BISMARCK, N.D. - Meet the first Gerber Baby with Down Syndrome. One-year-old Lucas Warren is the first Down syndrome child to be named a Gerber Gaby since the company started the contest more than 90 years ago.

Lucas' parents entered him in the contest after a relative pointed out an ad looking for submissions.

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