First Gerber baby poses with current one in adorable photo

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) -- Fans on social media are obsessed with the newest Gerber baby, Lucas Warren.

He went viral back in February when he became the first Gerber baby with Down syndrome.

Now he's stealing hearts online again, but this time he's not alone.

An adorable photo of him and the very first Gerber baby, Ann Turner Cook, is taking the internet by storm.

A Gerber spokesperson said the Warren family was vacationing near Cook and asked to meet up.

Cooks grandson shared the touching moment on Twitter over the weekend and it quickly went viral.

The original Gerber baby is a Tampa Bay native and spent her lifetime teaching English and becoming an American Mystery Novelist.

But Cook will no doubt always be best known for her picture on the Gerber labels.

She became the first Gerber baby when she was about 4 months old in 1927.

The iconic image was sketched in charcoal by a family friend and submitted to Gerber’s call for baby food advertisements.

In 1931, Cook’s face became a trademark.
