As the grand prize winner, Mercy’s face will done Gerber ads throughout 2011. While Gerber judges ultimately decided upon the curly headed cutie, the contest was open for several months and allowed parents and friends to send in pictures of their gorgeous babes to Gerber’s website and campaign for people to vote for their cuties. The baby or toddler with the most votes on a monthly basis won Flip video cameras. The contest allowed for babies and toddlers up to 48 months of age.

Winner — little Mercy Townsend resides in Ohio. According to WKYC News, her mother, Tahisha Williams-Townsend, is surprised and thankful. She says that while little Mercy doesn’t understand the extent of her rewards, she is going around saying, “Thank you.” Mercy is scheduled to jet set to New York city for her official photo shoot next week. Looks like 2 year old Mercy is starting life out with a pretty impressive resume.

    That’s good that she won….maybe she can take the $25,000 scholarship and cash it in on a kiddie partial.

    She is an adorable baby and happy she won, however I’m a little upset b/c I had an adorable picture of my daughter that I could not submit b/c the rules clearly state that ANY girl baby of ANY age had to have a shirt on and she clearly does not. Congratulations to her but it doesn’t seem fair.

    Honestly she is kinda cute but i think her winning has to do with her ethnic race. She definitely not a Gerber baby!!
