A 1-year-old baby boy from Georgia has become the first child with Down Syndrome to win the Gerber baby contest.
Lucas Warren was chosen out of a pool of 140,000 contestants as the winner of the 2018 Gerber Spokesbaby contest.
Lucas is the first child with Down Syndrome to win the contest since it began 90 years ago.
“Lucas’ winning smile and joyful expression won our hearts this year, and we are all thrilled to name him our 2018 Spokesbaby,” Bill Partyka, president and CEO of Gerber, said in a statement. “Every year, we choose the baby who best exemplifies Gerber’s longstanding heritage of recognizing that every baby is a Gerber baby, and this year, Lucas is the perfect fit.”
