The world’s most famous baby turned 91 this week

Ann Turner Cook, the face of Gerber baby food, just turned 91.

Ann Turner Cook might be the most famous baby in the entire world, and she just turned 91 years old.

Cook is a mystery novelist and a retired English teacher, but before that, she was the original Gerber Baby.

In 1928, the Gerber company held a competition to find a face for the baby food line it had just launched. According to Gerber, many artists sent in elaborate oil paintings. But artist Dorothy Hope Smith sent in a simple charcoal sketch of her neighbor Leslie Turner’s four-month-old baby girl, Ann.

Smith’s sketch is adorable, and practically every person in the U.S. would recognize it, because Smith’s drawing became the face of Gerber baby food.

“The executives at Gerber couldn’t resist the adorable baby face and selected the classic drawing,” the company wrote.

Smith had sent in the sketch as a sample, and offered to elaborate on the picture if it was chosen. The company decided to use the charcoal sketch as-is, and the picture of baby Ann Turner Cook started appearing on Gerber products in 1928. In 1931, Smith’s sketch became the company’s official trademark.

Cook’s identity as the famous Gerber Baby was revealed to the public in 1978. On Monday, November 20, Cook celebrated her 91st birthday. Her face has been associated with baby food for her entire life, check out the 11 healthiest and unhealthiest foods for your baby.


Original Gerber baby turns 93 years old

(CNN) -- The original Gerber baby with sparkling eyes and a cherubic face is all grown up -- with a full head of white hair and the same contagious smile.

And that iconic baby, Ann Turner Cook, just turned 93 on Wednesday.

"Happy birthday to the OG -- that's Original Gerber -- baby, Ann Turner Cook!" the company captioned a picture of her next to a jar with the classic logo.

The charcoal sketch of Cook's angelic face as a four-month-old has adorned jars of baby food for decades. In 1928, Gerber held an advertising campaign looking for the company's new face. Cook's neighbor submitted a drawing of her face for the contest and three years later, it became Gerber's official trademark.

The company had invited artists to submit different versions of Gerber babies as part of the campaign.

The neighbor, Dorothy Hope Smith, offered to add more details to the sketch if it was accepted. But when the executives at Gerber saw it, they wanted it as-is.

Gerber has expanded its business beyond food to include skin care, clothing and other children's products, but the face of the original Gerber baby remains plastered on most items.

Before the name behind the angelic face was revealed in 1978, popular guesses of the baby's identity included Humphrey Bogart, Elizabeth Taylor, Sen. Bob Dole and Jane Seymour.

Cook taught English in Florida and wrote mystery novels after her retirement.
