We officially have a new Gerber baby, and she’s as cute as can be. Looking at her chubby cheeks and perfect natural pose for the camera, it’s easy to see why little Isla of Troy, Michigan won the 2015 Gerber Baby photo contest.

Over 170,000 pictures were submitted to the panel of judges for the Gerber Baby Photo Search, but Isla, who is just 7 months old, was the final selection. The judges “fell in love with Isla’s cheeky smile and fun hair.”

The contest happens every year, and the prize is more than just pride and bragging rights for your baby being the face of Gerber. The baby’s parents also get to take home $50,000 and $1,500 worth of Gerber clothing. The proud parents say they will be using the money to pay off some debts, donate to some charitable causes, and of course, save for their 2 kids’ futures.

In addition to a nice boost to her college fund, Isla will get to have her photos featured on Gerber’s social media accounts for the entire year. She will also appear in more advertisements for the company as part of their 2016 campaigns. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal!

Isla’s mother, Rachael Welch, says, “Isla is always so happy, and we really think it showed in her winning photo.” Not only that, but, “She’s got that same smile on her face every day.”

It’s good to hear that Isla is such a happy girl, and she’s certainly got something to smile about as the new Gerber baby. She is also making history as the first Asian-American to represent the company in this campaign.
