She is Ann Turner Cook , born today (20 Nov) in 1926.
This 88-year-old American great-grandmother is the original Gerber baby. She’s also a mystery novelist (as in mystery novels, geddit).
Man, they sure know how to pick a baby model in those days! She looks great even now.
As a Gerber baby myself, this woman is my hero.

What the heck is a Gerber???
The food was … well … so-so, but the bottles were fantastic.
Give it a few more years and she’ll be back to eating Gerber herself and using diapers, if not already. (Sorry, just kidding.)
You can read about Gerber’s (not-such-a-big-deal) branding blunder in Africa.
