BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A new batch of emoji coming out in 2017 includes new animals, facial expressions, mythical creatures and foods.

It also includes a breastfeeding woman and a woman wearing a headscarf.

Emojipedia announced that the Unicode Consortium has approved 69 new ones in all as part of the Emoji 5.0 update for 2017, slated for release in June, according to a Forbes report.

After the Unicode Consortium encodes new emoji, vendors like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Twitter decide when to implement the changes, the report says.
