Every year Gerber holds a contest to find the new face of their products, and their criteria for picking a baby are very simple - they have to have a great smile and be extremely cute. Lucas Warren won this year's contest and he’s been gaining quite a bit of attention since he won, thanks to one thing that sets him apart from every other Gerber Baby.
Lucas was born with Down Syndrome, and he is one of the cutest and friendliest babies around. Lucas lives in Georgia with his adoring family, and seems just so happy to be the newest Gerber Baby!
Lucas’s great smile beat out the other 140,000 applicants for the position, and it’s very clear why. His adorable face is going to be featured on all of Gerber’s social media campaigns and Gerber ads throughout the next year.
Since he won, he also gets an award of $50,000! His parents have put the money away in a bank account that Lucas can use when he goes to college. Lucas’ parents are so proud and happy that he was chosen to be the newest Gerber baby!
They hope that by having Lucas as the newest Gerber Baby, it will help raise awareness for Down Syndrome, and they are sure that it will help educate people about acceptance and support. At only 18 months old, Lucas is going to be doing more than his part to help raise awareness about Down Syndrome and other people living with similar situations.
Lucas has definitely earned his position of Gerber Baby, and we’re so glad he was picked. We can’t wait to see all of the wonderful photos of Lucas that are sure to come out this year!
