Dishin’ The Dirt: Meet Lucas! The First Gerber Baby With Down Syndrome.


By Kelbin Ramirez

Lucas Warren is the winner of the 2018 Gerber baby photo contest. The one year old is from Dalton, Georgia and is the first baby to have down syndrome since the contest started in 2010. The CEO of Gerber said that Lucas’s smile and happy expression captured the hearts of the Gerber team! His mommy, Cortney, is so proud of him but she says that she hopes people don’t just see him as a baby with down syndrome, but more as a happy and energetic baby.

"He may have Down syndrome, but he's always Lucas first," said Cortney. "He's got an awesome personality and he goes through the milestones of every child... we're hoping when he grows up and looks back on this, he'll be proud of himself and not ashamed of his disability."

He is just too cute!!!! Check him out on the Today Show.
