The company says that Lucas embodies the spirit of a Gerberbaby and won the judges over with his infectious smile. As the Grand Prize victor, Lucas family will receive $50,000, he will be given the coveted title of 2018 Gerber Spokesbaby and take a front seat on Gerbers social media channels throughout the year.
Lucas' father, Jason Warren, said he hopes this will bring more acceptance for people with conditions such as Down syndrome. Since 2010, the company has held a contest to choose a baby to be the face of the brand for the year. (The Gerber baby drawing goes back many more decades.) Within minutes, the engaging smile of the spunky new "spokesbaby" charmed the anchors and captured America's heart. Cortney Warren said she entered the contest on a whim, after a relative pointed out an ad seeking submissions.
Lucas Warren is an infant from Georgia and the 2018 Gerber spokesbaby. Gerber picked Lucas from more than 140-thousand entries to its photo search contest.
His parents posted a photo on Instagram with the contest's hashtag showing the baby smiling.
