No free Note8 for North Korean Olympians? Snap soars; historic 'spokesbaby'

As many as 140,000 photos of babies were considered for the grand prize. 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. But Lucas is special, for so many reasons.

The Gerber Baby photo contest has been going on since 2010, with a new victor chosen every year. Gerber announced the newest Gerber Baby spokesbaby, and it's a historical and monumental choice.

Lucas Warren, 18-month-old baby from Dalton, Georgia, has been declared the victor of the annual Gerber Baby Photo Search.

His mother, Cortney Warren, entered Lucas in the 90-year-old contest when a relative mentioned that Gerber put out its annual call for adorable babies, she told "Today".


In a segment filmed in the family's north Georgia home, dad Jason described his wife's exuberant reaction upon getting the news in the mail that Lucas had won the contest. Warren posted a photo of Lucas sporting a polka dot bow tie and an open-mouthed grin on Instagram and tagged Gerber. He is the first baby with Down syndrome to win since the contest's start in the 1920's. "This year, Lucas is the flawless fit".

The title means Lucas will be featured on Gerber's social media channels and in its ads throughout the year.

As the new Gerber grand prize victor, Lucas will be named the 2018 Gerber Spokesbaby and his family will receive $50,000, which his parents are going to put toward his education. "He's got an awesome personality and he goes through the milestones of every child", Cortney told Mashable.
