The zoo is expanding its elephant exhibit and is using Happy's space.

Zoo officials in Milwaukee hope they'll have some little hippos if Happy gets really happy with his new lady friends.
