The original Gerber baby celebrated her birthday this November. Ann Turner Cook was born on November 20, 1926.

In 1928, Gerber held a contest to find a face that would represent their baby food, according to ABC 7.

Later that year, Cook began to appear on Gerber products. In 1931, Cook became the company’s official trademark.

Gerber posted a tribute to Cook on Facebook on her birthday. The post read “Happy 91st Birthday to the original Gerber baby, Ann Turner Cook!”
