MI baby wins Gerber contest

TROY, Mich. (WOTV) — Meet Isla Welch, the adorable 2016 Gerber Baby of the Year from Michigan.

Seven-month-old Isla, who lives in Troy near Detroit, beat out more than 170,000 babies who were entered into the sixth annual Gerber Baby Photo Search.

Isla’s mom told NBC’s TODAY they frequently get stopped by strangers who comment on Isla’s chubby cheeks and full head of hair.

“Isla is always happy,” her mom, Rachael, told TODAY Parents. “She’s always smiling and giggling and on the move. Her favorite thing to do is dance to music and play with her big sister, Nora.”

Her parents will receive a $50,000 grand prize, as well as $1,500 worth of Gerber clothing. Isla will also be featured in 2016 Gerber ads.
