CORONADO, Calif. - Happy birthday!

A sea lion welcomed a new pup into the world early Wednesday as bicyclists embarked on their morning ride.

The sea lion gave birth around 5 a.m. on a Coronado bike trail, as surprised riders began their day.

The bike trail was closed while Coronado Police responded to contain the area around the two from nearby foot and vehicle traffic.

SeaWorld San Diego crews are responding to help make sure the sea lion and pup are in good health and cared for if needed.
