New Gerber baby is from Lancaster County
LANCASTER COUNTY (WPMT)-Gerber has a new “spokesbaby”–and she’s from right here in Lancaster County!
7-month-old Grace from East Petersburg captured the attention of the nation after taking top honors for the 5th annual Gerber “Be Our Baby” photo search 2014!
Little Grace beat out over 180,000 entries to take the grand prize of $50,000 and the chance to appear in a future Gerber advertisement as the 2015 “spokesbaby.”
The winning photo features Grace posing naked on a bed as she rests her hands under her chin.
“The photo that won was taken only 5 photos from when I started taking pictures of her that day,” said Gabrielle, Grace’s mother, on how she captured the winning photo. “ She must have taken her hands out of her mouth and posed them like that for a split second because I didn’t even realize how cute she was posing until after I was completely done taking pictures and looking back at what I had just taken!”
In the last five years of Photo Search, Gerber has celebrated six other babies, from a dimpled, smiling two-year old in 2010 to a pair of precocious and charming twins in 2013.
