This is such an exciting news for everyone! Gerber just announced this morning its newest spokesbaby and it is LUCAS. After an extensive search on Instagram where they received more than 140,000 baby pictures they chose Lucas. The special announcement was revealed on the morning TV show — Today Show.
Cortney Warren said she entered the Gerber contest on a whim, after a relative pointed out an Instagram post seeking submissions for baby pictures. She posted Lucas’ photo with the hashtag required to enter the contest.
This is an extraordinary and a welcome choice because Lucas is the first spokesbaby with Down Syndrome.
According to Bill Partyka, CEO of Gerber: “Every year, we choose the baby who has exemplifies Gerber’s longstanding heritage of recognizing that every baby is a Gerber baby.”
“This year, Lucas is the perfect fit.”
Jason Warren, Lucas’ dad, said: “We’re hoping this will impact everyone — that it will shed a light on the special needs community and help more individuals with special needs be accepted and not limited.”
