The very first Gerber baby and the current Gerber baby have met, and the photographic evidence is adorable.
Lucas Warren, the newest Gerber baby made a splash last February as a media darling because he is the cutest little guy ever, and he’s the first Gerber baby to have Down Syndrome.
Now, he is turning us into goo all over again because he has met a very special Gerber baby — Ann Turner Cook, the first-ever Gerber baby — and the pictures of them together are nothing short of cuteness overload.
My grandmother was the Gerber baby. It was a funny bit of trivia, never made her rich or got us free strained peas or anything. But last week she got to meet the company's newest spokesbaby, named Lucas. Pretty pretttty cute. pic.twitter.com/u7ddWaM1Ed

Cook recently turned 91. Lucas and his family were recently vacationing near Cook’s place of residence. Gerber spokesperson Bernadette Tortorella said Lucas’s family wondered whether or not a meeting between the two ‘babies’ could be arranged. Gerber got on it, and the result is enough to melt your heart.
Chris Colin is Cook’s grandson, and he shared the pictures on his Twitter account over the weekend. They went viral pretty darned quickly, and one look at the pictures shows why!
