Lucas Warren was announced as Gerber’s 2018 spokesbaby on Wednesday and is the first baby with Down syndrome to be chosen as the face of the company.

Chief Executive and President of Gerber Bill Partyka said Lucas' smile was what made him stand out from the other 140,000 photos submitted.

“Every year we choose the baby who best exemplifies Gerber’s long-standing heritage of recognizing that every baby is a Gerber baby,” Partyka said in a news release. “This year, Lucas is the perfect fit.”

Lucas, a 1-year-old from Georgia, is the eighth winner of the Gerber Baby Photo Search. His family wins a $50,000 prize and Lucas will be featured on Gerber’s social media pages throughout the year. 

"He's very outgoing and never meets a stranger," mom Courtney Warren told "Today." "He loves to play, loves to laugh and loves to make other people laugh."

Other parents of children with disabilities celebrated the decision on social media.
