These photos captured the judges’ attention, featuring the undeniable resemblance between them. Gerber CEO and President said, “The throwback submission of Maddie and her mom brought a smile to the judges’ faces and perfectly captured the spirit of this year’s program.”

Maddie’s Birth: A Rainbow of Hope

Maddie was born as a “rainbow baby,” symbolizing happiness and hope after a previous miscarriage. Her birth brought immense joy to her loving family.

In addition, both of her parents are from first-generation Filipino American families. This fact adds a vibrant cultural factor to her story.

Her mom, Crystal, a dentist, and dad, Jun, an Air Force physician, have been together for 22 years. Their love story started in high school, and they went through a long-distance relationship for almost ten years.

Moreover, at a young age, Maddie has already displayed her potential and a zest for life, as reported by Yahoo News. She takes swimming lessons, participates in baby music classes, and enjoys outdoor activities with her family.

Her warmth with her family was also evident in their photos when they were outdoors or just trying our new restaurants. It was also shown in their photos how Maddie was fearless in interacting with animals and trying out new foods.

Maddie’s mom, Crystal, also shares her hopes for their future adventures together. She said, “We look forward to witnessing her grow into a kind, compassionate, strong, independent, and worldly individual. We hope to be stationed overseas again to teach Maddie about all the different parts of the world.”

Maddie as Gerber Chief Growing Officer

As the Gerber Baby 2023, Maddie has received a myriad of rewards. She received $25,000 cash which is a great help for her future.

In addition, she will also have a free supply of Gerber products for one year. And that’s not all — Maddie will enjoy a stylish wardrobe from Gerber’s clothing line, ensuring she’s always trendy.

But the most prestigious accolade is her title as “Chief Growing Officer.” This honor embodies her role in supporting the healthy growth of future Gerber babies.

Maddie’s title as the Gerber Baby 2023 is not just a personal victory but also a continuation of a years-long legacy. She will be an addition to the list of past winners and will become part of an iconic baby food brand.

Moreover, Ann Turner Cook, the original Gerber Baby with a sketch since 1928, has become a significant symbol for the brand. As we wait to see more of Maddie’s charming smile in Gerber ads, her story inspires other families.
