The original Gerber baby had a big birthday recently!

Ann Turner Cook turned 91 years old on Monday, Gerber’s Facebook page said.

WREG reported the connection of Ann to the sketch of the baby was kept secret for 40 years!

Gerber’s website said in 1928 they held a contest to find a baby to be the face of a baby food ad campaign and the rest was history.

Happy birthday, Ann!
