Thanks to Gerber, we all get a chance to meet the adorable Magnolia Earl. She is the new face of the baby food giant.
Magnolia who just celebrated her first birthday on May 9th was selected as the spokes-baby for 2020. This makes her the first-ever adopted baby to be featured in the campaign since it began in 1928.
She was adopted officially last year, her parents are Courtney and Russell Earl. Magnolia has two older siblings, Whitney (12) and Charlotte (8) who are also adopted.
“Winning (the) photo search is an opportunity to tell Magnolia’s story and shed light on all the beautiful and different ways families are made,” Courtney Earl, Magnolia’s mother, told KRON.
“This is incredible. It means that when people see our families or if you see a family that doesn’t necessarily match, that you don’t have to question the belonging of anybody in that family.”
Russell agreed, adding that, “A family is built on love. We may all look different, but we’re one family.”
