"Every year, because the start of the Gerber Baby Photography Search, we choose the infant who exemplifies Gerber's longstanding history of recognizing that each baby is a Gerber baby, and Lucas is a perfect fit," Kristin Wooten, a spokeswoman for Gerber, advised CNN.

Lucas is from Dalton, Georgia. Gerber selected him from more than 140,000 entries to its image search competition. The contest started soon after the business was founded in 1927 when it released a call buying a baby to feature in its advertisings.
