The staff at Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, South Carolina say they're "roaring with excitement" over some new additions to the family.

Zoo officials say lioness Lindelani gave birth Monday morning to two healthy cubs. The zoo released video of the new family Wednesday on its Facebook page.

Unfortunately, the zoo says a third cub did not survive.

The mother and cubs will remain in an isolated habitat with their mother until they're old enough to join the zoo's pride, zookeepers say.
