First baby with Down syndrome wins Gerber baby contest

The smile on the 18 months old babies face will melt your heart because he's simply adorable.

The Warrens entered the Gerber baby photo contest on a whim, they said, and were shocked when they found out their boy had been chosen from more than 140,000 babies to be the official 2018 Gerber spokesbaby.

Since 1928, the charcoal drawing of the original Gerber baby, Ann Turner Cook, has been recognized worldwide. In 2011, the company relaunched the contest to find their next Gerber baby, Today reported.

The big prize comes with $50,000, which the Warrens say they will put toward Lucas’s education.
