The Gerber Products Company is holding a yearly contest to choose the new Gerber "spokesbaby".

For 91 years the company, a giant player in the market, featured a charcoal sketch of an infant that became known as the Gerber Baby and was seen as an ideal. According to reports, Lucas' mother did not expect him to win the title.

Netizens have applauded the decision of the brand as the move will support children with special needs and will help the society accept them just as others.

The Gerber Baby contest started in 1927, shortly after the company was founded.

Lucas Warren will be the 2018 Gerber Spokesbaby.

Kristin Wooten, a spokesperson for Gerber, told CNN, "Every year, since the beginning of the Gerber Baby Photo Search, we choose the baby who exemplifies Gerber's longstanding heritage of recognizing that every baby is a Gerber baby, and Lucas is a ideal fit".

Lucas' dad says he hopes it will help shed light on the special needs community, and reminds everyone that people like his son have the potential to change the world, just like everybody else. The proud dad is a helicopter fix person and served in Georgia's National Guard for six years, Fox 5 Atlanta reported.

In reward, the baby and his parents will get a $50,000 check.

The first Gerber baby was Ann Turner Cook, who celebrated her 91st birthday previous year.
