ARLINGTON, VA (June 28, 2021) – Today, early childhood nutrition leader Gerber announced the winner of its 11th annual Photo Search, who will serve as the 2021 Gerber Spokesbaby, as well as an important and adorable honorary role on Gerber’s Executive Committee as Chief Growing Officer (CGO). Zane Kahin from Winter Park, Florida captivated the judging panel with his cheerful attitude, infectious giggles and playful smile that can light up any room.

As the latest Gerber Spokesbaby and first-ever CGO, Baby Zane represents every Gerber baby, and his family’s story of perseverance and hope serves as a reminder of what unites all parents and drives everyone at Gerber: the promise to do anything for baby.

“Zane is our little comedian – he loves to crack himself up and even wakes up laughing,” said Erin Kahin, Zane’s mother in a press release. “On February 3, 2021, our shining light Zane came into our lives – beating all odds. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 27 years old and a newly single woman, my doctors were unsure how the impact of chemotherapy, radiation and a double mastectomy would impact my ability to have children. After getting married to my husband over a year ago, we surprisingly conceived naturally and had a near perfect pregnancy. Our family continues to enjoy every moment and look at life with appreciation and a sense of humor.”
