An 18-month-old boy with Down's Syndrome has become the new face of United States baby food giant Gerber.

"Lucas' winning smile and joyful expression won our hearts this year, and we are thrilled to name him our 2018 Spokesbaby".

Lucas Warren from Dalton, Ga., was chosen from more than 140,000 constants as the victor of Gerber's 2018 Spokesbaby contest. This is historic, as he is the first baby with Down's syndrome to be named as the Gerber baby in the contest's history. Lucas Warren, the new Gerber baby for 2018, will appear in all the company's social media campaigns, as well as in the future company's ads and commercials.

In trending news this morning, a Boston burger joint is helping patrons pop the question, and Gerber's new spokesbaby is making history. "This year, Lucas is the flawless fit".
