Lucas has won the hearts of millions of people over the last six months including Cook’s! She first congratulated the adorable toddler saying:
“Let me offer my warmest congratulations to Lucas, our newest Gerber spokesbaby, and to his parents. I know you will take great pride in representing Gerber this year, as I have for the past 90 years. There is no greater privilege than to be a universal symbol for babies all over the world. I am delighted to take part in this celebration. Lucas is precious and I look forward to watching him grow this year!”
But last month, Cook went one step further: She was able to meet Lucas and spend some time with the newest spokesbaby.
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

Her grandson, Chris, posted the above photo to Twitter and as you can see, they are too cute together! Cook, who lives in Tampa was happy to meet with Lucas and his parents after they contacted her before the family’s Florida vacation. She shared her thoughts on the meeting as well as gave her local news a little bit of info on what she’s been up to since her angelic face became a part of American history. Check it out below…
