The 15-month-old beat out more than 500,000 contestants

Last year, an adorable baby boy named Lucas made history as the first Gerber baby contest victor with Down syndrome. He was the first ever "Spokesbaby" with Down syndrome.

Kairi Yang, a 15-month-old from North Carolina, wowed the judges with the "curiosity" in her eyes that was exhibited in the winning photo her parents sent in. Kairi's mom, Ying Vue, told Gerber.

The Hmong are an ethnic group in East and Southeast Asia that have their own language and are primarily located in southern China, Vietnam, and Laos. Her photo became the company's official trademark in 1931.

Not only does the tot have a new modeling gig, but she has also made history as the first Gerber baby of Hmong descent. The new spokesbaby shares a home with her parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.

'Being surrounded by all her family has been a very positive influence on Kairi's life, especially when it comes to preserving our culture and tradition, ' the mom said.

Well, we're here to tell you that this isn't going to happen and this theory is just asking to get DEBUNK'D. Speaking to Collider ahead of the release of Captain Marvel , Feige elaborated on the thinking behind that.

Kairi beat 544,000 contestants to claim the top spot, and she's the first Gerber baby of Hmong descent.

This year, Gerber invited little Lucas to be an "honorary judge" of the competition.

Kairi will appear as Gerber's "spokesbaby" on social media, and her family will receive $50,000 for winning the contest, according to Gerber's press release.

Kairi will serve "as the face of Gerber for the year", including a key role in the company's 2019 social media campaign, said a release.

"It's been an incredible year celebrating our 2018 Spokesbaby Lucas Warren and his family, and we are excited to see the world fall in love all over again with our newest Spokesbaby", said a statement from Bill Partyka, Gerber's president and CEO. This year's contest attracted a record 544,000 entries.
