Awww, this just warms our heart!
Seb White, a little boy with Down's syndrome, is featured in the catalog and TV commercial for major UK retailer Marks & Spencer, and he looks absolutely darling!
The 4-year-old is all smiles as he poses with other child models in khaki pants, toggle cardigan, and dotted bow tie.
Seb scored the gig after his mother Caroline White posted a message on Marks & Spencer's Facebook page asking them why her son couldn't also be in an ad for the company, and after other peeps on Facebook offered their support, a rep from M&S asked Caroline to bring her son to an audition.
Seb totally charmed everyone at the audition, as his mother recalls:
"Seb was a bit unsure at first about putting on a bow tie, but when I reminded him that Mr Tumble — the star of his favourite CBeebies show — wears one, he cheered up. I couldn't have been prouder of him. I was watching in the wings, my heart in my mouth, and there were endless takes, but he hit his cue every single time."
Seb's a complete natural — just look at that cute smile!
He definitely has a future in modeling!
We have to give M&S props for including a variety of models in their advertisements, and we hope more companies follow suit!
