Boy with Down's Syndrome becomes face of U.S. baby food giant Gerber

Boy with Down's Syndrome becomes face of U.S. baby food giant Gerber

- After a nationwide search, Gerber has found this year's Gerber Spokesbaby, 18-month-old Lucas Warren from Dalton, Ga.

His mother, Cortney Warren, entered the contest on a whim, NBC's "Today" reported. His mom posted an adorable photo of him on Instagram, using the contest's hashtag.

Bill Partyka, CEO and president of Gerber, says Lucas's smile and happy expression captured the hearts of the Gerber team.

Other parents, especially those who have children with Down syndrome, celebrated.

Instagram user nicki_bloms wrote: "As a mama now carrying a cutie with an extra chromosome this made my day!"

Today, early childhood nutrition leader Gerber® announced a sweet new edition to the Gerber Family with the results of their eighth annual Gerber Baby Photo Search. That baby is nearly 8 now and I'm so optimistic for her future opportunities thanks to initiatives like this. "He's gorgeous! Awesome selection!"

The internet was rife with cooing adoration upon seeing and hearing of Lucas Warren's most recent accomplishment.

Samsung Electronics has donated some 4,000 Galaxy Note8 phones for athletes and officials of the International Olympic Committee so that they can share their memories of the Winter Olympics with the world.

Cortney Warren told "Today" she is excited for the honor, but she wants her son to be recognized as the amusing, outgoing, music-loving child he is.

Hopefully, Lucas's presence on all the Gerber's ads and social networks marketing campaigns will indeed shed some light on the needs the babies with Down Syndrome have and will increase people acceptance.
