Que Linda! The New Gerber Baby Is Latina

Can you say adorable? The newest Gerber baby has been chosen and she's a cutie! The fresh face of the brand is 8-month-old Mary Jane Montoya, daughter of Sara and Billy Montoya from Fresno, California, reports Fox News Latino. Mary Jane joined the original Gerber baby, Ann Taylor Cook, now 85, on the TODAY show after Gerber announced the winner. 

Gerber held a Facebook contest, where parents and guardians entered their little ones in hopes to represent the iconic brand come 2013. More than 300,000 entries were received, before a winner was chosen for the new ad campaign.

"It took a little while to get that picture, too, because she would not stop looking at the grass and looking at the birds... of course we think our baby is adorable and beautiful, but every parent sees that in their child," Sara told TODAY's Natalie Morales, holding Mary Jane on her lap.

Mary Jane is the first child of the couple. They plan to put the $50,000 prize money into a college fund.

"It's so exciting, you're just bursting at the seams with pride for your daughter," Billy Montoya said.
