While Ann is best known for being the original Gerber baby, she went on to have a very successful career. She is a mystery novelist and retired English teacher. Ann once shared, “I’m more proud of having earned my master’s degree after 13 years as a housewife, of having worked my way up to chairman of the English department of a large high school, and of my 29-year marriage.”

Ann is also a proud mom, grandmother, and even great-grandmother! Her grandson Chris Colin said that she loves babies. Fans could certainly see the love when Ann posed with the first Gerber baby with Down syndrome a few years ago. Chris said, “She thinks of herself as sort of the face of babies. And because of this funny thing that happened, she gets to meet all these really wonderfully cute little babies in life.”

So sweet. Wishing Ann a very happy birthday!
