Original Gerber Baby, Ann Turner Cook, Replaced by Mary Jane Montoya

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Original Gerber Baby, Ann Turner Cook, today welcomed the news face of Gerber, Mary Jane Montoya. Ann Turner Cook, now 85, tells news that she was honored to welcome her replacement, after decades. In 1928, Gerber did a national search to find the face of its baby products. They chose Cook. Soon her image became the face of all the company’s products. But now a change is place for the company’s products.

The Tampa resident tells news how a family friend encouraged her mother to promote her at a young age. Cook says family friend Dorothy Hope Smith encouraged her mother to enter Ann in modeling competitions in 1927. A year later, Gerber launched a national search and selected Cook as the winner. It wasn’t until three years later that Gerber saw the need to protect Cook’s image and got trademark protection for the likeness.

Cook later became an English teacher. But she tells the Today show this week “It’s been wonderful to me to be the symbol for babies and I’ve become a symbol worldwide for babies. I can always be very proud of the product

Now Mary Jane Montoy, 8 months old from Fresno, has been selected as the new face of the product. Mary Jane beat out three hundred thousand competitors. Her mother tells news “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.”
