It's International Happiness Day and Gerber is using the occasion to spread a little extra dose of happy with spokesbaby Lucas Warren.

"It's definitely been a roller coaster for sure," Lucas' dad, Jason Warren, told 11Alive. "Going from simple people to being thrown in the spotlight. It's definitely a humbling experience because we get to share a little about the special needs community as well."

Baby Lucas' family is hoping his new role will encourage inclusion and offer hope for families on a similar journey.
