The votes are in, and there's a new Gerber baby ’round these here parts.
At least temporarily!
Her name is Mary Jane Montoya and no one has killed her father - in fact, her father is the reason she's been welcomed into the iconic family of the Gerber babies.
Her parents sent the baby's picture in to Gerber's contest and ended up beating out 300,000 other contenders to claim a $50,000 prize that has the parents happy and the baby even happier!
The family appeared on the Today show with none other than 85-year-old Ann Turner Cook, who is the original Gerber baby!
Here's what she said about the new baby:
"She is just adorable and she is a delightful little person."
And what did the proud mother have to say of her photogenic little girl? She said:
"It's so exciting, you're just bursting at the seams with pride for your daughter. It took a little while to get that picture. because she would not stop looking at the grass and looking at the birds."
Is there some way to combine a LOL with an AWW?
Because that last comment totally deserves one!
