Original Gerber baby meets current Gerber baby


(WKEF/WRGT) – It’s being called the most adorable photo ever, and we agree, it’s doesn’t get much cuter. At 91, the original Gerber baby, Ann Turner Cook, had the chance to meet the current Gerber baby, Lucas Warren.

The two snapped a picture together while the Warren family was on vacation in Florida. Gerber helped arrange the meeting over the weekend, CNN reports.

Cook became the famous face for the baby food brand after an artist sketched a picture of her when she was just four months old. Her face became the company’s official trademark in 1931.

In February, the current Gerber spokesbaby, Lucas Warren, made history as he became the first baby with Down Syndrome to be Gerber’s spokesbaby of the year.

Cook’s grandson, Chris Colin shared the photo of the two famous faces meeting for the first time on Twitter, it’s since been retweeted more than 7,000 times.

My grandmother was the Gerber baby. It was a funny bit of trivia, never made her rich or got us free strained peas or anything. But last week she got to meet the company’s newest spokesbaby, named Lucas. Pretty pretttty cute.
